Tests show soil no cause for CTV building collapse

PHOTOS ABOVE: MARTIN HUNTER

Yep, she’s a rough and tumble game „„ By Gordon Findlater CANTERBURY under-17 all-rounder Jesse Frew proved that even those in the outfield can’t escape the dangers of cricket. He may not have been at threat from a flying bat in the Big Bash like Melbourne Renegades wicketkeeper Peter Nevill (below), or facing a barrage of Black Caps’ bouncers like Bangladesh batsman Mominul Haque (right), but his take on a somersault sure put his body on the line. The cricketing gods were unable

to shine on Frew, playing against Otago at the national under-17 cricket tournament currently taking place at Lincoln University. Perhaps understandable considering the game took place on Friday the 13th. Canterbury coach Dion Ebrahim said Frew’s neck was fine and he was more gutted about dropping the catch. Canterbury drew both of their opening two-day matches with first innings points going to the opposition. The tournament wraps up on Saturday.

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart “NOTHING UNTOWARD” has been found in an excavation and soil testing of the Canterbury Television building foundations as police come closer to announcing whether criminal charges will be laid over the collapse. The Star has obtained a letter police sent to the families of the victims about the excavation and testing – the last part of a long criminal investigation into the collapse which claimed 115 lives. “The experts confirmed that there was nothing untoward with the foundations or soil that altered the opinion that they had provided earlier,” Detective Superintendent Peter Read said in the letter. “The foundations and soil of the CTV building and site were examined by Beca Engineers and Canterbury of University staff during excavations carried out in August this year.” The Star has also learned families of the victims expect to hear the result of the investigation at a meeting with police on February 21, the day before the sixth anniversary of the 2011 earthquake. Maan Alkaisi, whose wife Maysoon Abbas died in the CTV building, said he hoped to see charges laid. •Turn to page 7

Rise Up Christchurch

Thursday January 19 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

CRIKEY, THE years fly by. I remember reporting on Dave Meredith in his heyday on the snooker table. Today (page 52) young(ish) Star sports journalist Gordon Findlater covers Meredith’s ongoing sporting journey – seniors tennis. This weekend he aims for his second singles title in the over-65 category at the Tennis NZ senior national champs at the Hagley and Cashmere tennis clubs. Meredith is no stranger to tennis. He won a Canterbury under-17 singles title and a secondary school title with Christchurch Boys’ High School during the 1960s. On another sporting note, great pix from photographer Martin Hunter on page 1 today. Capturing those sort of shots is not easy; you need anticipation, speed, pinpoint accuracy and of course lots of skill. I did consider another headline for the photos: ‘Yep, she’s a rough and fumble game’. But it might have been a bit tough on the young cricketer, looks like he made a great fist of the attempt. – Barry Clarke

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

WITHIN SPITTING DISTANCE

This week in history saw the city council swimming pool in the Avon River open on January 17, 1877. It wasn’t one of the city council’s better projects being located only a few hundred metres downstream from the hospital’s effluent outfall. On January 18, 1894, the New Brighton Pier opened. Between January 19 and 22, 1954, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visited Christchurch, it was the first New Zealand visit by a reigning monarch. On January 19, 1983, a tornado and hailstorm struck the western suburbs. Damage was severe at Halswell. On January 21, 1951, 10 people were lost when two yachts – Husky and Argo – sank in a storm during the Wellington to Christchurch centennial race. It was New Zealand’s worst yachting disaster. Only one of the 22 starters finished the race.

Christchurch’s Nicola McDonald won the national cherry stone-spitting competition (women’s section) with a 7.1m distance in the Old Cromwell Historic Precinct on Saturday. First-time entrant Dave Kowalewski, of Wyndham, claimed the men’s title and the overall prize, spitting a cherry stone 11.3m. Lucy Sawyer, 13, of Christchurch, won the girls’ section (5.65m), Aidan O’Connell, 13, of Invercargill, won the boys’ section (6.8m). The event was part of the annual Cherry Festival. Guinness World Records says the world record is 28.51m, set by Brian “Young Gun” Krause, of the United States, in 2004.

Lyttelton restaurant makes world’s best fine-dining list „„ By Annabelle Dick DON’T BOTHER trying to find a menu for Lyttelton restaurant Roots – it doesn’t have one. In spite of that, it still managed to land a placing on the prestigious list of the world’s 1000 best eateries, La Liste. The coveted list is a restaurant guide compiled from hundreds of guidebooks and online review sites of the world’s 1000 top restaurants. Eight New Zealand restaurants made the list and Roots was the only one outside of Auckland to make the cut. It’s an honour for owner and head chef, Chilean national Giulio Sturla, who only celebrated Roots fourth anniversary last November. “It’s been such a short period of time and we’ve achieved so much already but we’ve just started,” he said. “We’re so new we feel we can do more, so it’s reinforcing that we’re doing the right thing and this is pushing us to do go even further.” Mr Sturla, who has worked in restaurants in Mexico, the United States, Jamaica, Ecuador, Chile and Spain moved to New Zealand in 2009 with his wife Christy Martin. The pair opened up Roots in 2012 and created a dining experience different to most by removing the menus and rely-

In Brief BABY LOCKED IN CAR Firefighters were called to help get a baby out of a locked car parked on Sumner’s Esplanade on Monday. Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade received the call at about 11.10am. However, when firefighters arrived, the car had been unlocked. A fire service spokesman said it was an accident and the baby’s father had arrived with the spare key for the vehicle before firefighters arrived. ARTS CENTRE CHAIRWOMAN Felicity Price is the new Arts Centre Trust Board chairwoman. She has replaced Jen Crawford. Ms Price, who is a strategic communications contractor and consultant, has been chairwoman on boards of The Court Theatre, Christchurch Symphony Orchestra and Christchurch Writers Festival. She was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to arts and business in 2009 and has authored eight novels and three works of non-fiction, including the John Britten biography, Dare to Dream.

ing heavily on local produce. “We wanted to do something completely different people haven’t seen before,” he said. With that in mind, he started creating fresh dishes daily out of whatever Mother Nature had to offer. Nearly five years on, Mr Sturla still relies on seasonal vegetables and fresh fish and meat to create his seasonal five, eight and 12-course dinners. “People like eating several courses, with several colours and textures over a longer period of time instead of just one big plate in one sitting,” he

explains. “I knew people disliked a lot of foods like seafood and mushrooms and I wondered how people could dislike something that tasted so good,” he said. “The moment you read something on a menu, you’ll decide whether you like it and if you want to eat it. The moment it’s on the plate you have a different appreciation of what you have. We play a little with people’s minds to show them that food they thought they didn’t like can be good. Trust me, I’m not going to serve you

bad food – I’m a chef.” Auckland-based restaurants The French Cafe, The Grove, Sidart, Kazuya, Cocoro, Merediths and Baduzzi also feature on La Liste.

District health board job cuts article LAST WEEK, The Star reported the Canterbury District Health Board may look at job cuts this year in a bid to balance its books. The article said the planned cut would take effect from July.

This was incorrect. The Star was using information from a PricewaterhouseCoopers report regarding the board’s finances. But The Star mistakenly thought the 2017 financial year

started in July and questioned board chairman Murray Cleverley on that basis. Mr Cleverley said he could not rule out job cuts but stated it was too early to say until the board had met to discuss the PwC report. The

SIGN OF THE KIWI RETURNS The Sign of the Kiwi will reopen on Monday after six years. The building at the top of Dyers Pass Rd was closed following the September 4, 2010, earthquake. It then suffered further damage on February 22, 2011. Before the building was closed, it operated as a cafe and shop. The cafe will reopen following $760,000 in strengthening work. The heritage building was built between 1916 and 1917 and has been strengthened to 67 per cent of the new building standard. RAPAKI PARKING BAN STALLS Plans to install yellow lines on Rapaki Rd have been put on hold by the city council. Following concerns from residents along the road, which is the main access to Rapaki Track, the city council proposed banning parking along it and part of Erewhon Tce. While two thirds of submitters supported the proposal, Vernon Tce residents feared they would lose off-street car parks and push the problem to surrounding streets if yellow lines were installed on Rapaki Rd. City council has now decided to put the plan on hold so it can look at how surrounding roads would be impacted.

City’s streets come „„ By Bridget Rutherford GET READY to laugh. The 24th World Buskers Festival hits the streets tonight with acts and performers from around the world descending on Christchurch for 10 days. This year’s headline act will be British comedian, actor and filmmaker, Nina Conti, who will perform her acclaimed act In Your Face.

The ventriloquist uses face masks to turn audience members into puppets. Conti has won Best Female TV Comic at the 2014 British Comedy Awards, the Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for best show and was nominated for a BAFTA for her documentary A Ventriloquist’s

Story: Her Master’s Voice. Festival director Melissa Haberfield said it took more than two years to get Conti to Christchurch because she was fully booked. Seven of her 10 shows were already sold out, she said. Conti will perform every night, from today until January 28, at 7.15pm, at Christ’s College.

