Red light runners risk pupil safety „„ 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 serious concern. 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. Community board chairwoman Ali Jones said off the back of the meeting, the group came away with seven action points.

“The school is not that obviMrs Jamieson said they were ous, it actually looks like a big also looking at having a longer office block . . . if drivers waiting time between the are aware there are light changing red and the children in the area they crossing turning green. will slow down,” Ms “It will be a combined Jones said. effort.

A full safety audit by the city council, of traffic from Hills Rd to The Palms Shopping Centre has also begun. Although ideas such as a flashing 40km/h signs outside the school were also proposed but is unlikely to go ahead. But due to traffic congestion along Shirley Rd after school, Mrs Jamieson said it wasn’t so much an issue of speed as red light running. Ms Jones said changes would be in place within four weeks.

Back to the future for new school Haeata Community College might be only six-months-old but it is relying on an old favourite to motivate students. Instead of a buzzer or bell to start classes, Bob Marley music plays instead. Sarla Donovan reports on pages 8 and 9

Tuesday June 20 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

HOW TIMES have changed. Reporter Sarla Donovan reports today (pages 6-7) on Haeata Community College six months after it opened. The school, an amalgamation of Aranui High and Aranui, Avondale and Wainoni primary schools – is full of innovation and newness. I remember Aranui High during my days there as being innovative. Great teachers who thought outside of the square and encouraged us to do the same. They also encouraged us to play basketball well, which was a bonus to the hard graft of getting through English, history, and other classes. Back then we had a buzzer that alerted us it was time to put the basketball away and go to class. The buzzer has now gone and Bob Marley music plays instead. My old school mates would have been very happy with that. – Barry Clarke

News Brighton fridge offers free food „„ By Sarla Donovan FREE FOOD is about to be given away in New Brighton. Waimairi Beach’s Trudy Burrows is behind the project, which opens on June 27 and was inspired after she saw a newspaper article about a successful trial run in central Auckland last year. The free food fridge will offer food donated by members of the public, cafes and supermarkets. It will all be free to those who need it. “I just felt it’s the right thing to do. There’s so much hunger in the world, it’s hard to think how one can make a difference, so you end up doing nothing, and that’s what I often do. But this seemed easy. I started step-bystep and the doors just opened. The community’s been right behind it, everyone’s been so supportive.” Mrs Burrows said the city council liked the idea and were interested in starting one in the city, but she was determined that New Brighton was the right community to do it in. “For me, it had to be Brighton first; I guess because I live here, my passion is here.”

FOOD: Trudy Burrows in the shed which will house a free food fridge and pantry outside St Faith’s Church, New Brighton, from June 27. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

The fridge, in the grounds of St Faith’s Church on Hawke St will be open 12 hours a day.

People can donate canned or unopened dry goods or surplus fresh fruits and vegetables from

their gardens. Local cafes and supermarkets are encouraged to bring down excess food at the end of the day. “Muffins, quiches, sandwiches things like that.” It’s housed in a new cedar-clad shed that’s just been assembled by her husband and son who is a builder. The fridge will be donated by Skope. Mrs Burrows is still fundraising to pay for the cost of the shed, but said businesses had donated small things which had really helped, like bricks, pens and paper bags. “Just things you don’t think of but they all add up.” She has applied to the CoastalBurwood Community Board for a grant and is also on the hunt for volunteers to help with checking stock. Everyone is welcome to take what they need from the fridge – no questions asked. “Take what you need. Leave what you don’t.” •You can support the food fridge at the open day on Tuesday, June 27, 1pm, at St Faith’s Church, cnr Shaw Ave and Hawke St, New Brighton.

