Dancer to join national academy „„ By Julia Evans A ST MARGARET’S College student who has been highland dancing since she was three has been selected as part of the national academy. Annabel Watts, 16, danced her way into a spot as one of the youngest members of the New Zealand Academy of Highland and National Dancing. “There are a few younger

people but there are a lot around 30,” she said. The auditions took place in the city at the beginning of April, which Annabel said was perfect having them “at home.” Annabel will join the company for its 2017 and 2018 season. “I could’ve done it last year but I decided school was more important,” she said. Beginning with workshops and conferences around the

country, Annabel will also perform at the Virginia Tattoo arts festival. Now she has to focus on practising, which she does at least three times a week. Her love for highland dance started more than 13 years ago. “When I was three I liked the bagpipes so mum sent me down the road to join dance classes,” she said. And she has never looked back.

Although she did say it was a bit unusual to love the bagpipes any time let alone at such a young age. Annabel also recently passed the advanced highland exam, which is the highest a dancer can achieve, and is qualified to teach. The national academy will have its first session after the New Zealand Highland and National Dancing Championships in July.

„„ By Julia Evans RED LIGHT runners are putting primary school pupils at risk. Shirley Primary School, the city council and the police are acting quickly after fears for pupils safety when crossing Shirley Rd. There is a signalised pedestrian crossing outside the school but red light runners have caused seriSandra ous concern. Jamieson Deputy principal Sandra Jamieson said it’s only a matter of time before a pupil is hurt. “It’s not a matter of if someone gets injured. It’s when,” she said. An urgent meeting was held between school staff, city council parking enforcement staff and traffic engineer Penny Gray, members and staff from the Papanui-Innes Community Board, the police and parents last Wednesday to discuss ways to improve safety. •Turn to page 7

Tuesday June 13 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE WORLD is a rapidly changing place, and today we report on new technology at St George’s. It’s called 4k. If you’re not sure what that actually means watch Hunger Games or Spectre – it’s the same technology used in those Hollywood movies. The technology will be used in the hospital’s five new operating theatres. What the technology does is produce a resolution four times as higher than the traditional full HD, making it possible to zoom in on the smallest details and magnify them. That will allow surgeons to watch what they are doing live on a screen during keyhole surgery, and zoom in as they work to see right into the individual blood vessels. We’ve come along way since Space Invaders and PlayStation. – Barry Clarke

News 4K technology for St George’s FROM HOLLYWOOD to the operating theatre – technology used in blockbuster movies is now being used to help Christchurch surgeons during operations. The 4k imaging technology has been incorporated in the five new operating theatres built as part of the redevelopment at St George’s Hospital. The technology has been used to film big screen movies, including the Hunger Games and Spectre. It produces a resolution four times higher than the traditional Full HD, making it possible to zoom in on the smallest details and magnify them. That will allow surgeons to watch what they are doing live on a screen during keyhole surgery, and zoom in as they work to see right to the individual blood vessels. Hospital chief executive Greg Brooks said the technology would directly benefit patients. “The redevelopment has provided us with a key opportunity to invest in worldleading innovation to provide our patients with superior care,” he said.

Lions club celebrates &

McMaster Heap

Veterinary practice

Air rifle injury in A cAt Chanel, a beautiful 17 month old Birman arrived home late one Sunday evening with a profusely bleeding wound on her back. Her very concerned owners rushed her to the After hours clinic where she was placed on oxygen, given intravenous fluids and pain relief. The xray taken showed Chanel had been shot with two air rifle pellets – one was sitting in her abdomen and one in her left hind leg. She was also slightly anemic due to blood loss. Miraculously she was still alive. Chanel was operated on to remove the hind leg pellet that night but it was felt too risky to open her up and remove the abdominal pellet due to ongoing blood loss. Thankfully the pellets missed her vital organs and spine.

and about 60mls of blood was drawn from him to give to Chanel over a couple of hours. The donor cat has their red cell levels checked and must be Feline Aids (FIV) negative. The following day Chanel appeared brighter and happier. We decided to wait a further week before operating to make sure her blood levels were stable and that she was producing good numbers of red cells on her own. The repeated ultrasound and xray showed that thankfully her left kidney appeared normal however the bullet had slightly moved.