Steel mesh lawsuit looms

„„ By Tom Doudney ABOUT 3000 Canterbury homeowners have been sent letters inviting them to join a class action lawsuit against three companies which allegedly supplied sub-standard steel mesh. Auckland firm Adina Thorn Lawyers has proposed taking the lawsuit against the companies which are also set to be prosecuted by the Commerce Commission this year under the Fair Trading Act. The steel mesh, alleged to be below the national building standard, is typically used in concrete slab foundations and driveways. The letter stated that if the companies were found guilty in the Commerce Commission’s prosecution they would face fines but this was “very unlikely” to deliver financial compensation to affected home owners. “Unless the owners of affected properties take legal action, they will likely face losses in terms of resale values, as well as possible complications with insurance claims in the event of an earthquake,” it said. The three companies were not named by the Commerce Commission but one, Steel & Tube,

SAFETY ISSUE: About 3000 Canterbury homeowners have received letters inviting them to take part in a class action lawsuit over sub-standard steel mesh allegedly being used in their homes.

chose to identify itself. Steel & Tube has said the commission’s decision in relation to itself was about the application of testing methodologies and mistaken use of a testing laboratories logo on test certificates, not the performance characteristics of its seismic mesh. Adina Thorn Lawyers senior associate Richard Hart (left) said homes which received the letters had been chosen based on having had a building consent issued during the four years that the non-complying mesh was being supplied. He acknowledged the firm did not know whether it had been used in any of the specific homes it sent letters to.

The 3000 was just a subset of potentially affected homes with the total number “too difficult to obtain at this stage,” Mr Hart said. “This is a potentially serious problem, we don’t want to alarm people but on the other hand it’s an opportunity for people to perhaps find out a bit more and find out whether or not [joining the lawsuit] is worthwhile.” Letters had been sent to new Auckland subdivisions as well but Mr Hart said Canterbury had the potential to be worse affected due to the possibility of future seismic activity in the region. Steel & Tube communications manager Tanya Katterns said Adina Thorn had not provided information to support its claims that resale values and insurance claims could be

affected. “We believe our seismic mesh ensures building safety,” she said. Last year Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment general manager building system performance Derek Baxter said he was not concerned that the mesh posed a safety risk for newly-built houses and was confident they would still comply with the Building Code. The Structural Engineering Society has also said homeowners should not be unnecessarily concerned about the steel mesh in their houses. The city council referred questions from The Star to the Commerce Commission. A spokeswoman for the commission said it did not wish to comment on the class action.

Tests show soil no cause for CTV building collapse •From page 1 “From the (Royal Commission of Inquiry) we know why this building collapsed, and who is responsible,” he said yesterday. He said the families had been waiting a long time for justice. “We know it’s a long process and it’s frustrating, but we just have to wait,” he said. The police investigation has taken two years, Maan Alkaisi and involved more than 100 interviews. A police report on the investigation was completed and given to the Christchurch Crown Solicitor for review in December. A Royal Commission of Inquiry into the building collapse in 2012 found there were inadequacies in the construction on the building, and it should not have been given a building permit. Jeanette Beaumont, whose son Matty died in the CTV building, said waiting had been difficult for the families, but she was glad the police investigation was thorough.

Ticket for The Boss fan

Concert opportunity for someone deserved „„ By Gabrielle Stuart AFTER HIS plans for a trip of a lifetime fell over, British Bruce Springsteen fan Paul McGuirk hopes to turn his own disappointment into someone else’s day. Mr McGuirk (left) planned to surprise his wife, Lynn, with a trip to Christchurch to see the Springsteen concert in February, to celebrate their 50th birthdays. But she had an operation earlier this month, which left her unable to fly for several weeks while she recovers. Mr McGuirk still plans to make the trip from their home in Lancashire alone, but was left with a spare ticket. He hopes to find someone deserving in Christchurch to donate it to. “I would like them to

be someone who has done something for others in the community, one of the scores of people across the world who put themselves out for others and make communities work for the better,” he said. Mrs McGuirk works as a nurse, so he said he would love to donate it to someone who worked in health or a similar field. They visited Christchurch with their children during a world trip in 2008, and he said they had been saddened to see the news of the earthquakes.

“My wife and I fell in love with the Canterbury area and the hospitality of its people. We always promised we would come back,” he said. Although Mrs McGuirk missed out on the trip, he said they planned to visit New Zealand again in the future, once she was fully recovered. The ticket is for the standing section at the concert, which is at AMI Stadium at 5pm on Tuesday, February 21. Tickets in that section are currently selling for $249 each.

Employment breach costs restaurant $25,000 „„ By Matthew Theunissen A CHRISTCHURCH Thai restaurant has been ordered to pay $25,000 for failing to comply with minimum employment standards. Bahn Thai Restaurant didn’t provide staff with written employment agreements, failed to keep holiday and leave records, and failed to keep time and wage records, according to an Employment Relations Authority decision. The Labour Inspectorate started investigating the business after a complaint from a former employee. The inspectorate visited the premises and identified a number of other employees whose minimum employment requirements were being breached. The owner claimed he had not been aware he was required to comply with minimum standards for temporary employees. He submitted to the ERA that he was not proficient in English and was ignorant of the law, asking that these be considered as mitigating circumstances. ERA member David Appleton disagreed.

“It is almost inconceivable that a businessman operating for 10 years in a major city of New Zealand genuinely did not become aware that his business was obliged to issue its employees with employment agreements, keep wage and time, and holiday and leave records,” he said. The ERA assessed the breaches amounted to a total of $187,000. However, it was clear that the business would not be able to meet this amount, and that it would be out of proportion to the gravity of the breaches. “When I stand back, and consider the breaches for which penalties can be legitimately sought, I consider that $25,000 is an appropriate penalty overall, as it combines effective and realistic punishment and deterrence on the one hand and ‘affordability’ on the other hand,” Appleton said. The inspectorate had also sought payment for staff who hadn’t received what they were owed. However, all outstanding payments had been made and the $25,000 was to be paid to the Crown. – NZ Herald

News CBHS fights liquor bid „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding ONE OF the city’s top schools is trying to stop a new liquor store from opening up near its gates. Christchurch Boys’ High School has opposed a controversial off-licence liquor application on Riccarton Rd. The school is one of the latest to oppose the liquor licence made by PM Liquors Ltd, which is proposing a liquor store to be situated on 76 Riccarton Rd, directly next to a Ministry of Social Development’s Work and Income New Zealand building. Christchurch Boys’ High School headmaster Nic Hill (left) said the school was concerned about the close proximity of the liquor store to the school and boarding house. The liquor store, to be known as The Liquor Shop Riccarton, would be located about 850m away from the school grounds. “We are doing it for Christchurch Boys’ High School but there are lots of students in that area. It is a thoroughfare used by students near the bus stop and the

boarding house,” Mr Hill said. It is one of 11 objections received by the Christchurch District Licensing Committee, including a petition of 15 signatories. Opposers of the application include the Riccarton Bush Kilmarnock Residents’ Association, Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton  and owners and tenants of the Straven Buildings located on 86 Riccarton Rd. Sub-

missions have also been made by the medical officer of health, Paula Williams, and Constable Adrienne Jones. Residents nearby raised concerns in October last year, saying there was already too many liquor stores in the area and it was “inappropriate” to place a liquor store next to Work and Income. A hearing will be held by the Christchurch District Licensing Committee on February 2, to be chaired by Grant Buchanan.

Police say club was hit twice on Monday „„ By Andrew King CCTV FOOTAGE has revealed the St Albans Shirley Club was broken into twice within 90 minutes on Monday. On Tuesday, police released the image of a man they want to interview in connection with an arson at the club, which happened shortly after 9.30am on Monday. But yesterday, when reviewing the footage, they found another man had entered the club just after 8am. The club was closed at the time. He is wanted in relation to money that was taken. Detective Constable Craig Watts said they had not ruled out the two crimes being linked. “It’s either an opportunist crime or they are known to each other, but at this stage, that is undetermined,” he said. The first offender spent about 30 minutes upstairs, police said,

before going to the bar area downstairs. Money was missing from the bar. About 20 minutes later after the first offender left, the second man entered the club. Soon after, a passerby noticed smoke coming from the building on Hills Rd and alerted nearby builders who called the Fire Service. Accelerant had been poured on a bookshelf and carpet and was set on fire, Detective Constable Watts said. Police are appealing for any sightings of the men. If you have information phone 363 7400, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Livingstone trumped over US election plan „„ By Bridget Rutherford CITY COUNCILLOR Glenn Livingstone thought he would witness history this week. He booked tickets to the United States as a surprise birthday present for his wife Anthea to see, what he thought, would be the inauguration of the first female president tomorrow, US time. However, things did not pan out like he expected them to. “We didn’t know it would be Trump.” He booked the flights months ago – before Donald Trump took out the presidential election in a shock result. “We thought we’d tie it in with the inauguration of what I thought would be the first woman US president, of course that turned out to be a bit of a blooper,” he said. “I took what I thought was a reasonable punt, turned out I was wrong. I think a lot of us didn’t see that coming.” The couple left on Sunday and would spent 12 days over there. They would visit Dallas first to

see Dealey Plaza, where president John F Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. Then they would head to New York for four days, Washington DC for four days to see Mr Trump’s inauguration. PROTEST •A group of women will march from Victoria Square to Cathedral Square on Saturday in opposition of Trump’s inauguration. •Women’s March on Washington will coincide with the main event in Washington DC. •The Christchurch event will begin at 10.30am, with those taking part hoping to send the message that women’s rights are human rights and all voices deserve to be heard.