In Brief RICCARTON MARKET WON’T CLOSE An article on plans for New Brighton’s future in the Pegasus Post on May 30 said the Riccarton market was closing. This was incorrect. The Riccarton Rotary Club, which has run the market for 29 years, said it holds a secure lease over the property at Riccarton Park Raceway which extends well into the 2020s and the market will continue to operate “for years to come.” We apologise for the error. MONEY FOR 360 TRAIL The mayor has recommended the city council bring forward $416,160 in capital expenditure to enable the South Brighton estuary edge section of the 360 Trail walking track to be completed. The trail is about 135km long and links up many existing tracks and urban routes. The expenditure is expected to be met from other projects and will not impact on rates. FOOTPATH REPAIRS Work has begun to reseal one side of the footpath on Pages Rd between Anzac Dr and the Pages Rd bridge. The footpath on the other side will be patched up. A permanent fix will be on the cards when the bridge is rebuilt between 2021 and 2023.

Erosion fear for domain

„„ By Sarla Donovan A PROPOSED 190m stopbank adjacent to Bridge St will reduce flood levels in South Brighton but there are questions over whether it will stop the swift rate of erosion in South Brighton Domain. Adam Perry, who has lived in the area for 43 years, has written to the Coastal-Burwood Community Board about the speed of deterioration along the estuary edge of the domain. The earthquakes caused significant land Adam Perry drop, destroying much of the existing gabion basket protection. Heavy rains in April have sped up the process, Mr Perry says, threatening to wash away new planting. “The school, campground and more are at risk from the next winter storm. Before all the hours of community planting gets washed away, can we please have some action,” he told the Pegasus Post. Mr Perry’s concerns are echoed by community board member Tim Sintes. “Water at high tide is getting

CONCERN: Plans to stop estuary-causing erosion at South Brighton Domain may not be enough, locals say. into soft sand and eating it quickly. What I thought would take six months has happened in just one. If we don’t do something, the rate of erosion is going to keep speeding up.” In some places, the estuary edge had receded up to 12m, he said. Head of strategic policy at the city council, Helen Beaumont, said the repairs to the boardwalk and jetty in South New Brighton Park included erosion protection for those facilities. “A new, short length of stopbank is (also) proposed adjacent to Bridge St to fill a low point in the existing topography.

The proposed stopbank will be constructed in the vicinity of the existing estuary edge footpath. These works will not alleviate all flood risk to South New Brighton area, but it will reduce flood levels.” The proposed stopbank is currently in the design and consenting stage, she said. “The city council plans to enact the works within the next six months, but this is dependent on successful application of resource consent.” “The bund is approximately 190m long, with a maximum height of approximately 850mm (typically between 400mm and

700mm) and a crest width of approximately 1m.” Mr Perry questioned where the proposed new stopbank would start and stop. “There needs to be protection all the way along to the jetty. What’s the plan for the exposed bit in between? It doesn’t sound sufficient.” Tim Sintes said gabion baskets destroyed in the earthquakes should be rebuilt. “I want to see the protection reinstated as it was. We know it worked; why not fix it? There’s examples of baskets that didn’t slump and they are working beautifully.”

In Brief CLOCK REPAIRS The New Brighton clock tower will be fully repaired by summer, with work expected to begin in spring. A detailed engineering evaluation has been completed which notes the structural and cosmetic repairs required, such as rust staining, and a full scope of repair and restoration work is currently under way. BOY RECEIVES TRIKE A Parklands boy has received funding from the Mazda Foundation to purchase a specialised trike. Mikey Lavender, 11, who has down syndrome, received $1399 in funding for the trike, which will enable him to build strength and cognitive ability, and allow him to go bike riding with his family in nearby Bottle Lake Forest. The Mazda Foundation is funded through a contribution from the sale of every new Mazda in New Zealand. DANCER GETS GRANT TO GO TO NATIONAL SCHOOL Coastal-Burwood Community Board has given Parklands ballet dancer Anna McKay, 12, $225 to attend a five-day course at the New Zealand School of Dance in Wellington. Anna is a year 8 student at St Francis of Assisi Catholic School in Mairehau.

