School uncertain about the impact of closing Winters Rd „„ By Andrew King A SECTION of Winters Rd will be permanently shut to vehicles to make way for the Christchurch Northern Corridor bringing positive and negative effects for a primary school. The project will be a four-lane highway running from Chaneys Cnr to Cranford St. It aims to ease congestion in the north of the city and is expected to be completed by 2020. From February 7, the road in Mairehau, between property numbers 137 and 143, will be closed. Papanui Primary School is on the corner of Fraser and Cranford Sts. Principal Paul Kingston (above) said there are positive and negative effects to the closure. He said there will be more vehicles using the Fraser and Cranford Sts intersection outside the school and it limits access options for staff, parents and pupils. “But on the upside, there will be reduced ‘through’ traffic which often speed,” he said. “We’ll have to wait and see

the wider community. A tunnel will be constructed to allow pedestrians and cyclists

to pass under the motorway and is expected to be completed within six months. The Northern Corridor project includes the construction of a new road between QE II Dr and Cranford St, and the four-laning of Cranford St to Innes Rd. The new motorway will bring an estimated 20,000 extra vehicles a day into St Albans once finished. The city council will put together a team to come up with a downstream effects management plan to identify the traffic issues on surrounding residential streets. The team would then come up with strategies to mitigate those effects, which would go out for public consultation. Traffic congestion would become “increasingly severe” in Main North Rd, Cranford St and Marshland Rd if the new road was not built, the city council said.

Tuesday January 31 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

AARON KEOWN has always been one to think outside of the square, and on page 3 today he’s doing it again. Keown, elected back onto the city council late last year, campaigned to do something about the Harewood, Breens and Gardiners Rds intersection. To his credit he is backing up his campaign by pushing for the changes in 2017. More than 1700 people signed a petition he set up pre-election. To that end he is offering anyone $100 if they can come up with an intersection in Christchurch that has the same issues as Harewood, Breens and Gardiners Rds. He’ll use that as part of his case to get funding included in the Annual Plan. So good on you Aaron for pushing through with what you promised. – Barry Clarke

News Keown’s $100 intersection „„ By Andrew King ONE HUNDRED dollars is up for grabs to anyone who can find an intersection in Christchurch which has the same amount of lanes – and no traffic lights – like one in Harewood. City councillor Aaron Keown has laid down the challenge and will give $100 to the first person who can find an intersection the same as Harewood, Breens and Gardiners Rds. “All up, there are 10 lanes that converge at that point. I don’t think there is another intersection like that in the city, that doesn’t have lights,” he said. The intersection has been labelled dangerous by local schools and residents. Nor’West News reported in September that residents, schools and elected officials all want a change to the intersection due to near misses with school pupils, cars and cyclists. More than 1700 people signed a petition set up by Cr Keown calling for lights to be installed. It was also the main focus of his 2016 campaign to be elected on to the city council in the Harewood Ward.

He is now using the petition to lobby for money to be set aside for the upgrade in the city council’s annual plan. A draft version of the annual plan is expected to be finished in mid to late March and put out for public consultation. “There has been unprecedented interest in this intersection. I am still receiving phone calls and emails asking

KIDNEY SURGERY A 6 year old Golden Lab called, you guessed it, LOLA, came to see us for a referral ultrasound at the end of last year because she had been urinating “clots” of blood. She was clinically bright and alert at the visit but did have a history of possibly having access to rat bait 7 days earlier. The abdominal ultrasound was performed by Catherine and she found a possible bleed into the left kidney but no sign of tumours anywhere else. A wide range of blood and urine testing was performed, including clotting times in case of rat bait access, and all showed up very normal, apart from evidence that she had experienced a recent bleed. So initially she was discharged on Vitamin K in case of rat bait and antibiotics. She seemed bouncy and was of course still ravenous but a follow up ultrasound was scheduled for the following week to check to see if the haemorrhage had resolved in the left kidney.