Man saved from blaze „„ By Andrew King PETE BLACK was sound asleep as flames began to lick the outside of his upstairs bedroom – and if it wasn’t for a neighbour he may not be alive today to tell his story. The fire started at about 2am yesterday when a pile of cardboard and other rubbish was pushed into a corner of a carport at the back of the St John Charity Shop on Lincoln Rd and then set alight. Mr Black, who manages the shop and lives above it, said if he hadn’t been woken up by his neighbour, he would be “a goner”. “I came down and saw the flames . . . it’s my worse nightmare to be honest,” he said. Luckily for Mr Black the floor between him and the fire was made of concrete, which prevented the fire getting to the upstairs flat. “I haven’t slept since being woken up early this morning, it’s all a bit surreal,” he said. Neighbour John Wallace said he looked outside because he heard loud voices and noticed the flames. “I just tore over there and started trying to wake up Pete. It was pure luck, I just happened

to be in the right place at the right time,” he said. Addington senior station officer Gerald Wilson said when they arrived the flames were “very close” to cracking the windows and entering the flat. “He was so lucky to get out . . . we managed to stop it before it really got out of control, but it was close to getting in the flat,” he said. Appliances from Addington, Sockburn and Central fire stations battled the blaze for about an hour. Detective Constable Craig Watts said police will review surrounding CCTV footage

to try identify the offender or offenders. “It looks like an opportunist crime. The occupant was lucky to make it out,” he said. The building suffered minor smoke damage inside, while outside the fire melted most of the plastic on a van, destroyed the heat pumps and left the wall black. Mr Wilson said it was a timely reminder to all businesses to move bins and other flammable objects away from the side of buildings. “If we can get rid of the opportunity, then we can prevent some of these fires,” he said.

Harwood in tune with health for Debbie Harwood will perform with fellow When The Cat’s Away singers Annie Crummer and Margaret Urlich, as well as Sharon O’Neill at the Selwyn Sounds concert in March. She spoke to Tom Doudney about her latest endeavours DEBBIE HARWOOD has always been interested in helping people heal but soon she will be expressing that desire through a form other than music. The former When The Cats Away singer recently qualified as a hypnotherapist after completing a two-month course in San Francisco and is working on setting up her own practice this year. Come March 4 though, her focus will be on using her vocal talents to woo the crowd at Selwyn Sounds when she performs on a bill stacked with Kiwi rock royalty. Also playing will be Dragon, Mi-Sex, the Jordan Luck Band and Jason Kerrison, among others. Harwood said herself, Crummer, Urlich and O’Neill had strong chemistry which had been key to their success. “Seeing as we have been making music since the early 80s, and the 70s in Sharon’s situation, we have been right through

people’s lives with them as well,” she said. “I never ever, ever take that for granted, I will always get on stage with enormous respect for that, that those people have been through lots of different things, great things and sad things, with our music as a soundtrack to those things.” Harwood had been interested in hypnotherapy since undergoing it herself in her early 20s, when it helped her overcome asthma and other health problems which were affecting her singing. However, she only made the decision to train as a hypnotherapist early last year. “I love being able to help people make changes to core beliefs so I literally woke up at 8am in the morning with this feeling, by 10am that morning I had booked my flights and registered with the school in San Francisco and off I went,” she said. “I am quite impulsive and

ENERGY: Debbie Harwood is starting a new hypnotherapy practice but will be fully focused on music when she plays Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert in March. ​ when I get a strong feeling about something I will act on it.” Harwood has been plagued by health problems throughout her career and in 2009 had to seek more conventional medical help.

Seriously ill at the age of 49, she underwent open heart surgery at St George’s Hospital to fix a failed mitral valve and hole in her heart. “One of the funniest things

that has ever happened to me was when I woke up from the operation in ICU. I was very, very ill, and I looked at the bottom of my bed and my surgeon and ward doctor were there,” she said.

Major roadworks on the Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection Major roadworks will be carried out on the Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection from 7pm, Friday January 20 until 6am, Monday January 23. Motorists may experience delays of up to 20 minutes. People travelling to Christchurch International Airport should plan ahead and allow plenty of extra travel time. The work to reconstruct the road through the intersection is part of the State Highway 1 Russley Road Upgrade. The project is progressing well and is expected to be finished in 2018.

The work is weather dependent and may be postponed until the following weekend if required.

Lincoln concert event

“I was looking at the ward doctor and he had long hair and blue scrubs and his name tag said David Bowie – that was his actual name. I am pretty sure I said to him at some point: ‘I think your best work was Life on Mars, David’. He was a musician too.” Her health was now better than it had been for more than 20 years and felt she had received “a second go at life.” Harwood has just recorded a new song called Isolated which she hopes to release in the next two months. She plans on recording four more songs but is not expecting to put out a full album. She was looking forward to playing on the same bill with the other Selwyn Sounds artists, such as Dragon which she had a long association with. Former Dragon keyboardist Alan Mansfield now plays with Harwood, O’Neill, Crummer and Urlich, and Harwood had been good friends with another former Dragon keyboardist Paul Hewson. In fact Hewson’s death from a drug overdose in 1984, when he was 33, had a profound effect on her career. Having just left Dragon, Hewson was staying

with Harwood and her flatmate in Auckland at the time. “I cooked him his last dinner, fillet steak actually, and then he went out and the next thing I knew I had the police on my

doorstep in the morning, it was very devastating,” Harwood said. “I was 24 and my career had only just started, and so my very first single that I released in 1984 I dedicated to him. It was called If That Will Make you Happy and I won a music award the following year for that which was where the seed of When The Cat’s Away started because Margaret Urlich, Annie Crummer and I were at the music awards in 85.”

Waitangi’s a ‘circus’ – Gough City councillor Jamie Gough gives his views on Waitangi Day celebrations The prime minister is wrong when he says many New Zealanders cringe “a bit” at Waitangi. I think they cringe a lot. There’s been the metaphorical and literal mud-slinging; it even graduated to giant sex-toy-slinging last year (à la Steven Joyce). Yes, nothing quite demonstrates dignity and decorum like a flying dildo to the face of a minister of the Crown. The Harawira ‘pack’ and their not so merry band turn it into a classless circus – not that I’d expect anything less. I won’t even refer to them as a whānau, as I don’t believe they’re representative of family-values, nor Māori, in the slightest. It beggared belief for me when Hone Harawira stated he wouldn’t be comfortable if one of his seven children dated a Pākehā. I couldn’t care

allow the leader of our nation the opportunity to speak. If it were up to me, I would take the ceremony away from Waitangi altogether. It should be a privilege, not a right. Many years ago, the late Paul Holmes said: “Waitangi Day produced its usual hatred, rudeness and violence against a clearly elected prime minister from a group of hateful, hate-fuelled weirdos who seem to exist in a perfect world of benefit provision.” It sure looks like while some things change, most stay the same. Unfortunately, you could safely bet that quote would be just as applicable on any given year. •Email your views on Gough’s column to barry@ starmedia.kiwi

CRINGE-WORTHY?: City councillor Jamie Gough says Prime Minister Bill English deserves respect and should have been given the opportunity to officially speak at Waitangi.

less if a son or daughter of mine wanted to date someone with Māori ancestry, and surely most level-headed New Zealanders would share my stance. Decency and integrity may be qualities one would hope your child’s partner of choice possesses; but ethnicity? I find that frankly offensive. With

that sort of attitude feeding into the ranks at Waitangi, how on earth could we ever expect progress to be made? The office of the prime minister deserves respect irrespective of political leanings or past baggage, so good on Bill English for showing the gumption to decline attendance given they refused to

Busy year expected THIS YEAR will be another busy one with regeneration projects around Christchurch finishing or reaching major milestones. February 22 will mark the sixth anniversary of the devastating 2011 earthquake. A national service will be held at the Canterbury Earthquake Memorial on Oxford Tce, on the banks of the Avon River. Having the memorial completed in time for the anniversary, including the inscription of the earthquake victims’ names on the marble wall, will make for a poignant time of remembrance and I want to thank all those who worked on this important project. In the middle of the year, main construction works on the Convention Centre will begin. Around that time the Justice and Emergency Services Precinct will be fully operational and be home to about 1100 staff, while receiving around 900 visitors a day. Following on from the Kaikoura earthquake, which saw three urgent bills passed unanimously to improve response and recovery operations, Civil Defence will this year focus on more public

education and developing a national alerting system. THe year is well under way in the defence portfolio. On Monday, I met with the Defence Minister from Singapore, in Waiouru, to discuss the strong defence relationship between our two nations. We also observed Exercise Thunder Warrior, an annual Singaporean live firing training exercise held here in New Zealand. I believe we have a lot to be optimistic about in 2017. New Zealand is in great shape,

with strong economic growth predicted for this year and unemployment at 4.9 per cent. This is back down to levels we last saw before the 2009 Global Financial Crisis – a fantastic development for New Zealand both economically and socially. I hope everyone managed to have some time off with friends and family and is starting the year with renewed energy – it’s going to be a big one.