Your Local Views

Brighton’s green future Treaty educator and Green Party candidate for Christchurch east, Cathy Sweet, believes New Brighton has all the ingredients to become a magnet for ecotourism The locals know about it and that’s why we live here . . . the huge expanses of recreation reserves, river tracks and great water sports, the estuary birdlife and yachting, the beach life, swimming and surfing. Ecotourism is the perfect drawcard to get local and international visitors coming to our village and spending at our vital local businesses. These days most travellers are looking for something to do that will revitalise their interest in life again, that will show them different views, culture and perspective, that will excite or move them. Another mall won’t give them that lifelong memory. East Christchurch can offer the drawcard of family-friendly and lower cost activities. Ecotourism is about entertainment and

ECOTOUR: Green Party candidate Cathy Sweet says ecotourism is about entertainment and activities that don’t use a lot of natural resources, like these murals in New Brighton mall. PHOTO: JANNETH GIL

activities that don’t cost a lot of natural resources to build, and don’t involve fossil fuels and pollution to maintain. This includes the beautiful murals on New Brighton shop walls and Peter Donnelly’s internationally known sand art. And now the east has the big, new opportunity we have been waiting for: A river park from city to beach. Without having to leave town, locals and travellers will be able to get into the great outdoors to gain all the physical and mental health benefits from walking, cycling and boating in amongst native forest and birdlife. The east Christchurch waterpark concept would be a further stunning attraction. Eco-design is the very latest

trend, so how do we make sure there is enough ‘eco’ in our ecotourism that designers and mayors around the world are talking about us? Here we go . . . wind and solar powered amenities. The latest composting restroom facilities. Food containers that are made from renewable and compostable materials. Cycling options everywhere. Green cabs and buses. Organic snacks, and other quality local food and drink. And, of course, local hapu knowledge, both old and new, incorporated every step of the way as our country is in the very fortunate position of having iwirun corporations which ensure that there is always regard for future generations.

We said: Panels erected to protect the New Brighton War Memorial have been described as “hideous” and a poor solution to the problem of graffiti You said: Linda Street – A heinous, appalling, shaming abomination. I actually prefer the graffiti. If I wanted to put flowers there today in memory of the soldiers who died in the Battle of Messines, I would have to place them in front of that plastic box. Horrible. Laurence Fairley – I had a meeting with David East, city councillor, two years ago about the disgraceful appearance of

this memorial. The discussion was about techniques to remove graffiti from sandstone correctly. The discussion talked about video surveillance and ownership. Never in my wildest dreams did the wall come up. Talk about Berlin, Israel and the Mexican wall. Now Brighton has its own. The wall needs to be removed immediately. The memorial stands for far more than this. This wall sends the wrong message to the community and serves as a challenge to the protagonist vandals who think smearing this marker with their ‘sign’ is okay. What was that chant back in the 80s . . . Pull down that wall!

News Raising eyebrows with a new way Reporter Sarla Donovan visits Aranui’s community school six months after it opened HAEATA. IT means “dawn.” The first appearance of light. New beginnings. The opening of Haeata Community College six months ago signposted a new era for schooling in the east. It’s a poster child for big-box classrooms, catering for up to 200 kids in one space. The year 1-13 school replaced Aranui High, Aranui Primary, Avondale Primary and Wainoni School after earthquake-damaged land and buildings and falling rolls prompted their closure. Bordering Shortland St and Breezes Rd, the size and newness of the buildings is striking. It looks like a large-scale primary school, with its sun shades, adventure playground and brightly coloured exterior panels. In the centre of the campus is a massive building housing the gymnasium, library, offices, cafeteria, kitchens and studios for music and drama. A glass-fronted atrium is at its heart, the school office tucked along one wall, in keeping with the open-plan vibe. It feels like a cross between a hotel lobby and a community hub. Opposite the office, a cafeteria displays the blackboard specials: today it’s creamy vege soup, nachos with melted cheese and a salad with bacon, haloumi and green beans. Mouse traps, wedges, pies and fruit salads feature in the cabinet. There’s only water and plain milk in the fridge and no processed food on offer. Kids sit at cafeteria tables wearing an assortment of clothing; hoodies and sneakers are popular. There is a uniform but the rules seem pretty flexible. Lavalava’s are everywhere the day I visit, all the teachers are wearing them and lots of students too.