She returned happily to see Kirsty the following week looking great. No further blood clots were seen in her urine. The ultrasound of the left kidney appeared in worse shape – the kidney was increased in size and still full of fluid – blood? Specialists were consulted and it was agreed that a CT scan was needed to rule in or out cancer. Kirsty accompanied Lola to her CT scan. The radiologist noted marked pathological changes in the left kidney that resembled a rapidly progressing primary kidney tumour. No sign of cancer was seen in the lungs or other parts of the abdomen. It was decided that she needed a nephrectomy ( removal of the left kidney) fairly urgently while she still essentially well. Her right kidney was functioning normally ( as seen on CT scan and via the bloods)and without surgery her prognosis was probably less than 1 month. So Kirsty and myself put our hands up to operate on Lola. A nephrectomy surgery is not to be taken lightly so we did our research before attempting the left kidney removal ( text book reading, U tube videos, consulting with other surgeons). We had a blood donor dog, a German shepherd called Pepper, on standby in case she lost a lot of blood or we couldn’t control surgical bleeding.

My Lola frequently gave blood but since she’s had a renal tumour removed and undergone chemotherapy, she can no longer have blood drawn. It is important for a clinic to have access to a healthy, young, disease free canine patient in the case a blood transfusion is needed. Collecting blood is largely straight forward although the donor dog often needs to be sedated as the collection needle is large bore and goes into the jugular vein. The patient must lay very still while we are collecting the blood. Pepper did an amazing job and her blood was sent to the After hours clinic with Lola in case she required it. The surgery was a complete success, and even though there were a few tense moments during the 2 hour operation, Kirsty and I were thrilled with the final outcome. Her left kidney and ureter were carefully removed and the bleeding controlled. Georgie did a superb job of anaesthetic monitoring – not straight forward at all. Lola woke up brilliantly and has really never looked back. Her owners were very thrilled and grateful for the work our entire team carried out from start to finish. And the best news being, the mass in the kidney wasn’t “cancer”, the kidney was diseased, non functioning and had a large blood clot present. Lola will need ongoing monitoring to make sure the surviving kidney maintains good health. This will be done by regular blood and urine testing with her primary vet in Ashburton. Just like with my Lola, we are out of the woods but still need to keep our eyes open for any small changes. My Lola did have kidney cancer confirmed so she gets 6 monthly CT scans at St Georges and 3 monthly blood and urine testing. Periodically she is fed Prescription kidney diets but for now her surviving kidney is holding up well. Long may it last – my Lola is now swimming and relaxing up in the Bay of Islands with the family. Take home message – consult your vet immediately if your dog passes clots of blood in the urine. This isn’t normal.

Has Donald Trump revived politics? It seems to be the topic every media outlet across the globe is reporting – the Donald Trump presidency. While we have seen him already make controversial moves like remove the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and adopt an archaic, protectionist approach to trade, the question still stands. Is a Trump presidency likely to improve the awareness of politics and the importance of voting? One of the struggles inherent with local government elections is the lack of awareness or engagement and the resulting low voter turnout. In the 2016 elections, only 40 per cent of Christchurch voters cast a ballot. For an organisa-

tion tasked with spending millions of dollars every year on roads, traffic, waterways, parks and collecting rubbish, there isn’t much of everyday life that isn’t impacted by the work overseen by elected representatives. Now, while I don’t propose that our elections are comparable to the US elections, the challenge remains: How do we improve voter participation and increase the awareness of what your city council and community board do for you? I’ve taken a different approach in the Waimairi Ward. Firstly, by working with local residents on key issues, such as challenges with urban planning and development, parking and traffic issues, and the under utilisation of our parks and recreational areas. Secondly, I’ve been working to raise awareness of the importance of

democratic participation. As a young representative, passionate about getting youth involved in not only our community, but the democratic process, more can be done. I challenge you to talk to someone under the age of 30 and discuss the importance and impact of their vote. While rubbish collection and traffic issues may not be the most appealing conversations, the point remains – will the ongoing controversy surrounding the Trump presidency, in the very least, raise awareness around the importance and impact of your democratic right to vote?