We said: A study of CCTV footage at the hospital’s emergency department during the February 22, 2011, earthquake, found that instead of following the drop, cover, hold advice, people tried to help others around them. Nurses on duty were also more likely to immediately think of their patients, rather than trying to stay safe themselves, the study showed “some acts we saw were extremely selfless, like people covering patients with their own bodies” You said: Rachael Hanson – We’re so quick to criticise nurses, caregivers and doctors. It’s about time we say thank you and well done. When everyone else ran home to check on their families, these people turned up to work, even off the clock, to help. Well done to them. I appreciated you then and still now. Even if no one else does. Christine Schuler – In the open plan call centre where I

was working during the Feb quake, most of us did dive under our desks and held on until the shaking stopped. Where there were staff members who needed assistance, the people nearby tended to try to help them instead of worrying about themselves. Carol Rota – I was at work that day at a rest home and hospital. I can remember, as a cleaner, helping a caregiver to get a patient out of bed to get her out of harms way when we had a big shake. We thought of that lady and covered her with our bodies. No thought of us just to keep her safe – that’s just how it was then. CJ Mills – It was “survival tactics 101” . . . which ever scenario. •Continued on page 18

Time to settle EQC claims WHAT WILL 2017 mean for you? Each of us will have a different answer to this question. For me, it’s election year so I know that to be a sure sign it’s going to be incredibly busy. But the question I have been mulling over during my time off is what will 2017 mean for Christchurch and Canterbury? For me, there are three areas we need to fix this year so that people can move on with their lives and feel positively about their and their family’s futures. First, we must finally see all EQC and insurance claims settled and a credible plan finally delivered by the Government for fixing the botched repairs. We simply can’t leave thousands of people in limbo and unable to get on with their lives. Fixing people’s homes is critical to this. Second, I want to see an honest discussion held about the mental health needs in our region. We know that the last six years has been extremely tough for many Cantabrians and our district health board is doing its best with a system that is at breaking point.

Film rekindles war memories „„ By Bridget Rutherford WHEN THE McKee brothers went to fight in World War 1, they left behind the family farm. Greg, Barney, Cornelius and Joseph joined the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Regiment to serve in Jerusalem and Damascus. All four returned home. They came from Waihaorunga, a farm in South Canterbury. When the call came for horsemen to join the mounted rifles all four enlisted. The youngest, 17-year-old Joseph, lied about his age so he could go. He wanted to see the world. His son, Russell, has kept a collection of photos Joseph took while he was over there. Last week the memories were rekindled when Russell’s sister, Colleen Fuller, saw an article in The Star about a plan to make a film, The Cold Footed Mounts, about the World War 1 mounted rifles regiments. The photos feature some of the men who were serving in the mounted rifles, the Suez Canal, and the camels they rode on. Russell McKee, 86, said the four brothers were all in the same regiment, but once they

HOME: The McKee brothers before they went away to fight in the same regiment in Jerusalem and Damascus.

FAMILY HISTORY: Russell McKee has a collection of his father’s photos that he took while serving in World War 1 in the mounted rifles regiments. ​ went over there many rode camels rather than horses. Their older brother, Owen McKee, did not join the army. He was originally a Catholic Priest, before joining a communist group in Christchurch, Russell McKee said. The four brothers were affected by poison gas and had to go to hospital before being sent back to

New Zealand, he said. “He [Joseph] never spoke about the war. On Anzac Day he would go away and cry.” When the brothers returned, the farm had gone bankrupt, he said. So they started a roading construction business called British Pavements Ltd. They built it up and sold it to Isaac Construction, he said.

HISTORIC: A photo Joseph McKee took of the Suez Canal.

Like his father, Russell McKee went to enlist in the army to serve in World War 2, however, he was colour blind and was not allowed. He ended up becoming a city council traffic engineer and helped design the one-way street system in the central city. But his cousins, Waimate’s Alex and Jim Sheddan, went

over. The late Jim Sheddan became a squadron leader and flew Spitfires, Typhoons and Tempests. Alex Sheddan was killed on his first operation. Russell McKee said it was great a movie was being made about the mounted rifles regiments because we needed to know our history.

Champion jockey hangs up his

With more than 2500 wins, retiring jockey David Walsh is one of New Zealand’s most successful riders. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about eating pizza off the Cox Plate, pulling the fingers at a rude punter and why a small horse with wonky eyes and funny feet was one of his favourites So after more than 41 years you’ve decided to retire, why? I haven’t been that well for the last three to four years, I’ve had diverticulitis. Prior to going to Mauritius in August, I had the first of a two-part operation and I had the second just before Christmas. I’ve had a fantastic run; I’ve never worked a day in my life. With my health issues, diverticulitis has been caused by continuous wasting over time, losing weight and being in the sauna. I’ve been losing weight for every race day for 30-odd-plus years, and for me that was the parcel. Maybe that’s had an effect on me long term, and maybe the body’s just saying enough’s enough. I’m at an age, 57, where I can still turn my hand to something else. What’s next? There’s nothing in place. I’d like to think there’s something for me in racing. I applied for a

steward’s job (in charge of maintaining the integrity of race day operations) midway through last year, but in the end, there wasn’t a position available. That’s a possibility for the future. Maybe TV or media work, or maybe even working with apprentices. When did it all begin? I knocked on Jim Lalor’s door (Ashburton trainer), at 13. I didn’t know him from a bar of soap and I said I want to be a jockey. He probably thought to himself, here’s another little short arse so-and-so, he’ll last five minutes. But I started working and never left. This was when I was at school; I’d bike to work, go to school, then bike back to work. I had my first ride when I was 15 in the November and I left school at the end of that year. Did you come from a racing family? No one in my family had anything to do with horses, but my

saddle after life in the fast lane In my first year, I rode four winners. In the second, I had 18 winners. The next year, I rode 40-something. Each year I put on about 4kg and, by the time I was 18, I was about 51kg. Tell me about your first race. It was a horse called Darnley Express at Riccarton. It was the third day of the New Zealand Cup meeting in 1974. I was a bit anxious. I remember thinking after, right, that’s the first one out of the way and that was a big step up. There were 22 runners and I beat seven home. What about your first win? It was in Timaru in my fifth ride on a horse called Three Sevens. It was a distance race and I didn’t really know what I was doing. The horse was a natural back runner and I just sat there but the gaps just kept coming – I got up and won right on the finish. It was just an utter fluke. Once you got a taste of it, you wanted to win more. You’re known for being a bit of a front runner. People think that. I wouldn’t say I liked to get out in front, it just happened a lot. Jim Lalor’s horses raced quite handy. That’s how he trained them and that’s

how I learned to ride. A lot of trainers in the North Island didn’t like their horses leading, but for some reason horses ran for me. I was never scared to go forward if the pace was too slow – no matter what my instructions were. If you’re going too slow, do something about it. An even speed is 12 to the

furlong. If they start going 13, it’s too slow. Speaking of front running, was winning the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley, Melbourne, a highlight of your career? Yes, it’s one of the big three races in Australia. To win one of those is unbelievable. It was in 1994 and I was riding Solvit.

Did you have instructions from trainer Moira Murdoch? No, she never gave me any instructions because he’d just about lead every time. He was a free running horse and normally fast out of the gates. I rode him 31 times from March 6, 1993, until he retired on August 24, 1996 and had eight wins on him. We raced in the Cox Plate the year before and got second. Did the race pan out like you expected? Well actually, it was the first time he had made a slightly slow beginning. He didn’t lead until after the 1600m, he sort of dawdled a little and then worked his way to the front. How did you celebrate the win? We were like stunned mullets. We went back to the hotel and I sat there on the bed and watched three different news channels and each highlighted the Cox Plate. We got invited to a pizza place over Mornington way, and we ended up eating pizza off the Cox Plate. We went home after that because we were knackered. What was the jockey’s percentage of that race? He [Solvit] won $2,190,265 so

it was about $60,000. How did it rate with Mr Lomondy’s win in the Caulfield Cup? It was a completely different feeling. In the Caulfield Cup, it was a dreary sort of a day and afterwards the media gravitated to the second horse because he was one of the favourites for the Melbourne Cup. Lomondy was quite an outsider and to most people it was a bit of a surprise. What goes through your mind when you’re in the starting gates? It depends on the race and the type of horse you’re on. The biggest thing is try to relax and make sure your horse is relaxed. Horses naturally jump out; you don’t need to force them to get out. Where’s your favourite track? I don’t have un-favourite tracks because you get psyched out. The best track to ride a race on is Trentham, in Wellington, because you can ride anywhere. Ellerslie is one of my favourites because of the atmosphere. And Riccarton is great as well, it’s the biggest in the country. •Turn to page 24

Record-setting jockey rides into retirement •From page 23 It didn’t matter if it was big or small, wet or dry, there were races to be won, and you had to figure out a way to win them. The pretty or best rides don’t always win the race. Sometimes you got to ride them ugly. What’s been the toughest part of your career? I had a couple of suspensions for not giving horses every chance. That was pretty tough to take. In one case, the horse was extremely unlucky and the other was, when I look back, a lazy ride. Maybe I could have done a bit better but it was certainly no intent not to try. One suspension was six weeks and the other four months. Have you had many injuries? I’ve had numerous fractures and dislocations and I had an operation on the ligaments in my knee. But when I was young I did judo, I went to the Canterbury champs for it. They teach you to fall, and when I started riding it was good because I wasn’t scared to fall. When you fall off a horse, you’ve just got to try and relax. If you tense up, something’s going to break. Any embarrassing moments? I’ve been abused a few times by

punters. They’d say “you bloody mug Walsh, hang up ya boots.” This was 35-odd years ago because they’d lost their money. I gave one of them the fingers one day, probably shouldn’t have. Lucky the stewards didn’t see or I might have been in trouble. Have you had favourite horses? Many. Courier Bay was certainly one of my favourites, a big powerful sprinting horse and I won 13 races on him. Solvit was a great horse. A horse I had a soft spot for was The Varmint. I ended up winning 11 on him.