Chanel arrived at McMaster & Heap Vet Practice on Monday morning in a fairly critical condition. She was closely monitored and her pain medication with a fentanyl patch provided her with continuous relief – being shot would be quite sore! Chanel had regular blood tests in house to check her vital organs and to be sure her anemia wasn’t worsening. Unfortunately she was becoming more anemic. Kirsty performed an abdominal ultrasound and took chest xrays to check for free blood indicating an active bleed. There was also some concern about potential damage to her left kidney from the pellet location. Thankfully through all this her appetite was great! Prior to her second surgery, it was decided that Chanel would benefit from a blood transfusion to help her red blood cell levels. She was blood typed ( Type A) and found to be a match for Kirsty’s cat “Wolfie”. Wolfie was sedated

Chanel’s surgery proceeded without a hitch. The bullet was successfully removed with very little trauma, from just behind her left kidney. That afternoon she was rolling around, playing in her cage, able to be discharged from our hospital. We continued with pain relief and one week later Chanel was near normal. This would have been a completely different story had her abdominal organs been penetrated or her spine shattered. Thanks to her owner’s rapid response, Chanel’s life was saved and she’s never looked back. Also a bonus that her dedicated owners have pet insurance. Dr Michele McMaster

„„ By Julia Evans THE CHRISTCHURCH North Lions Club has marked a significant milestone. At the end of May members from the club gathered for a luncheon to celebrate the 50th anniversary. It comes in the same year as centenary celebrations for the Lions Club internationally. Early members from the 60s and 70s joined the current members for a celebratory luncheon. “It was a great day, there were at least 65 people there,” club president Bruce Greenaway said. It was good seeing former members of the club join with us in marking our 50 years of service to the community he said. Over the course of its history, the branch has raised more than $250,000. Many charitable organisations, as well as deserving individuals, have benefited from the quarter of a million dollars raised over the 50 years, Mr Greenaway said. The club has funded

projects such as the Orana Wildlife Park’s lion den and enclosure. It also built and donated to the Salvation Army a purpose-fitted caravan for use in emergency situations. “All the former members

gave generously of their time and effort to help those in need. We are now hopeful that at this milestone in the club’s history, more will come forward to join our thinning ranks,” Mr Greenaway said.

Police presence stops fires „„ By Andrew King ARSON ATTACKS in Burnside and Ilam have stopped after police increased patrols around the area. Over a number of weeks, there have been a series of deliberately lit fires in the area, with wheelie bins, a car and for sale sign set alight – some close enough to scorch Stephan the exterior of ocMcDaniel cupied homes. Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said in response to the fire, police have increased patrols in the area in an effort James to catch who is Wallace lighting the fires. “At this stage, we have no clear suspects, but we are looking,” he said. He said while there appears to have been a halt in the attacks, police will continue to keep an eye on the area. “The extra patrols will stay in place for now,’ he said. Bins on Greers Rd and Westburn Tce were set on fire three weeks ago, prompting police to dispatch a dog unit to try and track the offender or offenders. None have been found.

Good riddance trees „„ By Julia Evans

Burnside resident James Wallace’s bin was set alight about a month ago and scorched the side of his house while his children were asleep. He said he had not heard of any more events around his area. “I haven’t seen them, but I’ve been told there are extra

patrols and a dog unit on standby,” he said. • Anyone with information about the fires should phone 363 7400. Alternatively, information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

SOME RESIDENTS are not sad to see eight blue gum trees around Bishopdale Village Mall felled. Burnside’s Bill Willoughby, 79, said he was pleased the trees had finally got the chop. “The city council have done the right thing, they were getting a bit scraggy,” he said. As a regular shopper at the mall, he said it had really tidied the place up. The trees were felled recently

because of their poor health, structural condition and the risk they presented to the public. The Bishopdale Business Association expressed concern after a limb fell and wrote off a parked car last year. Debris from the trees was also an additional burden for businesses in the mall causing regular maintenance issues. Appropriate replacement trees will be planted in consultation with mall businesses. •Soap Box, page 7

Ode to the blue gums

Papanui-Innes Community Board member John Stringer writes about the loss of trees in the community With sadness I observed the felling of the Bishopdale blue gums. I regularly use both the larger Northlands Shopping Centre and the little Bishopdale Village Mall. The rank of tall australian blue gums ringing the village mall car park was a feature I enjoyed. As well as the trees, we recently lost the Mitre 10 at the mall, which has shifted further down Harewood Rd. Trees are important to a community, which is why we have protection orders and bylaws governing some trees.  The Bishopdale blue gums were on private property so, in one sense, they can do as they please, but as trees are an important aesthetic to any community is it worth extending the reach of bylaws to cover not just historic trees but also the impact on a community of the removal of large treescapes? There is a lot of tree removal

going on in our community. With all the change in our city and roadworks strangling our arterials, the continuity of arboreal landscapes is important for psychological well-being. Too much change all at once brings a feeling of dislocation and being wrenched from stability and familiarity. When I moved from a large property in Papanui several years ago, the owners cut down every single tree on what was one of the last un-subdivided residential properties in the area – a remnant quarter acre section. Down came the red peaches, the figs, a tall native, blueberries, pears and a huge magnolia that was such a feature of the local community.