News School’s pool sharing plan „„ By Andrew King THE YMCA and Fendalton Open Air School could work together to keep costs down once the school’s new pool is built. Both have entered into a memorandum of understanding. Under this, the YMCA would take over the running of the pool and promote it, while the school will fundraise the $750,000 needed to build it. Board of trustees chairwoman Emily Flaszynski said it was vital to get the YMCA on board as the running costs of the pool would be too much for the school to pay on its own. “This way we can do what we do best. Educate,” she said. It would mean there will be a cost to use the pool and Ms Flaszynski said that is currently being worked through by the YMCA. There would be learn to swim classes, water safety and coaching available, Ms Flaszynski said. She said with the YMCA on board, it will become “more than just a pool.” “There is about 1800 students in the surrounding area that can use it. Locals will be able to head

Merivale filmmaker follows Muslim skater „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding ZAHRA LARI could become the first figure skater to represent the United Arab Emirates at the Winter Olympics. And a filmmaker who grew up in Merivale is determined to capture the skater make history at next year’s event in South Korea. From the moment filmmaker Niamh Peren (left), 27, stumbled across a low-quality video of the Muslim figure skater on YouTube, she instantly wanted to know more. “We became like pen pals for a little bit and I was like this is too good of a story. She is on the cusp of doing something really big,” Peren said. The filmmaker secured a week in February to travel to Abu Dhabi to create a documentary about the inspiring skater in her homeland. “I think it is a really beautiful and cinematic notion, an ice skater that comes from the desert. Like it is quite a brave sport to choose . . . the chill of the ice and the heat of the desert is just worlds apart,” she said. Peren, who attended St Margaret’s College, will travel over

with a small film crew, including London-based cinema photographer Jeremy Valender. Valender, who has shot a range of work for Burberry, Adidas, Google and Louis Vuitton, is one of the big names Peren has built up in her contact list. Peren has worked with filmmakers Jane Campion, Garth Davis and Jonathan Glazer. The film crew plans to “get to know” Lari and her home life by capturing places such as the rink she trains in, and the desert she drives past on the way to training each day. “Hopefully, she gets into the Olympics, which will be the biggest thing ever and we will go to South Korea and watch her shred it,” Peren said. Peren’s career took off when she first acted in the film Blue, which won an award in the Cannes critics’ week section of the Cannes Film Festival, when she was 17. She then started her own video-making while studying at the Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland. Recently, Peren was signed to Blink Productions in London, which specialises in commercial and music video production, and she has since been travelling for her filmmaking.  Peren and her crew need to

raise at least $10,000 to under take the project and have so far raised about $2540 using Givealittle. She will be supported by two film companies. She said people who make donations will have their name presented in the end credits. “I think it is such an important, huge and beautiful story. Seriously, in today’s climate, if we look at the women’s march, it is really important to be telling female stories,” she said.

Former St Bede’s student gets career boost „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding OLIVER DAVIDSON was going to study to become a surveyor at Otago University. But after achieving three major feats in the performing arts realm, the former St Bede’s College student has decided to take a risk. Davidson, of Papanui, will study a Bachelor of Performing Arts at Otago University after winning a $16,000 scholarship.  But, not only has he had his tertiary fees covered, he was recently accepted to attend an intensive singing school in Napier earlier this month, and has been chosen to represent the country at the world championships of performing arts in Los Angeles in June. About 300 people auditioned for a place in Napier’s IFAC Handa NZ Singing School and Davidson was one of 73 chosen to attend.  But, while the 11-day course focuses on helping students to accelerate their skills in singing, Davidson said what he enjoyed most was being around likeminded people. He said his junior years at St Bede’s were a struggle with some of his fellow classmates finding dancing a “weird thing.”  But he said as everyone grew

up they began to see dancing as “cool” instead. “I think towards the end of my high schooling, it was quite good. There wasn’t many people like me, it made me stand out so I wasn’t just part of the norm,” he said. Having started in dance at the Patricia Paul School of Dance and Southern Ballet Theatre, his involvement in the arts began to go up a gear when he performed in all three productions produced by Showbiz Christchurch last year. Now, encouraged by his No 1 supporter, his mum, Davidson will have a crack at a career in arts.  “Some people were like you are so stupid going down to Dunedin to do surveying, why are you wasting your talent?” he said.  He is now hoping for the best outcome for his career from his upcoming competition at the world championships.  The competition, known as the official ‘talent Olympics’ is renowned for giving scholarships to schools, such as the New York Film Academy and the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. But for now, Davidson is most excited about having the chance to “start over again” in Dunedin.