He was a little horse, had wonky eyes and funny feet but he just tried so hard. Has making weight been hard for you? I was never a natural lightweight. My weight settled at 53kg normally in the week. I’d be losing 2kg in the sauna, sometimes more, before a Saturday race. I’m a bit different because I don’t weigh myself. The more you weigh yourself the heavier you get. I only ever weighed myself after I’d sweated myself on a race day. I tried to eat as normal as possible. I’d have a

yoghurt or a piece of fruit for breakfast, not much for lunch, then have a decent meal at night. When did you stop growing? At about 19. I’m 5ft 2in (1.57m). My mum’s small and my brothers aren’t that much bigger than me. I was two months premature, that’s possibly why I was the runt of the litter. And what does your wife Julie do? She is the accounts manager at Canterbury Jockey Club. She can ride, she grew up with ponies. We’ve been married for 24 years.

How did you two meet? Her sister and brother-in-law were trainers in Palmerston North. I went around there for dinner one night and it turned out they were checking me out to see what I was like. To be fair, I was pretty aggressive in those days, I had a passion to win and lot of people thought I was a grumpy bastard, and I probably was. But away from race day, I was a different person. I must say I have mellowed a lot (laughs). They asked if I would take a present over for Jules, and it was just a way of getting us to meet. You’ve ridden more winners than any other jockey in New Zealand history, how does it feel to leave a legacy like that? I’m pretty proud of it really. It’s not something you ever set out to do. I had a goal if I could ride a winner a week on average we were staying in the game for Lance’s (O’Sullivan) record. What do you like to do in your spare time? I played a lot of tennis until my knee started giving me a hard time. I play a bit of golf and in the last four years I’ve done a lot of fishing.

Congratulations! Today’s winning question came from Caroline

QUESTION I like the bunched look of lavender and recently saw some pink rather than the purple ones. We are about to buy a house soon and wanted to know if they were easy to find and grow? ANSWER Pink lavenders are usually

available at major garden centres. If not then you can either place an order or check online availability from a lavender specialist.

Grow your lavender in a warm, sunny spot in the garden that has very good air movement. Cultural requirements of the pink lavender are the same as for all lavenders. As Mediterranean plants, they prefer a dry, friable, sandy soil which is free draining. To help achieve this you may want to mound the soil where you are planting the lavenders. Also, add plenty of Daltons Compost when planting, as this will also help with drainage. Plants should be pruned immediately after they have finished flowering to extend their lifespan. Lavender is also ideal for bringing bees into the garden.

We have the ultimate Daltons Garden Mulch & Grow pack to giveaway. Each pack is valued at $100 and contains: 3 x Daltons Mulch and Grow 2 x Besgrow Coir Mulch 2 x Daltons Nugget Bark PLUS a pair of comfortable, versatile Red Back gardening gloves from Omni Products (www.omniproducts.co.nz)

Even if you’re the most hands off gardener, the most important task to do during the summer months is apply mulch around plants, especially those in pots. Mulching is vital in maintaining a healthy garden and hinders water evaporation - keeping moisture in the soil. This is particularly important on exceptionally hot or windy days and helps prevent plants from wilting. Always create a clean slate and remove all weeds before applying your mulch.

Put in a plan if you go on holiday IF YOU are spending the last two weeks of the school holidays away from your garden, neglecting it can lead to problems. However, with careful planning, these problems can be reduced if not avoided. Firstly, try not having your vege garden ‘peaking’ at this time, this may mean not planting anything new until you return from holiday or planting short growing crops now which you can harvest before heading away. Mulch your garden and potted plants with pea straw or crushed bark. It’s vital in maintaining a healthy garden and hinders water evaporation, keeping the moisture in the soil. As a guide, a good layer of

mulch should be applied approximately 50-100mm thick around plants. Watering is an essential part of a healthy gardening over the summer months. If you have an irrigation system, install a timer or ask a helpful neighbour to water your garden while you are away. Don’t forget about your indoor plants as they can suffer as temperatures inside intensify. If necessary, reposition your plants away from very sunny windows. There are watering solutions for indoor plants such as drip spikes or water globes. Simply screw the drip spikes onto a plastic water bottle and place it into the soil. It will release

water to the plant. Have a good look in garden stores or online as to what is available. Alternatively, you can place plants in the bathtub with about 3-5cm of water (depending on type of plant) which will keep them going for around two weeks. Some top tips when it comes to watering you garden throughout summer are: • With many plants (trees and shrubs particularly), if they are not watered well and regularly over the hotter summer months, they will stop growing. If you maintain a consistent regime then you can expect excellent results with continued growth through the hot summer months.

• Be regular when watering your garden. Little and often is best, avoiding the hottest part of the day when plants are heat stressed. Once a day in the early morning or evening up to three times a week should be plenty. • Some plants such as roses do require deep watering to encourage deep root development. So apply extra water to those plant types in the early part of the day. Avoid getting foliage wet as this can promote the spread of disease on plants like tomatoes and roses. Aim for the root zone instead. •Water until it begins to puddle on top of the soil which means the soil has reached its water holding capacity.

ESSENTIAL: Water your vege patch through a timer. Early morning or late evening are the best times to irrigate.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

The Star

New future-focussed Health promotion career changes lives health and wellbeing qualification Ara Institute of Canterbury’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Physical Activity and Health Promotion offers students the chance to change lives. Recent graduate Abby Wilson is working as a Physical Health Advisor for Sport Canterbury, supporting patients with a range of conditions to become more active to benefit their health and wellbeing. She says that connecting with people in the community and seeing them create change in their lives is very fulfilling. “It’s great when you meet people who want to change and you know that you have the ability to help them transform their approach to being active. Seeing them become independently active and continue with a healthier lifestyle is amazing.” During her degree, Abby completed placements with Falls Prevention and the Canterbury District Health Board. She says that the opportunity to work in the local community and build networks was invaluable. “The placements are the best part of the degree. You spend about 130 hours in second and third year working and you definitely feel ready to go out and get a job when you finish. I use the majority of what I learned in my degree every single day.” Students explore foundation topics in their first year and

then focus on the physical activity and health promotion specialisation for the remainder of their study. Graduates are prepared to enter a wide range of roles in the sports, health and wellness sectors. Abby says that the degree has given her options. She has already experienced the diversity the industry has to offer, including working in Abu Dhabi as a personal trainer immediately after graduating. “The degree offers so many opportunities, which means you get to go out and do different things throughout your career.” The Bachelor of Applied Science (Physical Activity and Health Promotion) is a three year programme and is offered at Ara in Christchurch. Part-time study options are also available.

Ara Institute of Canterbury’s new Certificate in Health and Wellbeing will prepare students for the diverse environments and roles of the future. Human Services Manager Deirdre Richardson says that the Level 4 qualification will give students a solid foundation for employment, professional development, or to progress into a degree. “Students will learn about the latest factors that are driving the constantly-evolving health and wellbeing sector, and develop a framework of knowledge that they can apply to different situations,” she says. Enrolments are now open for the one year programme, which will commence in February 2017 at the Institute’s Christchurch and Timaru campuses. Three specialisations are available: Social Services, Mental Health and Addiction Support, and a Community Facilitation specialisation that could lead to roles including disability support and diversional therapy. The new programme was developed after extensive consultation with industry and has a strong work-integrated learning focus. 50 credits are linked to a 200-hour practical placement in the workforce, overseen by the expert tutors at Ara. Students from all specialisations will complete 70 credits in core courses that will prepare them to work with a wide range of

people, using up-to-the-minute practices. Richardson says that the programme will also provide students with valuable opportunities to learn from others who are working in different areas or that have personal experience in their chosen specialisation. “It will encourage students to learn about roles outside where they undertake their placement, exposing them to the broad scope of services and practices in the industry.” The programme has been designed to be as accessible as possible for students. It will be held during school hours on just two days of the week and will follow the school calendar year. Part-time study options are available and Ara has a comprehensive range of support services to ensure a smooth transition into study. To find out more, contact 0800 24 24 76 or visit www.ara.ac.nz

School preparation With Christmas and New Year’s celebrations now a distant memory and summer holidays drawing to a close its time to start preparing for the year ahead and getting your kids organised for school. If your little ones are starting a new school you’II be getting them measured up for their new school uniform or making a trip to the book shop to stock their backpacks. New timetables and routines are best set in place in the couple of weeks leading up introduce earlier bedtimes and gradually wake the kids earlier each morning to ease them back into a healthy sleep wake cycle.

