New mower for red zone volunteer „„ By Sarla Donovan BRYAN FAIRBAIRN’S pretty happy with his new $9000 mower. He maintains 9ha of red zone land and this is the third mower he’s been through since starting more than three years ago. “I’ve gone up to a 54in John Deere. I wanted the next size up but it’s $20,000 and we’re retired so I’ve got to be reasonable.” Mr Fairbairn and his wife Colleen spend hours each day mowing and tidying the land along New Brighton Rd so it looks like a park. •Turn to page 5

„„ By Sarla Donovan THE PRINCIPALS of Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ High Schools are concerned that families across the east retain the choice of a single-sex education, regardless of whether they live in the zone. The two schools are likely to share a zone when they co-locate to new premises in 2019. Both schools are to be rebuilt at QE II Park after their existing sites were damaged in the 2011 earthquakes. Their boards are currently working with each other and the Ministry of Education to try and thrash out a new, shared zone. Avonside Girls’ High School principal Sue Hume said while the zone needed to give access to those close to the new campus, it was important to preserve the choice of single-sex education for families right across the east. She said the school had always taken a significant portion of students from out of zone. “Historically we provide services for families in the east and we want to continue to give that choice to families across the east of the city. •Turn to page 4

Tuesday May 9 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

BRIGHTON residents have every reason to be angry about rubbish being dumped on footpaths. At a time when the area is looking to get out of the doldrums, some people are turning Oram Ave and nearby Hood, Rodney and Shackleton Sts into an eyesore (see page 5). They’re the couldn’t careless types who dump unwanted household goods on the footpath in the hope someone else will clean it up. They’re the sort of people who don’t mow their lawns and treat their neighbours with contempt. So if you happen to see someone dumping rubbish on the footpath and you have your cellphone handy, film or photograph them and send to sarla.donovan@starmedia.kiwi and we’ll think about whether we should do a Smile You’re On Candid Camera-type thing in Pegasus Post and our website www.star.kiwi – Barry Clarke

Pool allowed to reopen

„„ By Sarla Donovan THE CENTRAL New Brighton School community pool looks set to reopen next summer after gaining permission to occupy the site for the next two years. The pool was to be demolished after the school merged with Freeville and North New Brighton schools in 2015. The Ministry of Education wanted to demolish the pool without consulting the community, which caused Tim Baker outrage, and Strategic Urban Rejuvenation Force asked the ministry if it could investigate whether the pool could be saved. It decided keeping the pool was viable, but only temporarily until the replacement QE II Park was completed. The SURF Community Trust this week received a draft licence to occupy from the ministry, until April 2019. It now needs $20,000 to bring the pool up to safety standards and expects running costs to be around $40,000 a year. The trust is also looking for volunteers to help maintain and

board member Tim Baker said it would be a cost-effective asset for the community which would be well used. “When North New Brighton School pool was opened up to the community during summer months, hundreds of people used it every day.” Meanwhile, nine empty classrooms at Central New Brighton School will shortly be available for community use. ReNew Brighton is asking for community groups and individuals to register their interest in residency at what it is called the Old School Community Hub.

In Brief BURWOOD AFC HOME Burwood Association Football Club will continue using Clare Park after its lease was renewed by the Coastal-Burwood Community Board last week. Clare Park has been the club’s home ground since it was first started in 1972. The new lease of 33 years will be broken into three terms of 11 years. NEW PUMP STATION Close to $2 million will be spent fixing one of the city’s major pump stations to restore prequake capacity and replace ageing equipment. The city council said the money would maximise the life of pump station 205 on New Brighton Rd, which provides land drainage and flood protection to the nearby area by pumping water from Horseshoe Lake into the Avon River during storm events. SHOP FRONT MURALS A former tattoo parlour will be the first shop front in New Brighton to feature windows painted with scenes from the suburb’s heyday in the 1950s. BrighterNewBrighton organiser Daniel Manchester came up with the idea of covering shop windows and doors with scenes of bustling activity inside. The first building owner gave agreement last week and Mr Manchester said he was planning to recreate a bike shop.

DAMAGED: Avonside Girls’ High received significant damage in the Canterbury earthquakes. The school will be rebuilt on a new campus at QEII, along with Shirley Boys’ High.

