Worry over Selwyn St plan „„ By Noah Graham OPPOSITION TO the Selwyn St shops upgrade plan is mounting. More than 170 submissions were received on the city council’s Selwyn Street Shops Streetscape Enhancement design, with the majority opposing the plan, particularly the removal of parking spaces. The street would lose 19 car parks to put cycleways down both sides of Selwyn Karolin Potter St between Brougham and Coronation Sts, and local businesses are worried the reduced parking would discourage their customers. Pies and Coffee co-owner Sarah Lim set up a petition in her shop which received more than 90 signatures opposing the plan. Ms Lim said the signatures showed customers needed the parking spaces. She was not opposed to the idea of enhancing Selwyn St, but wondered why the design was intent on hurting businesses. “I can’t afford for the car parks to go; we would go bankrupt.” The enhancement has been delayed by 18 months after it was omitted from the city council’s draft Annual Plan. Ms Lim hoped the delay would

give the city council time to listen and come up with a design that will not have a negative effect on businesses. “If they have got a change of plan, we are willing to listen.” She said the project manager was invited to sit outside her business and watch the number

of cyclists who use the road, she would even make them a coffee. Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said she feels for the businesses, but the city needs projects like this to turn it into the “excitable city” residents deserve.

THERE’S A very poignant exhibition at the Linwood Library which readers should take time to visit. It’s a record of 17 men with links to the Heathcote Valley who fought in World War 1 but never returned home (see pages 5-6). Linwood Library staff have done a fantastic job of compiling information about the 17, which is part of a Government programme across New Zealand to remember those who fought in the war which was supposed to end all wars. The exhibition takes the names of the soldiers, which are inscribed on the Heathcote War Memorial, and adds a description and photo of who they were. Remembering soldiers as people, rather than just names on a memorial, was the aim, and library staff have it done it well. - Barry Clarke

to be cool when it is built,” she said. Woolston Community Association co-ordinator Carol Brown said it was fantastic news that there were dates in place for the library and community facility. She said it was surprising the project was progressing as quickly as it was. “I think it is great news something is happening.” Mrs Brown said the community will be happy because the volunteer library currently set up on the site is “quite small” with only a few people able to fit inside. She said it would help towards restoring Woolston’s image as a place that is worth investing in.

Remembering the lives of fallen soldiers SERVICE: Seventeen World War 1 soldiers with links to Heathcote Valley died overseas protecting their country in World War 1. The Linwood Library is holding an exhibition to display them as people, rather than as names on a memorial.

Rifleman Frank Adamson was living with his parents at 479 Hereford St in Linwood and studying law at Canterbury College at the time he enlisted. He was wounded in the field in France in July, 1916. He survived but was later killed in action on October 31, 1918, at the age of 25.

„„ By Noah Graham REMEMBERING soldiers as people, rather than just names on a memorial, is the goal of a library exhibition. The Linwood Library is holding an exhibition this month to display the lives, personalities and achievements of 17 soldiers with links to Heathcote Valley who died in World War 1. Community learning librarian Andrea Lord said the exhibition aimed to take the names of the soldiers, which are inscribed on the Heathcote War Memorial, and add a description of who the soldiers were along with a photograph. She said as part of the

Government’s WW100 programme, groups across the country are doing various activities to help remember those who fought in World War 1. She said starting out with just the soldiers’ names, service number and the knowledge they had lived in Heathcote, library staff compiled information about who they were, what they had done, where they had died and how. She said the soldiers in the exhibition died in Gallipoli, France and Palestine and it was a shame their whole lives had been reduced to a few words on a memorial. “All of the staff found researching the soldiers really meaningful and they were all

pleased they had done it.” She said library staff would walk past where the soldiers had lived or places they had known and could not help but think of those places in a different way. Mrs Lord said staff had spent months trawling through library records and old newspapers, piecing together the soldiers’ lives. She said the reaction from people viewing the exhibition had been really interesting. “People have been stopping to read about every single soldier. “One lady had said how sad it was and she found it quite moving.” The exhibition will run at the Linwood Library in the Eastgate Shopping Centre until April 30.

Rifleman Richard Burnell attended Heathcote Valley District School and Lyttelton District High School. After he left school, he joined the Railways Department. He enlisted in the army on May 31, 1915, as a rifleman in the 2nd Battalion. On September 24, 1916 he was killed in action in the field at Somme, Northern France, aged 25. He is remembered with Honour at the Caterpillar (New Zealand) Memorial in Longueval, Somme.