Serving meals at home which are in line with what the school timetable dictates is also a good way to get your kids back into the rituals schools demand and helps accustom the little ones adapt before the school year begins. Setting up a calendar in a central location in the household will make sure each family member is on the same page when it comes to carpooling and extracurricular activities.

South New Brighton School’s Small School - Big Reputation Got Talent St Albans Catholic School is a small school with a big educational reputation. Located at 49 Rutland Street, this Year 0-6 co-educational integrated school has a maximum roll of 110.

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 hard-working office staff a break.

Enrolments for 2017 are welcome, with just a few spaces left! “There is a great joy in being part of a small school family” says Principal Mrs Annette Sjoberg. “Our dedicated staff know our students very well and actively respond to their interests, strengths and needs. Everyone is visible in our school!” Dance Crew, from left to right: Morgan Bailey, Ella Timbrell, Molly Chalmers and Chloe Timbrell.

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.

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 69 of our Year 5-8 students gave up their Knock Life” from the musical Annie, morning teas and lunchtimes to audition and they won a $10 subway voucher (a for their place in the Semi Finals. special thanks to Subway Ferrymead There were Solo and Group categories for donating these) and Miss Gill, our of Singing, Dance, Entertainment and Deputy Principal and organiser of Instrumental.

During 2016 we hosted a team from ERO. An excerpt from their report states, “The children learn in an environment which clearly promotes their sense of well-being, and helps them to focus consistently on their learning. A strong sense of community exists within the

school. The curriculum successfully reflects the emphasis the school places on learner qualities and virtues. Children are provided with a wide range of learning opportunities including cultural and environmental studies. They place appropriate emphasis on effectively engaging children and making learning enjoyable.”

We look forward to 2017 with great anticipation. Along with ten Christchurch primary and secondary schools we belong to the Catholic Schools Community of Learning. There is already a great spirit of co-operation and collaboration within this group. The intention is to work together to raise student achievement across the schools, with a particular focus on Mathematics, Writing and Science. As is said: Watch this Space!

High standards of behaviour are maintained and our children are well known for being respectful, polite and pleasant. Our children choose to come here seeing something about our school that appeals to them, and I believe our reputation is second to none.

Transforming the face of education in the East Haeata Community Campus will open its doors for the first time in Term One of 2017. The purpose-built school for students from Years 1-13 will be located on the former Aranui High site and is set to transform education in the East of Christchurch. At Haeata our approach to learning is different. We believe that every student will be motivated or inspired by something – we just have to find out what it is and tap into their strengths. Haeata’s personalised learning environment will provide meaningful experiences that challenge, motivate and inspire. Our students will have the chance to meet with and learn from industry, cultural and community leaders, and not be constrained by the four walls of a classroom.

Excitement high at Avonside A fresh look for Shirley Girls’ High School Boys’ High School 2017 will be a year of progress for the Avonside Girls’ High School whanau.

of achievement unless you have a supportive atmosphere.”

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.

Students are also looking forward to increased access to digital technology with the BYOD scheme rolling out across the Year 9 cohort, with the view to having full BYOD across the school by 2019.

Principal Sue Hume says the new system will see each girl with the same whanau group teacher for her five years at school.

“Technological devices are just a tool for learning but they do unlock a whole new way of engaging students with their learning. It is also important our girls have the very best IT skills for further study and future employment opportunities.”

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.

“This model gives students the opportunity to bond with one teacher and have her own family within the Avonside community. The classes will have an hour each week together – that will be an important time to ensure that each student is happy and progressing within our school environment.” 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

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.

Christchurch Girls High School

2017 edition

Welcome to Christchurch Boys’ High School Altiora Peto – I Seek Higher Things Welcome to Christchurch Boys’ High School. This is a great place to learn and we have a history of over 130 years of educating boys to be fine young men. We have high expectations of our boys and strong relationships with them.

At Christchurch Girls’ High School we believe each girl should be encouraged and guided to be all she is capable of becoming. We want her to be aware of the myriad of possibilities that exist so that she can become confident, resilient and skilled; a young woman who stands proud and tall, in any context, who not only has a voice but something to say and who is able, to use the business metaphor, take a seat at any table she chooses. We believe we must educate, nurture and inspire young women. We wish to challenge our students to be discerning critical and creative thinkers, who are comfortable with the concepts of hard work and service. By providing a wide range of opportunities, both inside and

outside the classroom, we want our students to mature as individuals. The Christchurch Girls’ High School vision ensures our young women appreciate the rich heritage of tradition, recognise the necessity of innovation and understand that excellence should be a part of all that they do. Young women who realise that “excellence is not an act but a habit.” We want a Christchurch Girls’ High graduate to remain open to possibility and seize opportunity so that her future is not predetermined by others. Instead, we want her to have the skills, qualifications and experiences that allow her the freedom to create her own destiny.

Whaia te iti kahurangi. Ki te tuohu koe me maunga teitei. Nic Hill, Headmaster

Our rich history includes Old Boys, who have made their mark in the worlds of the military, the arts and culture, commerce, law, community service and sport. We have close ties with our very supportive and active community, and we are proud of our place in New Zealand education. Our success in academic, sporting and cultural fields is due to a desire to make a difference to all of our young men’s achievement. The staff of Christchurch

school

St Bede’s on academic surge St Bede’s enters the new school year on a high after unprecedented academic success in 2016. Eighteen St Bede’s students have been offered 29 awards from universities around the country. This is the largest number of offers ever made to the school.

Welcome to the new school year; and a special welcome to all new students, families and staff members who start their association with the Burnside community in 2017. I look forward to meeting you all as the year progresses. I want all people at Burnside to feel that they are part of something bigger than themselves; and for the school to be a place that allows students and staff to thrive, be challenged, and become high performers. I want a culture where “excellence is not an act, but a habit” … a culture of high performance. We offer a wide range of opportunities through quality learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom. We aim to engage, challenge and support you to improve your all-round achievement and your personal and interpersonal skills; all within a culture based on personal excellence and care for others. It is this culture that underpins Burnside’s success. Our school motto - Recte sic dirige

cursum - Along this path direct your journey correctly is linked to the historical significance of the cabbage trees that stand so proudly on our grounds. They are a landmark in the local landscape and have been used for centuries as a guiding point. And to the students, I hope you will feel guided through Burnside High School that you will attain the qualifications you are capable of and that you need, and that you develop the personal qualities and confidence to choose the right pathways in life. Above all else……enjoy your “cabbage tree years”.

Two of last year’s seniors, Ben Mattingly and Justin Lee, received a prestigious University of Otago scholarship worth $45,000.

Phil Holstein, Principal

Leaders in Learning

Another student, Oliver Davidson, was offered the University of Otago Performance Entrance Scholarship valued at $16,000 over three years.

Among the offers to St Bede’s students, hearing impaired high achiever, Jack Dixon, was awarded $35,000 from two scholarships for tertiary study.

Oliver had roles in several professional productions around the city in 2016, including Evita, Hairspray and Mamma Mia.

“We are delighted with the achievements of the past year. It’s a credit to the boys and the staff and we hope to only build on that excellence in 2017.”

Ben Mattingly.

Mairehau High School

Throughout 2015 and 2016, our fantastic Year 9 cohorts have been on a learning adventure exploring projectbased learning during 'Flexible Learning Time' or 'FLT' for short. For three periods a week our students have self-selected, planned, implemented and reflected on some really interesting, rich and fruitful projects and, as a result, had some amazing cross-curricular and authentic learning experiences! As of Term 4, this exciting learning model is now part of both our Year 9 and 10 curriculum. For their final project this year, our Year 9 and 10 students were challenged to complete a project within the theme of being selfless. The very week that this project was due to commence, the North Canterbury earthquakes hit.

