Uncovered or covered? DRY CLEANIN G SERVICES

Debate on look of hot water pools „„ By Sarla Donovan DEBATE OVER whether New Brighton’s hot salt water pools should be covered or uncovered is starting to build. The Pegasus Post has canvassed people to find out what they want after fears it could be an open complex. The debate has been sparked after Pegasus Post published an artist’s impression of what the complex could look like. The drawing was included in a report given to city councillors at a public-excluded meeting about the hot salt water pools last year. The drawing was posted by Central Ward councillor Deon Swiggs on his Rebuild Christchurch website. But some in New Brighton are concerned that could be what the salt water pools will look like. Development Christchurch Ltd, which is overseeing the project is yet to commission design plans. Chief executive Rob Hall said they would wait until June, after the city council’s Annual Plan process had been completed. The New Brighton Pier and Foreshore Society put drawings

of a covered pool complex on its Facebook page last year. Society spokeswoman Eleanor Bodger said the images were just a starting point for debate. “There hasn’t been a discussion about what our position is. However, the concept that it’s usable all year round is a point of agreement for everybody (in the society). I personally would like to see an all-weather facility where people can enjoy the ocean environment day and night.” Should the pools be covered or uncovered? Maxine Jones, Ray White New Brighton: “We have to have shelter, we definitely need wind breaks. A retractable roof? Some companies make roofs that split so parts of it can retract separately. It can be nice sitting in pools and looking up at the stars. If Tekapo can be outdoors, we can be.” Kirsten Carey, South Brighton

Residents’ Association: “The hot pools themselves should be covered. With the easterly, it’s more likely people would use them, it keeps the weather away. People are more sun-savvy now too.”

THERE’S A storm brewing over what the salt water pools will look like. And it’s all to do with whether they are uncovered or covered. Publication of an artist’s impression of an uncovered pool complex shown to city councillors has stirred a hornets’ nest behind the scenes. Some groups in Brighton are very worried that might be what the pools end up looking like. Development Christchurch, which is overseeing the project, has assured the Pegasus Post (see page 1) that the designs are still some way off. But the open air design was in a council report, so New Brighton people do have genuine cause for concern in my view. Some form of covered complex is needed – who would venture out east to patronise the pools with a stiff easterly blowing off Pegasus Bay? – Barry Clarke

In Brief

Banks Avenue’s new school site „„ By Sarla Donovan TONI BURNSIDE is excited about the future. The Banks Avenue School principal finally announced to parents last week that the school has a new home. It’s the Shirley Boys’ High School site, once that school shifts to its new campus at QE II Park. The announcement’s been a long time coming. Toni The school’s Burnside board of trustees has known since last year about the shift, but has been waiting for the Ministry of Education to formally announce it. “We had a special ceremony organised for the last day of 2016. However, the ministry asked us to delay our announcement for a few weeks. A few weeks has now turned into a few months. We can no longer wait.” Mrs Burnside said there was excitement tinged with sadness. “There’s been such a delay. We’ve been working in a broken environment for six years. We would have liked the children

HYDROTHERAPY POOL A warm water hydrotherapy pool has been added to the plans for the QE II Recreation and Sport Centre after money was freed up in the centre’s budget. The pool, which will aid people with muscular aches and pains and conditions like arthritis, will measure 19.5m by 6.5m and have a maximum depth of 1.4m. It will be heated to 34-35 deg C. POPPY COLLECTORS The New Brighton Returned and Services Association is asking for volunteer collectors for the annual poppy day appeal on Friday and Saturday. Donations are used to support current and former service men and women – including the police – and their dependents, living in the community where the funds are raised. Anybody who is able to help collect can contact Bill Lochrie on 021 040 3511.

who are currently in year 4, 5 and 6 to have benefitted.” It will be mid-2020 before the school moves to its new location. “Having a site and date is way better than where we have been. It’s an amazing opportunity; we will really benefit from schools that have gone before us, that have built modern learning environments.” Burwood Park was another option that the board looked at, as was rebuilding the school on

the existing site. The Shirley Boys site was considered the best option as it is central to the current catchment area, and there is enough room and flexibility to provide for future growth. “The gym and hard court surfaces could be part of the new Banks Avenue School. It is on existing public transport routes. It will be an empty site, so construction can continue without impacting on learning,”


the board said in a statement. The school will look into changing its name closer to the shift. When Shirley Boys and Avonside Girls’ High School merge campuses at the QE II site, Ferndale School will also join them. A smaller satellite version of the Merivale-based special education school will be set up on the QE II campus which is due to open in 2019.