Up went a tilt slab jammed in behind an older house. As the Bishopdale blue gums toppled, I reflected on Gerard Manly Hopkins’ famous eulogy to Binsey Poplars. “My aspens dear, whose airy cages quelled, Quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun, All felled, felled, are all felled; Of a fresh and following folded rank . . . O if we but knew what we do.” RIP Bishopdale blue gums – you will be missed.

SCHOOLS

MUSIC: Independent Schools of New Zealand Board chairwoman Heather McRae (left), with Janet Kingsbury and Sandra Hastie at the awards ceremony.

Rangi’s ‘Mozart’ gets award A RANGI Ruru Girls’ School teacher has received an award for her outstanding contribution to music. Director of music Janet Kingsbury received the honours award from Independent Schools of New Zealand. She joined Rangi Ruru 14 years ago. Then, following the September 4, 2010, earthquake, she volunteered hundreds of hours to work closely with the campus design team to ensure the music department was successfully rebuilt. At the Independent Schools of New Zealand conference, principal Sandra Hastie said Mrs Kingsbury is an exceptional

music teacher and leader who goes above and beyond what is expected. “Music is a flagship of Rangi Ruru and is revered both within the school and throughout the music community, both locally and around the country.” During a recent performance review, one of her students said: “Apart from Mozart, no one knows more about music than Mrs K.” Dr Hastie said the school is incredibly fortunate to have Mrs Kingsbury as part of the team. She was thrilled that her dedication, talent and hard work had been recognised with this award.

Fendalton pupils learn how the settlers lived Jayden White, Kellan Faulkner and Connie Zhou (above) were among the year 1, 2 and 3 pupils from Fendalton Open Air School who visited Canterbury Museum last week. They learnt about the early settlers and how they lived, worked and played. Ethan Wong (right) and Paige Layton found out what it felt like to wear Victorian clothes, which the children of colonists would have worn.

Tomorrow I will be celebrating the contribution made by the women of Waimakariri electorate to the community and professional sectors at a working luncheon with Hon Amy Adams. I am hosting this event to celebrate the hard work of our local women and to provide an opportunity for them to hear about the personal journeys other women have travelled towards turning their vision into a life path. The luncheon is an opportunity to network, make connections and be inspired by the experiences of others.

I enjoyed great feedback from my Keeping Connected Evening Meetings held last month to be more accessible outside business hours. Transport and roading were topics raised frequently. Thank you to all who attended.

Budget 17 delivered good news for families who will welcome adjustments to tax thresholds, increased Working for Families and assistance with housing costs. The $2 billion package delivers comprehensive support for families that is underlined by our strong economy and wage growth, and reinforces our commitment to supporting our families to get ahead. The return of cruise ships to Lyttelton will benefit local tourism operators. I advocated for our operators whose businesses were affected when the port couldn’t berth cruise ships after the 2011 earthquake, meeting with the Port company, Christchurch City Council and Canterbury Tourism. The return of these liners is going to mean some of our local people can stay in business.

North-west rivals meet

CBHS prepare for St Andrew’s

„„ By Andrew King CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’ High will take on St Bede’s tomorrow in the Connetics first XI football competition. Seventh placed CBHS put six goals past Rangiora last week and will be looking to keep their foot firmly to the floor when they meet sixth placed St Bede’s at 4pm. All games will be at the Christchurch Football Centre. CBHS coach Mick Braithwaite said after a slow start to the season, the team are starting to ramp things up. “The St Bede’s game will be a tough ask. The key for us to get three points is for our defence to continue their impressive record and we start scoring more of the chances we are creating,” he said. St Bede’s played out a 4-4 draw against Riccarton last week to help them retain sixth position on the table. Meanwhile, St Andrew’s will look to continue their winning way when they take on Riccarton at 7.30pm tomorrow. They moved into second position on the table with a solid 2-0 win over Lincoln last week. Burnside will have their work cut out for them when they face off against a rampaging St Thomas squad at 5.45pm. Burnside moved into third position on the table with a hard fought 2-2 draw against Shirley last week. Burnside will have a crack at the Connetics Shield tomorrow night, but will face staunch opposition from St Thomas who defended it for a second time with a 5-1 win over Papanui in round 6. Burnside coach David Williams said the shield challenge has come as a surprise as they have never played for it. Papanui will have a crack against third-placed Lincoln tomorrow at 4pm. •Last week we said Papanui was defeated 3-0 by St Thomas in last year’s fixture. It was Papanui who beat St Thomas 3-0. Points table 1. St Thomas, 12pts; 2. St Andrew’s, 12pts; 3. Lincoln, 11pts; 4. Burnside, 11pts; 5. Cashmere, 10pts; 6. St Bede’s, 10pts; 7. CBHS, 9pts; 8. Riccarton, 7pts; 9. Shirley, 7pts; 10. Middleton, 4pts; 11. Christ’s, 4pts; 12. Papanui, 3pts; 13. Rangiora, 3pts.