Rifleman James Cogle was born on April 11, 1892, and was raised in Lyttelton. He was a fireman with the New Zealand Railways. He was killed in action on September 15, 1916, and served alongside his brother, Robert, who also served and died during the war.

Gunner Walter Parker was born in Ashburton on April 15, 1891. He was 24 and a clerk for New Zealand Railways when he first enlisted. He lived at 77 Port Hills Road, Heathcote, at the time. Parker was killed in action on July 22, 1916, in the Battle of the Somme and was buried at the Cite Bonjean Military Cemetery in Armentieres, France.

Private Hector Rhind grew up in Reserve Tce in Lyttelton and lived at 117 Richardson St in Opawa as a cycle mechanic working for Bell Bros. He died on September 16, 1916, and was 23-yearsold at the time. •More profiles, page 6

Private Michael Ian Adamson was born on June 1, 1895, in Sumner. He was one of six children born to Reverend Henry Adamson and Marianne Burke Adamson. He was serving in the North Canterbury and Westland Regiment Territorial Forces when he enlisted with the New Zealand Expeditionary Force on April 19, 1915. On March 27, 1918, he was 22 when he was seriously wounded with a gunshot wound to the head and on March 30 at 12.25pm, he died of his wounds. He had a bout of bad luck in his service and had spent more time recovering from injuries and illness than he spent in military action. John Wetherall was born in Prebbleton, on May 24, 1886. His family lived at 26 Bridle Path Rd in Heathcote Valley and he was a malster at the Canterbury Seed Company, responsible for taking cereals and making malt out of the grain to be used to create beer. In the Battle of Ayun Kara in Palestine, on November 14, 1917, he was killed in action and buried in Palestine. His grave can be found in the Ramleh War Cemetery. Lieutenant Lestock Henry Reid was born on November 7, 1885, and grew up in Ardlui, Rakaia. Reid attended Heathcote Valley District School before he went to Christchurch Boys’ High School. He was 28 and worked as a marine engineer in the Mediterranean when war broke out. He was 30 when he died in action during the Battle of the Somme on May 20, 1916. He is buried in the Cite Bonjean Military Cemetery, Armentieres, France.

Under the New Zealand Building Code, all buildings, including residential, need to be suitably ventilated, either with opening windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this provision is to safeguard people from illness or loss of amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced, or mechanical, ventilation over opening windows, including warmth, security, reduction of outside noises and reduction of condensation. Traditional domestic ventilation systems are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from outside via the roof space and force the stale air out through gaps around windows and doors. The incoming air from these systems has to be heated or cooled to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer. The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It extracts air from the house and at the same time brings in fresh air. These two streams of air pass through a heat exchanger, which warms incoming air in winter and cools in summer if air conditioning is being used. This means that up to 80% of the energy which would be

Journey to a smile “Over the last few years Smile Concepts has helped my extreme fear of the dentist, treating me as a person not a dental guinea pig.” Visiting the dentist can be a daunting proposition for many people, who fear they may have to endure a painful process when having their teeth treated. That’s where the caring team of experienced dentists team at Smile Concepts can help, by providing painless treatment. Plus, the personal touch they offer by taking time to go over all the treatment options and associated costs means those who fear a dental surgery will be immediately put at ease. One patient who is very happy with their service tells her story…

“My name is Jacinta. I am a 27-year-old wife and mum from Christchurch. I have enamel hypoplasia, which is a lack in enamel formation. In most cases, the enamel on people’s teeth is low or thin, but I have no enamel on all my teeth, resulting in a dark-yellow colouring. After a life of struggling with everything from bullying to failed ‘fixes’, I decided to once again pursue my smile dreams. After ringing around Christchurch dentists, Smile Concepts was the first ‘off the bat’ to know about hypoplasia. Natalie happily booked me in for a consultation. Over the last few years Smile Concepts has helped my extreme fear of the dentist, treating me as a person not a dental guinea pig. Natalie always did what she knew would work instead of trying things that might. In January 2017 I contacted Dr Dee from Vogue Dental Studios in Melbourne. He is kindly donating his time, skills and expertise to give me my dream smile. Financially, this is something I would have never been able to do without Dr Dee. And Natalie has been fabulous in helping prepping me for my trip to Australia with photos, bite guards, moulds and cleaning. I am fundraising for flights, accommodation, travel around Melbourne and any other costs there may be. Every cent will truly be a huge help. Please follow my journey to smile. I will be leaving for Melbourne on June 9.” Smile Concepts is proud to help patients like Jacinta with any dental problems they may have. Their knowledgeable staff members use safe and proven procedures, the latest technology, materials and philosophies to enhance your teeth and smile.