PLAYGROUND LEASE Family for Life Trust has applied to the city council for a 20-year lease on a parcel of land known as Aranui Playground in Merrington Cr. The trust wants to open a community-based pre-school on the site with a strong Pacifica theme. It already operates two pre-schools in the Aranui area.

Your Local Views Voices of the future Jessica Tater lives in South New Brighton and has been a volunteer at the Youth Alive Trust for several years. The 15-year-old, who attends Cashmere High School, argues for the value of a youth voice in community decision-making The voice of our youth is the voice of our future. It is unquestionably important and necessary in local community. Young people are the most effective medium of change, they always have been throughout history. YOUTH AWARD: Jessica Tater (fourth from left), with a group of fellow volunteers from the Youth Alive Trust. The volunteers received recognition for their work at the first ever Youth Canterbury Awards last year.

When I grow up I will put my faith in the younger generation, because they will see this world through fresh eyes and have the motivation to not remain complacent in times of hardship or controversy. As we grow up we tend to lose our ability to question the world and reality. Young people, however, speak “straight up” and call it like we see it, we’re not afraid to ask the big questions. We have the passion and the voice to bring about positive change for the future because it

directly affects us. Last year I represented youth on the judging panel of the city council’s Tiny Huts competition where I saw the tangible implications of my opinions. I learnt how to express my requests effectively and consider their validity in a real life context. These skills encourage longterm participation and contribution in society. The benefits of giving youth a voice in local community will be evident when we later use our voices to make change on a national and global scale. Post-earthquakes on the eastside, our young people have shown we are adaptable and have learnt to adjust to a constantly changing physical and social environment. Six years on and our seaside community is still only accessible through munted roads, detours and a red zone that gives people every reason to stay away. But if you look past the stigmas you will find a coastal gem, full of resilient young innovators with ideas and solutions that need to be heard. So give us a voice and you will not be disappointed.

A third of the donations given to the eastern suburbs following the February 22, 2011, earthquake have been spent Jo Maraki – Does this mean the kids of eastern suburbs get free entry, free swimming lessons? A significant proportion of these kids’ families will not have the means and/or transport to regularly access it. Was this the intent of those that tagged the funding to use it this way? Who will it benefit and when? Marie Lynch – I hope it is actually spent in the east for the children and not funnelled in to other projects. Brighton needs things to happen there, that is the east. Gemma Stevenson –  Kids of the east side that went through the quakes aren’t going to be kids by the time they do something with that money.

Kaylene Watson – If the council go ahead with this I wonder how they will feel when the dirty little sods soils the new shelter, like they soiled my yard in front of my garage when I owned the front flat. Would like see the money used more wisely really and people need to wear more clothing at that stop. Ann Carey – What does along with mean? Is that an extra $500 for the lights. How much of this money is allocated to the actual building of the facility and how much is allocated to the paper trail. Mind boggling.

Trevor Walmsley – Okay but how many dollars are left? Bus stops next to Eastgate Shopping Centre will be upgraded after patrons complained they were not getting the same service as other areas

Sculpture may be ready to welcome godwits „„ By Sarla Donovan SOUTH BRIGHTON’S Kuaka/ Godwit sculpture could be installed in the spring. A fund to create and install the sculpture has raised $25,500 after receiving a $12,000 boost from the Rata Foundation. Fundraising for the $30,000 project has been ongoing after the Coastal-Burwood Community Board contributed an initial $12,000 from the city council’s discretionary fund towards the project. The South New Brighton Residents’ Association came up with the idea more than a year ago. The association wanted to celebrate the bird’s connection with the Avon/Heathcote Estuary by installing a sculpture at the entrance to the suburb. It has commissioned the work from South Brighton artist Bon Suter. Association spokesman Séamus O’Cromtha said it was now “very close” to reaching its goal. Mr O’Cromtha said they were asking people in the community to donate. “If everyone puts in a couple of bucks we’ll get there.” The sculpture is to go on a

Coastal Ward city councillor David East said he was still waiting on designs for the foundations of the sculpture, which were taking “longer than anticipated.” Once that was done, the project could go through the consenting process, he said.

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 reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s ability to absorb it declining

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