BUSY: Haeata Community College principal Andy Kai Fong has responsibility for over 900 students from ages 5 to 18. PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

I find out later it’s because of Samoan Language Week. There are 128 Samoans students at Haeata, making up the majority of its Pacific Island population. Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds blasts out of the sound system at 9am. Children dash through the atrium, thread around cafeteria tables and tumble out the big

glass doors, on their way to class. Principal Andy Kai Fong is determined to meet the 21stcentury head on and he’s at the helm of a school that looks and functions differently to a traditional model. Primary, intermediate and secondary-aged children sharing the same campus. Teachers

operating in shared, open plan spaces rather than individual classrooms. A strong emphasis on self-management and studentdirected learning. Laptops and phones instead of pens. Ninety minute periods. There’s a lot that’s new about Haeata, and Mr Kai Fong freely admits their approach has raised

a few eyebrows and may have lost them some students in the months since opening. He’s okay with that, and accepts there’s a possibility the roll could go down next year. They’re trying to take a more holistic approach to learning, he says, and it will take time to educate the community about what the school is trying to achieve. In spite of that, the roll of 950 is healthy. They opened with 50 per cent more students than anticipated and are catering for kids who have come from 122 different schools. That figure reflects the transience in the area, as well as the school’s distinct character, which he says has attracted families from outside the local catchment. Their philosophy has something in common with Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery, which also uses a model of personalised, studentdriven learning, though he points out most students at that school attend by choice, not because it’s their local provider. Ultimately, the aspiration is to become a viable alternative for everyone in the catchment. Historically, only 40 per cent of local kids in the Aranui/Wainoni area attended their local school. “We’re trying to bring people home and offer education that’s purposeful, but it’s challenging for our community to get their heads around. We have copped criticism for the level of self-management (we expect from students). For seniors particularly, it takes time to embed – we’ve flipped expectations on their head. Whatever your plan, there’s challenges.” Interestingly, Mr Kai Fong didn’t have any input into the buildings, but says it’s an amazing place to work and the big-box style has never impacted strongly on what they want to do for learning. “We utilise the buildings and furniture for what we need. We can have up to 200 students or just two in these flexible spaces.”

LEARNING: Pupils focused at Haeata Community College.

A whirlwind tour through the school’s three open-plan learning spaces throws up a busy and noisy primary school, where separate clusters of children are working with teachers. No dividers punctuate the room, apart from a half-wall which separates a group of high-needs pupils. A soft hush descends when we enter the senior school. Students are scattered around the central learning area, at tables or on the floor, intent on computers or phones. Jack’s on his laptop, writing a story for an animated computer game. The boy next to him is surfing Youtube; his self-directed learning has taken a detour. Phoenix is doing algebra – she’s planning to join the navy. While there’s not many posters or student work on display, that’s

maybe a reflection of how new this all is. In a small classroom off the main area, the familiar sight of a maths class in progress: teacher, whiteboard and four students. Small group teaching seems to be the thing here. Mr Kai Fong says as technology evolves, schools need to stay relevant and engaging to young people. It’s a balancing act. As I go to leave, a little group of kids comes trotting past behind their teacher who’s carrying a yellow cricket bat, wickets and a ball. They’re heading for the gym. She looks young, energetic, and committed. Perhaps it’s that, more than buildings or philosophy, which will determine whether Haeata becomes the school of choice for its community.

Lions choir set to perform with South Brighton Voices „„ By Gabrielle Stuart THE LIONS Male Voice Choir will perform only once in the South Island leg of their tour – at the South Brighton Voices choir 70th jubilee concert. The 50-man choir is touring with the Lions team, and is set to perform at the three test matches and at four concerts in the North Island. Former Christchurch student, Cheuky Chan (right), is responsible for bringing the choir to the city. A concert pianist, she regularly accompanied the South Brighton Voices choir before she moved to Europe to study music, and while in Wales began accompanying the Lions Male

Voice Choir. South Brighton Voices secretary Helen Buxton said Ms Chan contacted them when she heard the choir would be touring New Zealand, and they told her about their 70thjubilee concert.