News Parents urged to take care around school drop-off zones

Farm buildings to be restored

Fashion AS STUDENTS start to head back for another year of school, the city’s travel planners are urging parents to take a fresh approach to school drop-offs. City council travel advisers are urging caution around schools as more pedestrians and cyclists hit the roads. Transport operations manager Steffan Thomas said the new school year was the best time to look at your school drop-off and pick up routines and make a change to active travel. “We’re asking drivers to remember that there will be more pedestrians and cyclists about, many of them young. We’re asking drivers to be especially careful and watch their speeds around schools,” he said. Mr Thomas said if walking or cycling the entire distance from home wasn’t practical, parents could consider parking further out from the school gate. “Our school year starts back in summer so the weather is warm enough to walk, scoot or cycle at least part NEW of the way to school,” 1 LOCATION ADVERT.pdf Mr Thomas said.

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding TWO FARM buildings on the original Deans’ farm in the heart of Riccarton could be restored by the end of June. The buildings at 39 Kahu Rd, close to Riccarton House and Bush, were damaged in the February 2011 earthquake. Work is under way on the buildings, which will become a museum. The city council last week rubberstamped a heritage grant of $62,326 to help the $2.1 million repair cost. The buildings are on Christchurch Boys’ High School land and are owned by the school. Headmaster Nic Hill (above) said the grant was “wonderful news.” The school was committed to having the buildings open to the public within the first half of the year. “We are really appreciative of the support . . . it is important; 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. they are the first farm buildings

In the 1970s, fundraising had began to convert the buildings into a museum, but that never eventuated. The total cost to restore the building is estimated to be $2.1 million. The school has $1,486,468 available from insurance and has so far raised almost $150,000 for the project.

Other funding is being sought and a Givealittle page has also been set up. Mr Hill said the school would fund whatever the shortfall was to complete the project.

Zonta garage sale to boost charities

WATER FUN: Mikaylin Ivory, of Belfast, having fun in the warm weather at the end of the school holidays last week. She is playing at the Margaret Mahy Family Playground.

A GROUP of women have spent six months collecting items for a garage sale – with the proceeds to go to charity. Zonta Club of Christchurch South will hold its annual summer garage sale on February 11 with children’s toys, preserves, furniture, ornaments and linen among some of the items for sale which will be held bordering the village green on Dyers Pass Rd, Cashmere. Club president Sue Clark said the women have been busy collecting and making items to sell. “It is a lot of work but well worth it,” Ms Clark said. Members family and friends have helped by donating items as well. “It’s a white elephant sale really, with a huge array of goods, all in good order and all donated to us by friends and families. This sale is an annual event . . . and it provides us with a great start to the year.” Funds raised are all distributed to the club’s chosen charities. “We have a number of very worthwhile charities which we support and it is incredibly satisfying to be able to make substantial donations to these groups. Next up on our activities

list will be a visit to the Broadfield Garden on February 19, and tickets to this are still available to the public.” The Zonta Club of Christchurch South is part of the national Zonta network which in the last four years has donated thousands of dollars to the Sophie Elliot Foundation, principally for the publication and distribution of the book Loves Me Not. A copy of this book is given to every student who participates in a course jointly delivered by the Foundation and the New Zealand Police, and on offer to all New Zealand secondary schools. Mrs Clark says Zonta aligns itself well with the Sophie Elliot Foundation because Zonta’s prime aim is to improve the status of women worldwide. The Zonta Club of Christchurch South is well known for its annual Zonta Sports Awards which attract competition from top athletes and sportspeople in the secondary schools in the region. For more information about Zonta or tickets to the Broadfield Garden tour email christchurchsouth@zonta.org.nz or phone Sue 344 2141.