Time Honoured 1 in 2 People Remedy Deficient in B12 According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an important part of a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly consumed cider vinegar and honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar and honey on arthritis can be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found regular administration of cider vinegar and honey at the onset of complaints such as the common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever, and childhood diseases such as chicken pox and measles, was accompanied by an improvement in the condition with symptoms either disappearing, or the conditions were extremely mild and soon over. Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Scientists have found over 90 different substances in ACV, among them 20 important trace elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a number of different acids including malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and pectin. A scientific study at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can destroy free radicals, which are a major factor in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down cholesterol formations in the blood vessels. ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all cider vinegar is made in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. Scientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass and the lowest scores on tests measuring shortterm memory, concentration and brain performance. Another study showed that older people with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains and score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage and declining cognitive function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair, and prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+ who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

with age as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication and other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body. Further detailed information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Ph: 388-5757 We are Always Happy to Help!

The ultimate campus for

Avonside and Shirley

A large Performing Arts Centre, three full-sized Gyms (complete with climbing wall) and four Sportsfields are among the key facilities that will be enjoyed by Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High School in the future. The two schools are being rebuilt alongside one another and next to the new QEII Sport and Recreation Centre. They will open in time for Term Two of 2019 so students who enrol to study at the schools next year, will only spend just over a year on the schools’ existing sites. The new campus’ design was created by New Zealand’s ASC Architects – part of the ShapED consortium that is building and will also maintain the new schools. Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume says being able to start from scratch has enabled ASC to come up with the ‘ultimate campus’. “We are delighted. The new campus will feature better facilities than either of our schools have ever had in the past.” Shirley Boys’ Headmaster John Laurenson agrees, describing the design as modern and sympathetic to the surrounding area. “The two schools will be set back from Travis Road with numerous trees and landscaped areas. It will be a very green campus,” says John Laurenson. As well as the major facilities, each school will have a long list of specialist learning facilities. Highlights include an Electronics Lab, a 2D and 3D Printing Room, six Science Labs and an Indoor Fitness Centre (complete with exercise equipment including rowing machines, stationery bikes and

treadmills). Sue Hume says the design enables the schools to offer students completely new experiences. “The facilities are just so much better than what we have now. For example, in each school’s Social Sciences and Media there is a large Editing Suite, Presentation Space, two Recording Studios and a Media Studio. It’s a big step up,” says Sue Hume. John Laurenson says the schools will continue to deliver quality single sex education. “Students will spend most of their day in a singlesex environment – that is really important to us. Single sex education benefits both boys and girls. Our students will also benefit, both educationally and socially, from being able to learn alongside and mix with students from the partner school. It is a fantastic opportunity.”

Two of the gyms on the campus will feature a climbing wall and be able to be linked for major events. The schools will also share a third gym

The schools will have numerous outdoor areas that will be landscaped to enable students and teachers to work outside.

The front of the campus will face Travis Road but be set behind a large landcaped courtyard and plantings.

When choosing the right school for our tamariki we often go by the ‘feeling’ we have when we visit as much as by the programmes that schools have on offer. Hornby High School’s feeling is one of positive relationships that support learning. In 2016 we reconsidered our vision as a school, and resolved that our aspiration is to be ‘A centre of creative excellence’ in everything that we do, whether visual arts or chemistry, volleyball or music, management or curriculum organisation. The world demands fewer people who can do repetitive tasks and more people who can think creatively and critically. In doing this we haven’t forgotten the importance of the strong relationships that we build with all of our students, and the importance of individualising learning pathways so that we come as close as we can to meeting every individual student’s needs. We are also committed to engaging with whanau in any and every way we can, this all taking place as we almost completely rebuild the physical school. I personally invite you to come along and meet with our skilled staff, and the amazing young people who make Hornby High School such a wonderful place to be.

you up for life

If you are looking for a high school where teachers work closely with you to ensure you get the very best out of your high school years, then Hagley’s Junior Graduating College is the right choice for you. We are often asked, what makes Hagley different? We have a culture like no other. No-one wears a uniform and everyone is on a first name basis, but that is just for starters. Students come to Hagley because they’re treated with respect and valued as individuals. Hagley’s Junior Graduating College has small classes and we take a personal approach. It is all about what we can do to help you. Classes are fun, focused and inspire you to be the very best you can. What does that mean for you? You feel that your teachers are interested in you and care about your learning, that you are

experiencing success – and much more. We love our students aiming high and doing well. Students graduate into Hagley’s large Senior College where they succeed academically and in many other ways, as well as become our school leaders. This is all built on the great foundations laid in our Junior College. Hagley’s Junior Graduating College combines the best of both worlds: freedom to be yourself and enjoy school in a structured and supportive environment where achievement is celebrated. Experience the Hagley difference – it will set you up for life!