Veterinary practice

OUR VISIT TO UC DAVIS, CALIFORNIA Steve, Isaac and myself recently spent time at UC Davis, the #1 Veterinary school in the world. For 2 years running it has received this huge accolade and when you are there you can see why. It operates and is the size of a mini CHCH Public hospital. They are a teaching hospital as well as seeing referral patients and first opinion clients. Their specialities include 24/7 emergency and critical care, cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, oncology and surgery. They were originally set up to see 5500 patients per year, last year they saw 50,000 patients. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and enthusiastic about being part of this college. It had a wonderful vibe... Isaac was hooked. Approximately 140 students get accepted yearly in to Davis, with around 10% being male. It cost about US$45,000 for tuition( $64000 NZL) and then there is living costs on top of that. Vet students on average come out owing US $135,000. These students have spent the previous 4 years obtaining an excellent undergraduate degree just to get accepted, majoring in science and maths. There are 30 colleges of Veterinary Medicine in the US and each year about 3000 students get accepted. About 40% of students who apply get accepted somewhere. In your 3rd year you start to branch off in your area of interest – either companion animal, equine, mixed practice or production animals. After their 4 year degree at Davis, most will apply for 1-2 year internship at another Veterinary College to further their skills in an area they are interested in. Davis don’t offer internships. Our freshman (first year) guide loves dentistry so her plans are to become a specialist in this field. After her internship, she then needs to apply for a residency at one of the 30 colleges, which could be anything from 3-5 years more study!! These are hard to come by, and you have to be the best of the bunch, although a Vet degree from UC Davis stands you in good steed. So to be a specialist in your field in the US takes between 13-15 years, and the debt these students accrue is massive, a few get scholarships, but most have to pay. I met a vet in her 40’s who still has a student loan. Steve spent 2 days tagging along with ophthalmology specialists, residents and students on rotation. First and second year students get at least 2 weeks of ophthalmology per year ( 27 years ago when I studied at Massey, 1 day was dedicated to “eyes”). He really enjoyed the collegial discussions on cases, sussing out all the latest equipment, chatting to the students and doing rounds with them. Steve came away pleased with his skills

School zone concern and expertise in ophthalmology, although a few pieces of equipment caught his eye. Isaac and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour tour of the entire faculty. Isaac loved the exotics hospital where they house and treat the reptiles, birds, rabbits, turtles etc. We also visited their raptor centre, home to rescued birds of prey that can no longer see or fly. He also enjoyed watching elbow arthroscopy on a Golden Retriever from a viewing room. He could see them cutting and sucking out torn cartilage from the video screen. What amazed me was the amount of people in theatre – 9 in all, including the chief surgeon, 2 residents, 3 anesthetists and 4th year students. There were so many people milling around keenly observing. They do MRI and CT here and even have a massive MRI machine that can fit a horse into. The most expensive patient to date was a spoodle who underwent dialysis for 18 months, visiting the hospital twice weekly to have all the toxins removed from her blood. Her final account was US$140,000! The most expensive piece of equipment is a linear accelerator used for radiation treatment for cancer patients costing a little over 1 million. Apparently one of the only surgical procedures NOT performed here at Davis is renal transplants as when attempted on cats over 10 years ago, the survival rate was poor. A handful of colleges perform renal transplants in cats including the Pennsylvania and Georgia College of Vet medicine. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Davis and I thought how amazing, fun and expensive it would be to be a student now studying vet medicine at UC Davis. The students we met were just so absorbed, very happy and grateful to be at this world class faculty. I came out thinking I am so in the right profession. -Dr Michele McMaster

load to the dump, plus tonnage costs of $200 a tonne. Mrs Crow said she had never caught anyone in the act. “I imagine they’re midnight marauders,” she said. Couches, beds, bikes and televisions make regular appearances. Mrs Crow believed the problem could be put down to a combination of laziness, the cost of taking things to the dump and a perception that New Brighton is a “derelict place anyway, so why not.”

She used the city council’s Snap Send Solve app to report incidents, and it usually took three to five days to collect the dumped rubbish. The city council might also need to look at alternatives, she said. “I’m originally from Toronto and they have drop-off locations where, once a month, you can take your televisions or couches and it doesn’t cost.” The city council spokeswoman said there were no plans to introduce a kerbside collection.