She put them in touch with the conductor, Ieuan Jones, and they agreed to arrange their trip so they could perform at the concert. Mrs Buxton said it was very exciting for the Christchurch choir members. She said the Lions choir planned to perform Hallelujah by Rufus Wainwright as part of the concert, which would also feature a range of pieces from gospel songs to a piece from The Sound of Music. •The concert will be held at The Piano on Wednesday, June 28, from 7.30pm.

Former classrooms prove popular „„ By Sarla Donovan ORGANISERS ARE pleased at the response from the community with 20-plus groups or individuals interested in using nine former Central New Brighton School classrooms. Old School Community Hub project co-ordinator Rachel Welfare said interested parties included artists, a group looking for office space to run a magazine, a pregnancy care organisation and a Menz Shed group. “It’s an awesome crosssection and what we were really hoping for the space. People are continuing to apply and hopefully we’ll have a working bee at the end of the month to get the space ready for people to start moving in in July.” She said they were currently working through the process of fitting people into the rooms, as some only wanted to use space for an hour a week while others needed room full-time.

COMMUNITY USE: Empty classrooms at the former Central New Brighton School have attracted interest from more than 20 community groups and artists.

There were also some “city council hoops to jump through” to ensure the project receives a promised partial rates rebate. “The city council like the project and are supportive of it,” Miss Welfare said. “They want non-commercial users and we’re trying to figure

that out now, where the line is drawn. We are working on a case-by-case basis.” The Old School Community Hub project is being managed by ReNew Brighton. It has permission from the Ministry of Education to use the site for two years.

Loving home guaranteed Supermarket and council for your hall table create new playground

The Nurse Maude Hospice Shops are a well-known feature in Christchurch since the first hospice shop opened in Merivale nine years ago. Not quite so well-known, however, is Maudes on Trade Me. While the Hospice Shops sell clothing Maudes on Trade Me sells everything from antiques to sporting and household items. “If it’s still in good condition but you no longer want it, have room for it or will never use it again you can raise money for the Nurse Maude Hospice by donating it to us,” says Sue Bramwell, general manager marketing at Nurse Maude. While smaller pieces can be left for Maudes on Trade Me at any of the Nurse Maude

Hospice Shops it is sometimes possible for larger or bulk items to be picked up. “Just give us a call on 375 4643 or email us at trademe.volunteers@nursemaude.org. nz first if you have large items and we can let you know where in Merivale to drop them off or whether we’re able to pick them up” says Bramwell. “Unfortunately we can’t take beds, mattresses or televisions, but we can take almost everything else in good condition.” “Maudes on Trade Me helps make it possible for patients and their families to receive care and support free of charge at the Nurse Maude Hospice so they can focus on what matters rather than having to worry about how they’re going to pay for that care.”

A collaboration between a local Wainoni business and the city council has seen an old playground opened with a new lease of life. Shortland playground in Wainoni faced an uncertain future when the new Wainoni Pak’n Save was rebuilt on its door step. But a joint effort from the city council and Pak’n Save saw a revamped playground opened to the public with a public planting day at the weekend. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge (left) said Pak’n Save had approached the city council in April last year with an idea to keep the playground open. Improvements included removing the existing boundary fence with Pak’n Save, removing plants that were blocking sight lines, tidying up existing garden beds and planting around 300 new plants, a play surface and new paved surfaces.

PLAYTIME: Lucas Taylor, 3, has some rides at the revamped Shortland playground. ​

“It’s great to see the community and local businesses getting involved with the city council in the provision of parks and playgrounds,”

said Mr Rutledge. “The $50,000 contribution from Pak’n Save has kept the playground open for community use. Their funding has allowed for the relocation of some equipment and the removal of some plants to improve sightlines into the park which makes the park safer for the community. They have designed their staffrooms so they look out over the park which also assists with passive surveillance of the space.”