SPORTS „„ By Andrew King CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High have a hard week ahead of them with a traditional rival looking to topple their season on Saturday. St Andrew’s will be looking to take points from top-of-thetable CBHS when they meet at the weekend. CBHS manager Rob Smith said it will be a tough game. “This will be a good test for the boys. They are definitely up to it; they love playing the game so the more the better,” he said. CBHS are currently top of the table in the UC Championship after a five try to four win over St Thomas on Saturday. Smith said the St Thomas match was very physical, but he didn’t expect anything less from the men from Middlepark Rd on their club day.

•Today CBHS will host rugby, hockey and football teams from Wellington College in the annual school exchange fixtures.

Rangi take Barwick Shield for first time „„ By Andrew King RANGI RURU’S first XI hockey team have won the Pat Barwick Shield for the first time in the school’s history with a great second half performance against Villa Maria on Friday night. The shield was named after Barwick, a ​former Black Sticks women’s captain from 1971-79, and came into existence in 2014. It is considered the Ranfurly Shield of high school women’s hockey. The first half of the game was a feeling out period at Marist Park. With Rangi slow out of the blocks, they found themselves defending a penalty corner within minutes of the first whistle. They turned it around in the second half, finding the back of the net four times to win the shield off their nearby rivals.

PROUD MOMENT: Pat Barwick (left) presents the shield named after her to winning Rangi Ruru captain Annabelle Wilson.

It was presented to captain Annabelle Wilson by Barwick herself. Rangi director of sport Jo Fogarty said it was a real buzz to

KIDSTUFF

Kids love CASPA!

PLANS: The site plan developed by the Ministry of Works for the proposed new secondary school in the 1970s. The school would have been accessed from Tuckers Rd and by a right of way from Sturrocks Rd. ​

School that never was Chairman of the Papanui Heritage Group Murray Williams writes about the Government’s doomed plan to build ‘Redwood High School’ AS EARLY as 1960 it was accepted by both the Papanui High School Board of Governors and the Department of Education that the rapid increase in the population of the city’s north-west would require the construction of another secondary school in the area.    The site chosen was a 7.7ha block at the western end of Tuckers Rd, approximately 2km from Papanui High School. Most of the land had been “taken by proclamation,” meaning it was acquired under the Public Works Act, which gave the Government the right of compulsory purchase if the land was required for reasons of public interest. The completion of Kaiapoi High School in 1972 might have been expected to reduce some pressure on the Papanui roll, but the board remained adamant that the Tuckers Rd site should be developed as soon as possible. A pressure point at Papanui High School was the lack of quality accommodation. The departmental reaction had been to increase the supply of temporary buildings, thus creating a prefab alley of dingy classrooms. The board considered the possibility of creating a side school at the new site, one that should be administered from Papanui High School. The possibility of creating two single sex schools was also

LAwyERS

advanced, although neither option was found to be favourable. The local newspaper took up the cause of an extra school and demanded “urgent action now.” In May 1976, the Department of Education decided to build a new co-educational high school on Tuckers Rd (tentatively named Redwood High School). It was scheduled to open in 1980, initially with a form 3 intake of 200. The design of the school would be the same as the S68 model used at Kaiapoi. However, by 1977, the issue suddenly appeared less urgent. It was noted that the Papanui roll had stabilised and the Burnside High School roll was falling. In April 1979, the education minister decided that the new school would not be built. In retrospect, it can be seen that the department’s planners had been blindsided by the decrease in the national birth rate, which had fallen by 18 per cent over the period from 1964 to 1974. The boom years of the demand for new schools had come to a halt. Most of the land that had been earmarked for the “school that never was” is now owned by the Exclusive Brethren church. •Reference: Archives NZ, CAAA, CH45

“When Hobnail take the stage, they tear into their set with mucho gusto, injecting volume and energy into the evening with their illustrious blend of bluegrass, Celtic folk, pop, and rock'n'roll.” - Nelson Mail HOBNAIL has an exciting new album and is about to hit the road on an extensivle nationwide tour to promote their new offering. Following the triumph of their most successful album so far ‘String ings’ in 2015, ‘Blue Sky Songs’ is a more acoustic offering. Featuring violins, acoustic guitars and mandolas alongside electric instruments, as well as 3 different lead singers, the result is a beautiful album rich in variety. eir musical cra is clearly on display with thoughtful lyrics and soaring melodies, and a feel good vibe coming from their unique blend of folk and celtic, country and rock. HOBNAIL has won considerable acclaim over their 23 year career. Having headlined everywhere from Canada to Norfolk Island, from Oamaru to Auckland, the Wellington based four piece has also racked up multiple New Zealand Music Awards