•From page 1 “I’m down there whenever it’s not raining” he said. He thinks red zone land should be kept tidy and park-like until decisions are made on its future. “We wanted to make it nice for people going past or walking through. They often stop and say thank you. They appreciate it. And people who used to live there come back and are very grateful. They left because they had to but they come back because they have connections to the area, they got married or planted a special tree there.” The city council pays for his fuel but nothing else. “We’re not allowed to put soil down or plant anything.” Burwood ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone asked city council staff in April if they could provide Mr and Mrs Fairbairn with one red and four green waste bins to assist them in their work. He is still waiting to hear back on whether this is possible. Mr Fairbairn, 69, said the work kept him out of his wife’s hair. “I don’t play golf or go to the pub. It gives me an awful lot of comfort and pleasure.”

Personalising learning A recent educational conference in Singapore led Chisnallwood Intermediate school principal Justin Fields to reflect on the future of learning During the last week of term 1, I went to Singapore with the Canterbury intermediate principals to visit some local schools and attend an international learning conference. In one of my recent newsletters I highlighted a visit we had from Princess Elizabeth School in Singapore and I was able to

reciprocate and visit them. The principal and staff who visited Chisnallwood told me that they were extremely impressed by how we personalise the learning, our extension classes, our collaborative teaching practices, the new mechatronics/electronics/robotics programme and the fact that we offer computer science. Education in Singapore is very

Keep cooking under control in the kitchen

traditional with large class sizes, students sitting in rows and lessons being predominantly teacher-led. I was surprised by the lack of IT use in classrooms. The great news is they want to change, but the burning question for them is how? I believe this is one of the reasons why Singapore hosted the international conference – they wanted to challenge the status quo and do things differently. This is not to say that their system is broken, but rather that they want to do things better for the students, to nurture creativity and personalise the learning. The reflections for me were firstly, that no matter where you are in the world, we all want the best for our students; secondly, that what we are doing in New Zealand and particularly at Chisnallwood is what we need to be doing, and finally, that networking and sharing ideas improves outcomes for all. It was an enlightening trip and I look forward to implementing the conference learnings as “we continue to challenge the margins of time and explore what is beyond” at Chisnallwood. Kia Kaha

„„ Mark Thomas, fire risk management officer I KNOW I’ve repeated the advice about looking when cooking dozens of times over the years and it looks very much like it’s never going to cease completely. But every now and then I despair a bit.  Like on Wednesday when within three-and-a-half-hours fire trucks responded to three different cooking incidents.  A house completely filled with smoke from a forgotten pie in the microwave in Sockburn was followed by a pot on the stove, again filling the house in Kotare St and a further incident in Bryndwr where smoke inhalation was the result for the elderly occupants.  Any of these could have been much worse.  A life or a house gone.  But all of them were preventable.  Stay in the kitchen. The smell of burning in your home can be frightening for anyone.  More so if you’re blind.

The occupant of a house in Addington thankfully did the exact right thing, again on Wednesday, by phoning 111 and having the local crew there within minutes. Turned out to be a tea towel smouldering on an element.  The potential here was a bit frightening. I’ve not mentioned arson here for a long time.  It’s still occurring but the removal of most of the empty houses in the red zone has made it less visible or newsworthy.  A drum of diesel spread along the road in the early hours last Sunday in Wigram was lit and left by whatever morons thought it was clever.  They’re still out there.

Our People Principal of change management Banks Avenue School principal Toni Burnside recently announced the school’s move to a new site in 2020. She talks to Sarla Donovan about managing change and her time as a volunteer medic in India. Are you Christchurch born and bred? I grew up in Aranui, went to Aranui Primary, Chisnallwood Intermediate and then Aranui High, so my whole life I’ve lived in the east side and worked here as well. I feel like New Brighton/ Northshore is a bit of a secret. It doesn’t have the best reputation property-wise but we’ve got the beach behind us, the forest next to us and it’s just magical. So I’ve never wanted to go to any other part of the city. You were principal at Central New Brighton School during the merger with Freeville and North New Brighton schools. What was that like? That was gutting for the community because the school was really starting to hum – it had a lovely family feel to it. We only had about 130 children, there was great achievement, lots of lovely social things happening for the children, we had a really great bunch of families who were committed to the school. You could see that we were on a good journey so it was absolutely heart-wrenching, especially because the community had already been through so much and the school was pivotal in keeping them together and giving them that sense of normality. So it was the wrong thing at the wrong time for the community. You also lost your home after the quakes and now you’re