MEDALS: The St Andrew’s boys’ under-17 coxed four of Oliver Bailey, Ben Oxley, Evan Young, Flynn Dijkstra and Tom Flavill (coxswain), were one of five crews from the school to win gold. PHOTO: STEVE MCARTHUR BIG HITS: The Riccarton Knights and Papanui Tigers were two of the six teams which contested the inaugural Rolleston Nines tournament on Saturday. The tournament, at Rolleston Reserve, was won by the Linwood Keas which beat the Halswell Hornets 28-6 in the final. The Rolleston Warriors and Wycola Heat also took part.

St Andrew’s break rowing record with 16-medal haul

„„ By Gordon Findlater ST ANDREW’S College broke records over the weekend, as Christchurch’s top rowing schools continued their Maadi Cup build up. St Andrew’s qualified for 30 A finals – a regatta record – at the South Island Rowing Championships, held over the weekend at Twizel’s Lake Ruataniwha. They went on to win 16 medals on Sunday, five of which were gold. Their first gold came in the men’s under-19 coxed four with the schools second boat complet-

ing a one-two in the race. St Andrew’s also occupied the first two podium spots in the boys’ under-17 coxed four. Meanwhile, the boys’ under-15 coxed four, men’s under-19 coxless pair oars and girls’ under-15 coxed four also came home with gold. Christchurch Boys’ High School secured the most gold medals at the regatta with seven of their nine podiums resulting in wins. They took gold in the under-17 coxed eight, under-15 coxed octuple sculls, club coxed four, under-16 coxed four, novice

coxed eight, under-15 coxed eight and open coxed eight. There was also success for Rangi Ruru Girls’ School which came away from the regatta with eight medals, five of which were gold. St Margaret’s College managed seven medals, while Christchurch Girls’ High School secured three golds in their five medal haul. The next event in the build up to March’s Maadi Cup is the Canterbury Schools’ Regatta at Ashburton’s Lake Hood on February 25.

MATT DOOCEY

MP FOR WAIMAKARIRI CHAT WITH MATT

Since being back at work, with my offices opening on 6 January, I have been out and about visiting constituents. I’m enjoying being able to meet people in my new office in Belfast and it’s great to be more accessible for Northern Christchurch residents. Thanks for the feedback to all those who’ve let me know how much the new office has helped them.

a demonstration of the first fully autonomous electric vehicle in New Zealand at Christchurch Airport. The airport provides employment opportunities in not only the terminals but also at the business and tourism park developments. Tourism is one of the cornerstones of Christchurch’s recovery, so we are lucky to have the airport right on our doorstep, with the new roading networks to feed people efficiently through the city.

I’ve enjoyed watching progress on the Western Belfast Bypass over the summer break. It’s going to be a game-changer for commuters, delivering shorter travel times and it will free up our local roads. A reliable roading system will support our economic development and growth, something that was brought home to me last week while attending

Like many families, the summer holidays usually mean a trip to Willowbank. It’s another great familyfriendly destination and the hours of fun it provides for the children is valuable during the long summer break. It’s another example of the Waimak being a great place for families.

We’re into the start of another busy year.

Hello

New location for language school in Burnside

iel cutting Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalz y, with AEI mon cere ning the ribbon at the ope t, and guests. righ her on rne Tho hryn principal Kat

Specialist English language school, the Alpha Educational Institute (AEI), moved into new premises at the end of 2016, with an official opening by Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel. Now located in the Canterbury & Technology Park in Burnside, AEI offers a range of programmes for children through to adults, and a sister company, Alpha Homestays, arranges home stays for its international students. Director of Alpha Homestays and principal of AEI school Kathryn Thorne talks to Alpha Homestays co-ordinator Margaret Bray about the experience of hosting students and about the new facilities. Kathryn: Margaret, you yourself have hosted many students over the years. What would be some of the stand-out ‘positives’ in your mind? Margaret: You learn a lot about their culture, and you learn that it is not nationality but personality. It’s the sharing of culture, food, language and experiences. If you have children or grandchildren, there is that extra layer of positive ‘spin-offs’ all round. Another one of the good things is that you get to see your own environment through new eyes. You may have been to places many times before, but when you are showing your student around, you get to experience it