As a community that was severely impacted by the Christchurch earthquakes, our students felt an immense amount of empathy toward those affected in Kaikoura and Waiau. Students and staff worked together to weave the amazing ideas of our students into a common thread, and our final project was established. It was decided to hold an ‘All Stars Charity Basketball Game & Fete’ at school, with our wonderful, selfless students organising and running the whole event, and making food products, goods and crafts to sell. We were lucky enough to have some local sports stars from the codes of rugby, rugby league, cricket and basketball join us for the friendly match. The school is immensely proud of the efforts of our students and staff, as this

Their team of five builders has 90 years of collective experience in the industry, with owners Johnnie and Amanda directly involved in the management of every project. “We will take on the jobs that are outside the box – nothing is too hard,” say Amanda, who meets all new clients with Johnnie to talk over their specific building situation. “Once we start work on the job our client’s hardest decision should just be choosing the paint colour.” Clear and honest communication is integral to their business, with all work completed to a very high standard that will last over time. From a new garage floor that is complicated due to land conditions, an

Fashion

Bringing the doll house to life „„ By Annabelle Dick NOT MANY people can claim Playboy bunnies have worn their clothing – but 32-year-old St Martins designer Sophia Lee can. Ms Lee is the face behind Living Dolls, a company consisting of clothing, lingerie, make up and couture furniture. Her dress-up style clothing has had so much success it’s been worn on the New Zealand television show Outrageous Fortune and by Playboy bunnies at the infamous Playboy Mansion. Now she’s preparing to open her first ever store Living Dolls Emporium in Christchurch. What started out as a Barbie-inspired fashion line, has turned into a way of living for Ms Lee and her ‘dolls’. “Living Dolls has grown into a lifestyle brand. It’s not just the runway shows with wings, glitter and candy anymore. It’s turned into a company where I have various brands and product lines so I thought why not open the doors?” she said. Ms Lee is working to open her Waltham-based emporium which will include her own lines; Living Dolls

tique Furniture & Decor. There’s a common theme throughout Ms Lee’s products in that they’re all costumelike, novelty pieces you’d expect to find in Barbie’s dream house. Ms Lee, who now has a collection of 200 Barbie dolls, has been inspired by the doll scene ever since she introduced to it as a child. “It started when I was very young. I was a bit weird and I didn’t have many friends so I’d play with my Barbie dolls alone and would re-do all their make up and make all their outfits,” she said. “Barbie became my best friend so when I started fashion at Design & Arts College it was like I was playing Barbie but with a model. I was heavily inspired by as Barbie as a

kid and never really grew out of it,” she said. Most of her lingerie sets are custom couture pieces that require hand-crafting, detailing, and boning – work that takes a steady hand and a lot of patience. That has also inspired her to eventually start her own fashion course. “With couture you’re working with plume, lace and a lot of wire and it’s really fiddly. Because of that I’m looking to develop a design programme for emerging fashion designers as I’ve been wanting to grow by brand but I’ve struggled to find people that have the skill set to make couture pieces,” Ms Lee said. •Living Dolls Emporium opens on February 18 at 2/369 Wilsons Rd.

Director role for veteran actor

47

In Brief

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LONG-TIME Riccarton Players member Alistair Bean has done everything in theatre from performing in England to working as a extra on TVNZ’s comedy series of McPhail and Gadsby. Now, after acting in Riccarton Players shows for more than 30 years, Bean, 53, will debut as a director. The theatre group will start the year with a “thrill” bringing Ted Tiller’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula back from the dead. “I did this show in Invercargill in 1997 and it is written that well that I thought if I had the opportunity to direct, this is the show I wanted to do,” he said. Bean first became involved with the Riccarton Players 31 years ago with the Riccarton Players’ 25th Anniversary production in 1985 of play The Miracle Worker. With aspirations to make performing a full-time career in his early 20s, Bean first gave it crack in Britain. He was going to perform in a Christmas pantomime in Southend, London for a year but was soon told the show was only professional for seven weeks.

LIFE IN THE ARTS: Alistair Bean has been acting for more than 30 years. In 1984 (left) he was a member of street gang the Jets for the Christchurch Operatic Society’s production of Westside Story in 1984. Now he will debut as a director with the Riccarton Players in the production of Count Dracula. (Right) – Rehearsals for the show.

“I was only 23 at the time and a little bit young in the ways of the world so it all became a bit intimidating so I went home,” he said. But determined to continue with the arts as well as delve into a career in finance, Mr Bean performed with numerous theatre companies in the city including Canterbury Children’s Theatre and The Christchurch Operatic Society – now known as Showbiz Christchurch. He now has his own business

Alistair Bean & Assoc’s Financial Services Ltd based in St Albans. He said his most memorable performance was a matinee show of Les Miserables at the Isaac Theatre Royal in 1994 when a 6.7 earthquake struck Arthur’s Pass. “We had a revolver on stage and thought these were the best special effects we have ever had,” he said. He said the whole theatre was evacuated and the performers were out on the street in their make up. “The old chandelier in the theatre was swinging a hundred and eighty degrees...we had 400 stage lights above us and any of them could have come down but none of them did fortunately,”

he said. One of his other memorable shows was working with New Zealand comedians David McPhail and Jon Gadsby on their political satire show, where he was everything from a marching girl to an All Black. “I think the only thing that hinders a lot of talent in New Zealand is our lack of population to pay a living professional wage, otherwise would have many more people choosing it as an occupation,” he said. •Count Dracula will run through to January 28 at the Open Stage Theatre, 510 Hagley Ave. To book tickets phone 338 4699 or go to www.riccartonplayers.co.nz

The Court Theatre’s summer production of Jack and the Beanstalk brings to life all the beloved characters of the original tale – the daring and adventurous Jack, his best friend Daisy the Cow, and of course Blunderbore the hungry giant. The show will run to January 28. It will have a relaxed performance on January 28 to accommodate children with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication and learning disabilities. For more information go to https:// courttheatre.org.nz/show/jackand-the-beanstalk/ VOICES CO AUDITIONS The city’s only contemporary a cappella academy is holding auditions for performers to join their 2017 programme. The academy is interested in finding male voices and beat boxers. This year the academy will have an open class for performers aged 16+ as well as vocal squads. Audition dates are January 28, to January 31. To book go to www.voicesco. nz/auditions

Stroll around in a Hong Kong stopover „„ By Mike Yardley GAZING OUT across the azure hues of Victoria Harbour from the Four Seasons Hong Kong, the hotel’s PR Director, Amy Powell, was extolling the virtues of the hiking trails on both sides of the harbour. Surprisingly, 70 per cent of Hong Kong is protected green space. Behind Kowloon, the 100km-long MacLehose trail fans across the New Territories, like a wide veranda. If you’re up for a salivating section of the trail, plump for stage five, which encompasses historic artefacts and wild monkeys. The first part of the trail is where Commonwealth troops defended Hong Kong against the Japanese in World War 2. The high-point is the extension to Lion Rock, serving up seraphic panoramas across Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Also on stage 5, you’ll encounter the circus-like theatrics of the wild monkey colony. Amy also raved about the Dragon’s Back, a wildly popular escape from the urban jungle, which starts on Shek O Rd near To Tei Wan Village. The trail provides sublime views of Shek O, Tai Long Wan, Stanley, Tai Tam, and the South China Sea. It’s an 8km hike and can easily be knocked off in a few hours. I recently stopped over for a 24-hour You can also it up the rigours Hong Kong fling, to pin break of long-hauling it home from Europe.

Sport In Brief ARMSTRONG HEADS SOUTH Marcus Armstrong will go to Teretonga Park in Invercargill this weekend looking to build on his opening race win in the Toyota Racing Series. Armstrong, 16, won the opening race at Ruapuna last Saturday before crashing out of Sunday’s Lady Wigram Trophy race. After the opening round, he sits fifth in the series standing on 135 points, 46 behind leader Richard Verschoor from the Netherlands. TEEN GOLFERS TOP 10 FINISH Three Christchurch teenagers had top 10 finishes at the North Island under-19 golf championship in Hamilton. Hororata’s Dominic Brettkelly, Christchurch’s Tom Parker and Russley’s Hiroki Miya all recorded strong results at the tournament, which featured the country’s top young golfers and a handful of international talent. Brettkelly and Parker both finished tied for seventh, two shots off the lead, while Miya finished tied for 10th. ROONEY TO PLAY IN POLAND Christchurch basketballer Erin Rooney has signed with Polish club Artego Bydgoszcz for the second half of the Polish league season. Rooney has battled back to fitness after undergoing knee surgery early last year. Last year, Rooney picked up a knee injury playing for Calais in the French league, an injury which impacted on her ability to perform at her best for the Tall Ferns during last year’s Olympic qualifying campaign. Bydgoszcz are the reigning Polish league champions but currently sit seventh in the 12-team competition with a 7-6 record. MEDALS FOR BROUGHTON Up-and-coming athlete Maia Broughton, who last month broke a 44-year-old under-16 Canterbury 200m record held by her coach Bev Peterson, achieved more success at the weekend’s Colgate Games in Invercargill. Broughton, 14, of Rolleston, returned with four gold medals and was one of five outstanding young athletes to receive the Colgate-Palmolive Nick Willis Scholarship Award. The scholarship earned Broughton a $500 donation to put towards sports gear, coaching and other resources to help her toward her goals. Her gold medals were in the 100m, 200m, 400m and long-jump events, while she was also part of the bronze medal-winning Selwyn Athletic Club relay team.