managing the rebuild of Banks Avenue School. You must be getting good at managing change? It’s actually something I like, the change process, and something I think I’m really strategic at. Being able to see that vision of where you want to go, but then have everybody playing a part in getting there. One of my favourite quotes is along the lines of “if you want to build a ship you don’t just drum up the people to gather the wood and divide the work and give orders. You’ve got to get them to yearn for the vast and endless sea and then the ship will get built regardless”. Once you know where you’re going, people are on board and the basic jobs get done. You seem like someone who’s got their feet on the ground.

What do you attribute that to? I had a really bad speech impediment and went to speech therapy from age four till age nine. There are touchstones in your life and that was a big one for me, especially as a teacher. I was labelled a ‘dumb’ child, sitting in the bottom group of everything because they couldn’t understand a thing I was saying. It made me conscious never to do that and it’s made me a whole lot more empathetic towards children. I like people and children who are out of the box. I was always the kid at high school who had the coloured socks or the coloured hair, not quite willing to confirm and fit in, and I like that quirkiness with children and celebrate that difference. And my dad was really quirky. He was 77 and still rollerblading

around Christchurch with a mohawk and a pony tail down the back and his ski poles to keep him balanced on his rollerblades, and he was just an optimist. I can’t remember him being sad or anybody ever saying a bad word about him. You live with your daughter who’s all grown up and a doctor now. What’s that like? I am absolutely blessed. I was coming back from Greta Valley, Mercedes had just qualified as a doctor and had enough money for a mortgage so we decided we’d buy a house. We’ve had five and a half years together, which has just been delightful. She and her partner have been looking for a house for the two of them to buy and, on Sunday night, it was confirmed that they’ve got one, which is fantastic. I’ve got one more month and they’ll move into their new house, which is about six minutes up the road. My other daughter is in Southshore so I’m really lucky that both my daughters are so close and so family-oriented. They have very different occupations. Yes, Mercedes is a doctor, and Paris was painting houses during the earthquakes and then was working with animals and, at the moment, is thinking of going into real estate. She did think about teaching for all of five seconds. Would you encourage her into that? I absolutely would, but I think the children of teachers are well aware of the long hours; it’s not the glamorous job you could potentially think it was. You take those kids home with you at night. I know my girls could probably reel off 10 or 20 names of children over the years who have had a special part to play in our family. How would you describe your parenting philosophy? You can never love a child too much. But you do have to do battle. I vividly remember

having a battle with Paris when she was about 16, and I said I’m going to take your cellphone off you as a consequence. I got verbal abuse from her so there I am in the middle of the night, commando-style, sneaking into her room and getting under her pillow to get her cellphone and the next day just smiling and saying “when we’ve resolved this you’ll get your phone back”. You do have your battles but, boy, it’s worth it – children need boundaries just to know where they lie. You were a volunteer medic in India – what was that like? Mind-blowing and scary. Mercedes got to do two overseas placements in her final year of medicine and she chose Edinburgh and India. So I caught up with her in Edinburgh, and we tiki-toured through Europe together and ended up in India. She was working in an outreach clinic in Calcutta. I turned up on the first day just to see where she was and they handed me a needle to start doing injections. I shook my head and said, “no, I’m a teacher not a doctor.” They said, “yes, but you can do injections . . . and you can clean the wounds.” So my job was swabbing these horrific injuries, infections that had almost gone gangrenous. You’d be cleaning them out and big hunks of skin would fall away. I was putting on antiseptic cream, which here in New Zealand you might put on to a minor wound, and that’s what we were treating these really serious injuries with. What’s your next travel adventure? Next year I’m going to be 60 so we’re going to Las Vegas. It’s an open invitation to friends and family. A week in Vegas and a week in Hawaii on the way home. The girls are coming with their partners and a good bunch of friends, and who knows, one or both of the girls might even get married while we’re there; that would really be exciting.