through their fresh eyes, and to enjoy it on a whole new level. Some of the popular places we have taken our students to are: Akaroa, Hanmer Springs, Lake Tekapo, the A&P Show, school fairs, the Riccarton Market, the Botanic Gardens and Canterbury Museum, canoeing on the Avon, Willowbank Wildlife Park, and simply joining in a family BBQ or watching the bright stars in our night sky. Students adjust at different rates and have to be supported through that, but generally, they love to become ‘part of the family’. Many of our students have stayed in touch over the years and even revisited us. Kathryn: What is special about the new AEI school premises where Alpha Homestays has its office now? Margaret: It’s amazing – light, bright and breezy. Beautiful grounds – lots of windows and surrounded by trees. There have been many positive comments from the students and teachers and it’s convenient for Alpha Homestays to be sharing the AEI campus. It’s very exciting to be located in this Business and Technology Park, with a lot going on around us. And our opening ceremony with our Christchurch Mayor, Leanne Dalziel, was a fantastic occasion!

A student enjoys meeting a new friend.

Canoeing on the Avon is one of the many activities students can particip ate in.

Café Berlin

Alpha Educational Institute (AEI) has now moved to 19 Sheffield Crescent, Burnside!

Alpha Homestays has also moved and works closely with AEI. We are looking for good, new, welcoming homestay families in this area for our International Students! We are especially interested in homes that are near to the No 17; No 120; No 125; No 29 or the Purple Line Bus routes.

„„ By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer LAST WEEKEND’S wild weather caused a few issues around town with our fire trucks attending a number of trees and lines down. Scariest for the occupants was a house in Marine Pde where a power pole ended up hanging over the building. Evacuation of the home was the only option until the power authorities could stabilise things. THe old pot on stove scenario was evident again this week with one of the incidents being at a school. I’m not going to say where because I don’t want to embarrass the staff but it’s so easy to see someone putting the pot on and then rushing off to do some of the thousands of jobs needed to do and simply forgetting.  One third of all structure fires start in the kitchen. The saying: ‘Keep looking when you’re cooking’ never dates. One of the most frightening events for a young mother is accidentally locking your children in the car. We are quite often called to assist in breaking-in and mum’s distress is commonly picked up by the child who becomes equally unhappy.  Not so on the Rapaki Track on Wednesday, where the trapped baby was still smiling when Woolston’s crew finally broke into the car. Mum smiled then too!  A late night cigarette outside saved a

late model car from major damage in Avonhead in the early hours of Thursday when a smoker noticed, well, smoke! Smouldering electrics would probably have eventually destroyed the car. Not often something good comes from ciggies!

Offering a full range of dental services

A fortnight. One month. Two months. How much time and patience does one need to have a porcelain crown or a ceramic dental restoration nowadays? At Merivale Dental Group, they acknowledge people have hectic lifestyles juggling work and family life leaving little time for multiple dental appointments. CEREC same-day dental crowns and implants are the most modern technology available in dental restoration. They are one of a few practices in Christchurch being able to manufacture and place ceramic restorations by taking a 3D

digital scan of your teeth. The tooth is then designed on clever software and sculpted by a milling unit which allows them to produce beautiful, strong porcelain restorations in the one appointment. This means no temporary restoration and no second visit for their patients. Merivale Dental Group has the latest and state-of-the-art Omnicam CEREC unit. Dentists David Rowley and Jenny Kim believe that the advances of digital dentistry are the way of the future and pride themselves in producing strong long lasting restorations.

NOTE: The owners have just had a subdivision report completed by a Registered Survey Company, a Geotechnical Report completed by Registered Consulting Engineers and a subdivision application has been submitted to council. This is currently in the approval process and applies for two separate titles to be issued for the property. Title 1 - House on 1023m2 and Title 2 - Separate section of 1000m2. On a 2023m2 section which occupies a prime position right in the heart of the bay. Enjoy the space and the stunning harbour / hill views. Last on the market in 1948, this was home to one of our much loved local identities. The comfortable family home offers three double bedrooms and open plan living opening to wrap-around verandah. You will be super cosy in winter with the Kent Duo wood-burner and heat-pump, plus a still operational “chippy” in the kitchen.

Spread out and keep the whole half acre (2023m2)for yourself, develop into a beautiful garden or just keep as real country space for the kids to romp.