PERSONALISED PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS

2018 Student Leaders: 1st Row: Vai Mariner, Crystal Mehlhopt, Jenna Hollis, Leeah Mullany, Sarah Moana Wooff-Smyth 2nd Row: Eden Pettigrew, Adonai Schwenke, Anaru Gray, Cole Barrie 3rd Row: Havana Aaifou, Thomas McHutchison, Sapana Kharal, William Paulden, Sean Robertson-Wright, Makayla Austin

Enrolling now for 2018 Message from the Principal Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofaatu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings to our Community. As this page shows, the life of a secondary school is busy and varied. Linwood College nurtures personal excellence by providing diverse opportunities to meet individual needs, opportunities that support a personalised learning pathway. This pathway is now opening out to our partner schools. Linwood College is running a cycle of eight-week enrichment programmes for Year 6-8 learners in the

schools in our communities, LinwoodWoolston and the Bays. The programme is very well regarded by the young learners themselves and their schools. Debating was the first topic which culminated in a lively debate held at Sumner School. The present programme is Mathematics and is proving equally valued. Many people are keen to learn more about Linwood College. To this end, I am holding regular evening appointments for families keen to know more and to meet me personally. Please phone the school office, phone 9820100, to book in a time. Nga mihi nui to our community as the positive activity of the year continues. I am always keen to meet people if any member of the community wishes to talk to me about anything. My door is open. Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki-Principal

Samoan Speech Competition Success To start winter off with a bang on 1st June, students from Linwood College pitted themselves against other talented Samoan speakers from Christchurch schools, as part of the annual Samoan Speech Competition. Held at Hillmorton High School, the event was opened by Leumu Gali, St Thomas of Canterbury College's Samoan Language teacher. This year’s topic was: 'Maau i ofaga, Maua'a lou faasinomaga' ('Keep your identity alive to thrive'). With more than 100 students competing, Linwood College's Gloria Sua won first place in the Year 11 section with Tala Leupolu (Year 12) achieving third place. Two Year 13s achieved placings wtih Vai Mariner getting second place and Janet Tuiloma, third.

It was Janice Tuiloma’s first competition. She and her twin Janet signed up so that they could make their families proud. Another participant, Havana described how she and others shook with nerves as they prepared to present their speeches. The Nationals which will take place in August 2017 here in Christchurch.

Samoan Language Week Celebrated To celebrate Samoan Language Week, in the first week of June students at Linwood College arranged a number of activities, including a lunch for staff. Students also performed a number of dances, engaging staff in a traditional dance.

May Music Month

Chess Tournament Winners

A crowd of Eastgate Library visitors settled in for double treat – tasty delicacies provided by the library staff accompanied by a peppering of performances by Linwood College students as part of the recent ‘May Music Month’. A funky, hip-hop number by Filipino students and a Bollywood dance followed the Year 7 students’ drama which kicked off the evening. The school band performed many melodious pieces. Surrounded by vibrant colours and sound, the audience clapped along to the smooth reggae tones of Tyrone TePoono as he crooned Six60’s Don’t Forget Your Roots. Adonai Schwenke’s thunderous tones reverberated Tennesse Whiskey’s lyrics throughout Eastgate to a cheering crowd. With a dabble of jazz, a smoky solo by Piper Stewart, a splash of drumming by Luke Barry, one Samoan dance later - onlookers were bursting full from the smorgasbord of

the evening’s cultural flavours. Organisers stated that the event had been inspired by Linwood College's ‘Festival of Nations’ held back in March and hope that this enchanting evening may become an annual event to showcase local talent.

As the nine o’clock bell tolled, the Linwood College hall was abuzz with the humming of table-top timers as students of all ages from across Christchurch competed. This gathering was for the annual Chess Power Interschools Tournament, held on the 22 May. Seven Linwood College students vied against students from nine local schools, achieving twenty-three wins in total. As a result Linwood College secured first place in the tournament. Senior students Marvin Brimon, Joshua Galang and Ly Jefferson Brimon as well as Ivo Craeig Baguingey (Year 8) achieved the four top placings throughout the day. Marvin Brimon came out on top, winning six matches and has been invited to compete in the National Championship to be held in Hamilton in October. Congratulations to you all!