Forgotten figure „„ By Sarla Donovan A BOOK about a forgotten figure in Canterbury’s history has finally hit bookstore shelves. After five years of research and writing, Shirley Boys’ High School archivist Colin Amodeo has completed Tracking Captain Thomas, a journey in search of the unacknowledged founder of Canterbury. Mr Amodeo said few people knew about the Captain Joseph Thomas whose name is commemorated in the track up Sumner Valley. A soldier in Burma and the Caribbean, Captain Thomas arrived in New Zealand in 1840, exploring the east coast from Port Nicholson to Hawkes Bay. In 1848, he was appointed as the chief surveyor for the Canterbury Association, to choose a site where a new settlement could be established. He chose the site for Christchurch the following year and mapped out some of its features, including Hagley Park and the four city squares. He worked for two years developing Lyttelton and Christchurch before the settlers came, but once they arrived he was criticised for unfinished work. Mr Amodeo said the towns were not what the settlers were

CASTING CALL: Children at a casting call the last time The Sound of Music toured New Zealand. A new production is set to tour in September and October this year and producers are looking for young singers to play the von Trapp children. ​

MODEL HISTORY: Colin Amodeo holds a model of the house at Lyttelton which Captain Joseph Thomas thought would be his.

expecting. He said the settlers believed Captain Thomas was responsible for the unfinished settlement, including the lack of churches and schools. The Captain Thomas walkway in Sumner and Thomas St in Linwood are named after him, but he is otherwise unrecognised. Mr Amodeo began work on the biography in 2012, fitting it in around his responsibilities at Shirley Boys’ High School. Mr Amodeo said although he was relieved to finish, he had already begun his next book. “It’s about the first resident magistrate in Akaroa, John Watson. Like Thomas, a lot of the material is unknown,” he said.

Sound of Music singers wanted PRODUCERS ARE looking for young people who can sing, dance and act for an upcoming nationwide tour of The Sound of Music. Two teams of children are needed to play the six youngest von Trapp children – Gretl, Marta, Brigitta, Kurt, Louisa and Friedrich. Hundreds of youngsters are expected to apply for the tour that will take in 20 cities in September and October this year. The children will be paid for their roles as it is a fully

professional production under the direction of former Shortland St star Geraldine Brophy. Children must be at least 10 years of age and can be of any nationality or ethnicity. Boys will need unbroken voices to be able to sing in the required vocal range. Auditions will be held on Saturday, May 20. •Email benmcdonaldassistant@ gmail.com to apply for a time.

Southshore triathlete in NZ squad „„ By Gordon Findlater SOUTHSHORE triathlete Ari Graham will test herself against the world’s best after being named in the New Zealand team to compete at the ITU world championships in the Netherlands. Graham, 18, is the only Canterbury athlete in the team of six juniors (under-19) who will compete in September. She will be joined by Hannah Knighton, Waikato/Tauranga, Ainsley Thorpe, Trent Dodds, Dan Hoy, Auckland, and Janus Staufenberg, Wanaka. Mark Elliott, Triathlon New Zealand’s high performance director, is excited by the talent being demonstrated in this team. “The selected athletes span across the country from the top of Auckland to the deep south in Wanaka,” said Elliott. “It’s exciting to see the depth of the athletes coming from different parts of the country, as well as the coaches who are guiding our current and future champions.” Over the summer, Graham competed in the national junior series, which is contested between the top under-19-year-olds in the country over five events. Graham not only won the series, she took out all five events.

SPORTS Shirley aim for second win in first XI league

SQUAD: Ari Graham (middle) will be joined by Ainsley Thorpe and Hannah Knighton in the New Zealand junior triathlon team. ​

She is also a former age group middle distance and cross country champion. After competing in a couple of school triathlons, she made the decision late last year to dedicate

her time to triathlon. She is currently training fulltime after finishing school at St Andrew’s College. The junior squad is the first of three New Zealand teams to be

announced with the under-23s and elite squad selections to be made in early August. The world championships will take place in Rotterdam from September 14-17.