Former snooker champion set to serve it up on court „„ By Gordon Findlater THE MAN considered by many as the country’s greatest exponent of snooker and billiards will look to add another national title to his collection – this time on the tennis court. Dave Meredith is best known for his 35-year career in cue sports, which included four snooker and a record 15 national billiards titles. This weekend he will go for his second singles title in the over 65 category at the Tennis NZ senior national champs at the Hagley and Cashmere tennis clubs. Meredith played representative tennis as a teenager, winning a Canterbury under-17 singles title and a secondary school title with Christchurch Boys’ High School during the 1960s. He then gave up tennis to concentrate on snooker and billiards before retiring early to focus on introducing his three sons, Matthew, Tim and James, to tennis. The shift could be considered successful as all three also went on to win secondary school titles for CBHS and win

regional or national individual titles. His older son, Matthew, will join him at this weekend’s champs, competing in the plus-35 category. Wondering how many more snooker and billiards titles he could have gone onto win isn’t something he dwells on. “I just left it behind and moved onto a new challenge. I was quite happy to get out

while I was on top. I retired when I was the New Zealand billiards champion in 1997. I didn’t say I was going to retire, I just put my cue away and never played again,” said Meredith. His competitive nature has become evident in anything he attempts. Meredith has run 14 marathons with a personal best time of 2hr 40min 17sec, and just a click over 1hr 15min

in the half marathon. He says staying physically and mentally fit gave him the edge during his snooker and billiards days. The Cashmere Tennis Club player had his first crack at the national senior tennis champs in 2014. He travelled to Nelson and came home with both the plus-65 singles and doubles titles. He returned to the champs in Napier last year, where he captured his second doubles title and was runnerup in the singles. He is confident of securing a third doubles title on home soil with fellow Cashmere teammate Max Morrison, but knows he will have to be at his absolute best to challenge defending champion Quentin Maisey in the singles, who is ranked ninth in the world for plus-65. “He gave me a bit of a dustup last year but in saying that he played extremely well against me. I’ll have to serve very well against him, that will be the key,” said Meredith. The senior champs get under way on Saturday and run until next Wednesday, with 10 age categories being played across Hagley and Cashmere.

Kobori joins Ko at Florida home base RANGIORA golfer Momoka Kobori had the experience of a lifetime, honing her craft with the Lydia Ko. Kobori, 17, and Tauranga’s Alanna Campbell spent the last week in camp with the world’s No 1 women’s golfer after being named as recipients of the inaugural Lydia Ko Scholarship.

„„ By Ross Kiddie ELEGANCE, STYLE and performance don’t always go hand-in-hand in motor vehicle manufacture. But Korea’s Kia Corporation has certainly done that with the new mid-to-large sedan, the Optima. Well, when I say new, the Optima is mostly all new, it has a new chassis and it is bigger than before, but it looks little different, it still has the same sleek body style, and the latest iteration builds on those values I’ve just mentioned. The Optima reeks of flair and fashion, it sits low and it has a body style that oozes desire, that element is also carried over to the interior, the entire car has had a refresh with a renewed emphasis on quality trim and materials. There is little difference in price either, in fact it could well be cheaper than the outgoing model depending on specification. Limited specification comes in at $48,990; for that money the Optima comes well specced, major features include satellite navigation, radar cruise control, full leather trim with heated front seats with electric seat adjustment, heated steering wheel and paddle shift gearbox. It’s fair to say, though, the evaluation car was top spec, an EX variant sits $3200 below that and it would probably be my choice given it doesn’t miss out on much and it has cloth trim which is my preference. All that aside, both variants get a 2.4-litre petrol engine. It’s not a new unit, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if has had a bit of a makeover in terms of refinement, such is the quiet and sophisticated way the Optima drives, the engine is a major part of the hushed way in which the car travels. And as I eluded to in my

KIA OPTIMA LTD: Design flair oozes desire.

introduction, the Optima isn’t short on performance. Rated at 138kW and 241Nm, the twin-camshaft, 16-valve unit has plenty of urge. It drives through the low and close ratios of a six-speed automatic gearbox, together the driveline promotes swift acceleration and easy momentum when it reaches the driver’s desired speed. • Price – Kia Optima Ltd, $48,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4855mm; width, 1860mm; height, 1465mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive, 2359cc, 138kW, 241Nm, sixspeed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.8sec • Fuel usage – 8.3l/100km

It’s hard to detect how hard the engine is working, for a big block fourcylinder it is uncannily subdued, and even under acceleration sound is well isolated from the cabin. Unfortunately, my testing time was cut a little short, an engine maintenance warning light flicked up on the dash during the time the test car was in my care, so I was very circumspect as to how I drove the car, and how far. That aside, the engine has a lot of usable torque

through the mid range which means it is happy slugging it out in the areas where fuel use is minimised. Kia claims an 8.3-litre per 100km (34mpg) combined cycle average for the Optima and that figure is quite realistic, during my time with the test car the fuel usage readout was constantly listing around 9l/100km (31mpg) along with a 6l/100km (47mpg) figure available instantaneously at 100km/h (engine speed 1700rpm). The Optima cruises beautifully, it has a plush ride and sound is deadened. Kia has utilised a fully independent, front stunt/rear multiple link set-up. I like these arrangements, the rear wheels have freedom and springs and shocks are allowed to do their job unimpeded. Mid-corner bumps are dealt to without deviation off-line, while at the other end steerage is direct and turn-in is accurate. Riding on high quality Michelin Pilot rubber (235/45 x 18in), the sport specification tyres have strong grip properties along with little sound. They are also partly responsible for the strong steering feel, the driver is fully involved with the handling process. Creating a new car and building on the success of its predecessor is a complicated and difficult process, but Kia has always done that well, and the Optima is a good example of how sophisticated the modern sedan has come to be. It’s just a pity that the sedan market in languishing in an age where a buyer’s first choice is generally a sport utility vehicle. Good cars like the Optima deserve to do better.

I S E N T

SUDOKU

Fill the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 to 9.

How many words of three or more letters can you make, using each letter only once? Plurals are allowed, but no foreign words or words beginning with a capital. There’s at least one five-letter word. Good 15 Very Good 20 Excellent 24

HOW TO PLAY It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2017 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

You need to be realistic about your limits. It is

Licensed Agent REAA 2008

better to hire a tradesperson and get the job done properly than to make costly mistakes. By law, some jobs need to be done by a professional, such as gas, plumbing, drainage and some electrical work. Major maintenance matters.

• Ventilating (including extractor fans in bathrooms and kitchens, opening windows, using a dehumidifier or forced ventilation system and keeping vents clear). • Heating (aim to keep the indoor temperature at a minimum of 16C). • Replacing unflued gas heaters with electric or flued gas heaters.

CHECKLIST FOR SELLING YOUR HOME … SET A PRICE A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free of charge or commitment. Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that have sold in the past six months. Check out comparable listings yourself in the real estate section of your newspaper or on websites. Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or the highest possible price.

… CLEAN & DECLUTTER Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”— toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale, or put it into storage—so the house seems more spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it. … STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE From the moment you start showing your house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless and clutter-free. … READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight. … DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN BUILDING INSPECTION It may save you time, especially with older homes, to identify—and potentially solve—problems your buyer’s inspection will discover later.

NOTICE OF PROHIBITION OF FIRES IN THE OPEN AIR WITHIN THE CITY OF CHRISTCHURCH

Do you have an Old Stamp Collection tucked away somewhere? It could be worth a fortune!

(IMPOSED PURSUANT TO SECTION 13 OF THE CHRISTCHURCH URBAN FIRE SAFETY BYLAW 2014) Notice is hereby given that the prohibition on fires in the open air over those parts of the district which are fire district declared or constituted under Section 26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 is imposed by Clause 13 of the Christchurch Urban Fire Safety Bylaw 2014 for the period from midnight Saturday 14 January 2017 until further notice. The prohibition applies to those parts of the district which are a Fire District declared as constituted under Section 26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 and these are Brooklands, New Brighton, Sumner, Lyttelton, Governors Bay, Diamond Harbour, Little River and Akaroa and Christchurch Urban Fire Districts (where District is defined as meaning “for which the Council is the territorial authority”). The Council may extend the prohibition. During any such prohibition no person shall light any fire in the open air and no person being the occupier of any premises shall cause, permit, or suffer any such fire to be lit there or to continue to burn there. The penalty for such an offence is a fine of up to $20,000. The purpose of the prohibition is to conserve public safety by preventing danger from fire. Note: The Council may at any time, where in its opinion special reason exists or may exist to prevent the outbreak or spread of fire, prohibit the lighting of fires in the open air for any specified additional period of time within all or any districts of the city as listed above.

Perhaps your grandparents or parents were collectors? Make sure you know what you have got. I am in Christchurch buying collections this week. Make an appointment to come in to us at Merivale, or I CAN HOUSE CALL for larger collections. Spaces fill up fast. Get in touch today. Call Matt Power on 0800 239 325 ZEALANDIA STAMPS

This prohibition does not apply to: 1. Any barbeque, pizza oven or hangi provided: (a) it is not likely to constitute a danger to any person or property by reason of its location, risk of spread, inadequate containment, prevailing wind or otherwise; and (b) there is immediately available a pressurised water supply connected to a hose; and (c) it is adequately supervised. 2. Any fire in the open air in respect of which the occupier of the land upon which the fire is situated has obtained from the Council an exemption from the prohibition. Exemptions may, under Section 15 of the Bylaw, be granted in exceptional circumstances in that: (a) the fire is urgently required to prevent, reduce or overcome any hazard to life, health, property or the environment; and (b) the use of fire is the most efficient and effective means to reduce any risk of hazard to life, health, property or the environment. Applications for exceptions may be made in writing to the Regulatory Compliance Unit, Civic Offices, PO Box 73049 Christchurch 8154 or at any Council Service Centre. The issue of an exemption is not a legal defence against claims for damage arising by reason of the fire. The responsibility for its control and liability for any damage which may arise lies with the person lighting the fire. Tracey Weston HEAD OF REGULATORY COMPLIANCE www.ccc.govt.nz