Middleton Grange School Middleton Grange School Character, Excellence, Service for the Glory of God


Tue 23 & Thur 25 May 2017

Formation is at the heart of the education Middleton Grange School provides – a whole of life formation. We see learning as holistic; it aims to instruct the mind, shape the heart and equip the hand. The root of formation is faith and so Middleton Grange not only provides a first rate general education but also biblically based teaching in the Christian faith. Formation of the mind is not primarily intellectual contemplation or conceptual mastery but a learning that nurtures wisdom and discernment. It is a learning that challenges the mind to think, discern and critique the ideas and theories pupils are exposed to from a Christian perspective. Middleton Grange’s learning culture allows the formation of the heart so that it shapes

We want our pupils to engage in the society they live in, to be of benefit and blessing in a practical way. For Middleton Grange School, while our academic results are of the highest level, what is highly prized, is that our pupils exercise wisdom, serve the community and promote the well-being of others. It is about forming the pupil to be the person God created them to be. All of this is summed up in the school motto: Character, Excellence, Service for the Glory of God.

The success of the network has seen other schools wanting to join in. Early in the piece Rangiora New Life School became part of the network. The schools joined together to support the genesis of Ashburton Christian School and also culminated in the start up of a brand new school in Rolleston in 2015. The schools have developed interlocking enrolment schools which assists in providing transparent pathways in Christian education from new entrant through to Year 13. A further strength has been a cooperative engagement with the Ministry of Education who have been pivotal in assisting the networks successful development.

Educating boys with boys Medbury School is the only independent boys’ school in Christchurch, offering an education for both dayboys and boarders from Years 1 to 8. Medbury offers a traditional education, encompassing the Medbury values of manners and respect, and their vision is to provide an education which prepares boys for life in the 21st Century. Whilst placing a high value on Literacy and Numeracy in a ‘boysonly’ learning environment, Medbury also believes in helping boys develop as confident individuals, and developing personal attributes, such as organisation, confidence, relationships with others, and independence. At Medbury, the focus is on the ‘whole boy’, and small class sizes enable teachers to deliver a personalised learning programme, ensuring that every boy has the support, extension and encouragement he needs to discover and develop his particular strengths. The learning programmes are all focused on a boy’s way of learning, providing them with a structured

environment, with competition, boundaries and an opportunity to succeed. Medbury’s Headmaster, Peter Kay, states “Our passion at Medbury is to unlock the potential of every boy. It is why we exist – to understand each boy’s opportunities and challenges, then personalise an education which encourages him to strive to be the very best he can be. Friendships, values and a quiet self-confidence that comes with sound preparation, will provide an invaluable foundation for the boys’ educational journeys ahead.” For more information please contact Tanya Moore (Headmaster’s PA) on 03 351 6169, email nz or visit


Papanui High School

- preparing students for their future “Our aim is simple... to provide the best education possible for every student”

We are making a difference for our students and they are doing incredibly well. The school has worked hard to consolidate recent initiatives to ensure sustained and continuous improvement. Giving students the opportunity to study from an innovative and broad curriculum is critical to providing each student a pathway that meets their individual needs. We allow for a greater range and flexibility in subject choice including the utilization of the secondary/tertiary interface. This reinforces the philosophy underpinning personalised learning and is strongly supported by understanding our students’ interests, passions, talents, and ultimately their career aspirations. All that we do here is reinforced by positive relationships, an ethos of caring, cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and high expectations – what we call “Our Full service Model”. The school highly values the connectedness of curricular and co-

curricular learning. We have a philosophical understanding that the holistic development of the student is critical to their individual success. We understand that for effective learning to take place, it has to be implemented in such a way that students will be highly engaged. The school does this in a ‘forward thinking’ way by creating learning environments that allow our students to see value in what they do and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what we represent and we demonstrate this by having young adults leave our school as confident learners who have gained the appropriate qualifications and social skills to become valued contributing members of society. You are invited to view our website, school charter, ERO report, and/or contact the school for more information. We look forward to welcoming all prospective students and their families/ whanau to visit our school.