„„ By Andrew King SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School will look to keep their winning ways intact when they face defending champions Lincoln High in the Connetics schools premier first XI competition’s second round tomorrow. Coach Chris Needle said Lincoln will be a big test. “They have a number of players who play first team football with Nomads’ Mainland Premier League team,” he said. Shirley recorded a 4-2 win over Riccarton in the opening round. Needle said good passing and possession followed once they had settled into the game. However, he would like to see that from the first whistle tomorrow. “We will be looking for a more concentrated start to the game with good discipline across the field,” he said. Shirley players to watch tomorrow include captain Aaron Browne in an attacking midfield role and striker Shaun Regaldo who, as a year 11 student, is an exciting prospect at all levels of the game, Needle said.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook over a very low heat for about 20 minutes until it’s soft and barely coloured. Add the parsnip and apple, then cook for five minutes, stirring frequently. Add the stock and simmer gently for about 45 minutes. Allow to cool a little, then purée using a stick blender or food processor. Reheat to serve, adding the cream and salt and pepper to taste. To make the parsnip chips, peel the parsnip, then use the peeler to make long, thin strips. Heat about 3cm of vegetable oil in a pan, then add the parsnip strips in batches, frying until golden.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200 deg C, slice the garlic in half, drizzle with a little olive oil and roast until the cloves are soft, about 30 minutes. Add the watercress, turn off the heat and cover. Leave for three minutes to wilt the watercress then season and purée. Ladle into warm bowls and top with the roasted garlic gloves and crumbled feta.

Denture technicians keep abreast of industry developments As registered members of the New Zealand Dental Council, Ryan Carlton and his fellow technicians at Dentures Plus in Innes Road are required to undertake verified training at various courses every year, to upskill and keep abreast of new developments in the industry. “For example, our technicians Thomas Gu and Nicole Yee will be attending a two-day course later this year on the fitting of first-time dentures,” Ryan says. In addition, Nicole has recently spent four weeks in India as part of a course she is undertaking on maxilo facial work, which deals with artificial eyes, ears and noses. “This is a service we may potentially offer in the future,” Ryan says. Ryan himself has recently returned from the International Dental Show, which was held in Cologne, Germany. “It’s the largest trade show in the world for the industry, with manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world showcasing their products. There were over 2300 stands – it was really eyeopening.” Ryan says he was particularly interested in how digital technology is being incorporated into dentistry, for example 3D printing being used at different stages of denture manufacture such as the crown and bridge.

“It’s still in the very early stages, and it needs more development, but that’s where it’s heading,” Ryan says. He believes that in the future, people that make and fit dentures will be seen as architects rather than technicians, with patients being able to download the pattern for their dentures the architect has designed on computer, and print them on a 3D machine. In the meantime, he emphasises the importance of keeping dentures clean. Dentures Plus offers a full range of products for denture cleaning including denture cleaners, brushes and denture baths for soaking the dentures. Ryan particularly recommends Caldent denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and effectively removes stains, calculus and plaque. “It works wonders,” he says. “Years of stains and plaque can be removed with this product.” It can be purchased through the Dentures Plus website, www. denturesplus.co.nz, for delivery anywhere in Christchurch and throughout the country. Dentures Plus, 396 Innes Road, is open Monday to Thursday 8am-5pm and Friday 8am-2pm. To make an appointment for a consultation on denture fitting or repair, phone 385 5517.

Dentures Plus also offers a full range of products for denture cleaning.

New and quality used tyres for most makes & models If you need new tyres for your vehicle, JCM Direct is the place to go.

This family-run, independent tyre business in Birmingham Drive specialises in new and quality second-hand tyres. The business is owned by husband and wife Athol and Julie Hurst, with Julie being the one who runs the day-to-day operation and fits the tyres for customers, which is unusual in the male-dominated industry, she says. They stock a large selection of new tyres from a wide range of suppliers to suit your wheelbarrow, car, van, 4wd or trailer. “There are very few brands we can’t do,” Julie says. “We also have an excellent selection of quality second-hand 4WD tyres. Other services JCM Direct offers include puncture repairs, supply and fitting of new and second-hand alloy wheels, wheel alignments, replacement factory steel rims, rim repairs and lights. “We also specialise in old rims, from the 1930s to the 1970s, which people purchase for caravans and old trailers. The modern rims won’t fit those,” Julie says. “JCM Direct also do a lot of matching rims and tyres, so customers don’t have to buy a complete new set if only one needs