Competition winner Marvin Brimon (Year 13)

Reeves and Madeleine Usher. The story follows an American singer who takes part in the Kimberly diamond rush in 1880s South Africa.

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Headaches,

facial and jaw pain

Physical Sense Gym & Physio, located in Colombo Street Sydenham, focuses both on helping people stay physically fit and healthy, and helping people to overcome various health problems.

A

t the adjoining physio clinic, the four qualified physiotherapists specialise in dealing with chronic pain, such as headaches, earache, toothache, and facial and jaw pain. As physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk explains, when our muscles tighten this can refer pain to many of the areas around the face and head. Dehydration can be the catalyst for tightening the neck muscle (SCM), which causes pain in the

ear, forehead and around the eye and jaw joint areas. Tightening of the temporalis muscle can refer pain to the teeth, which can be confusing when the person visits the dentist to have it checked and the dentist can’t find a reason for the recurring pain. Teeth grinding at night and teeth clenching during the day, are also a major cause of muscle tightening. Physiotherapy treatment for these problems, is based on deactivating

the ‘trigger points’ through handson massage therapy, to relax the muscles, which is the least invasive and a very effective form of treatment. Dry needling is another technique used for muscle relaxation, but is only used with the client’s consent, Ietje says. “We release the muscles to give immediate relief and at the same time work on the cause. For example, we have a feedback headband that is worn at night to help people to learn not to clench their teeth while they’re asleep. We also work

on the client’s cervical or neck part of the spine, where overuse can cause muscles to tighten, creating pain.” Teaching self-management of stress is an important aspect of the clinic’s treatment, as well as teaching breathing techniques, which go hand in hand with managing stress. The gym is open to the public for regular specialised classes for people with ailments such as diabetes, osteoporosis, vascular problems, and those who face difficulties following a stroke.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

The process of having new dentures made and fitted usually takes four appointments, and Chris explains the process step by step so patients understand what’s being done, further complete after care is provided at no additional cost.

“Every set of dentures is made to onsite by hand, using higher grade materials as standard, allowing us the ability to customise every aspect of the process. We also aim to cater toward the upkeep of existing dentures, with same day repairs and relines on offer, as well as being available on Saturdays, allowing us to work around even the busiest schedules,” he says. “Our aim at Better Denture is to create the best possible denture experience for you, the customer, whether it be through the products we custom create, the service we provide or the manner in which strive to achieve both of those goals.” Anyone needing new dentures is invited to contact Better Denture, phone 349 5050, for a free consultation.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Natural product improves joint health For many of us, as we grow older our joints start to become stiff, sore and swollen, reducing mobility and quality of life. Most of these joint problems are caused by a lack of cartilage or damage to the cartilage, which is the soft, spongy material between the moving bones. The body continually produces cartilage, but factors like digestive and health issues, and not enough of the right nutrients in the diet, slow its production. If the cartilage wears away more quickly than it is replaced, the bone ends can start rubbing together, causing reduced joint movement, pain, swelling and inflammation of the joint. Generally, the joints with the most use or stress show problems first, but eventually other joints may show problems too. Luckily, certain nutrients are known to support and stimulate cartilage production. Pure Vitality is a small West Coast company, where they are committed to producing effective, natural, life-changing health supplements. While most joint care products on the market are very similar, Pure Vitality wants their products to be the most effective. Their new Joint Vitality product contains scientifically researched, high-potency natural ingredients to provide a multipronged approach to joint health. As well as a full therapeutic dose of the more common glucosamine and chondroitin, Joint Vitality contains a concentrated deer antler velvet extract to help stimulate healing. Another unique ingredient is joint fluid or mega-potent hyaluronic acid. This has been shown in clinical trials to be more effective than glucosamine and chondroitin. Joint Vitality also contains enhanced absorption turmeric extract, as well as the highest- potency extract of boswellia available to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain, and speed joint recovery. The formula also provides antioxidants from grape seed extract to support cellular joint health, and vitamin D3, zinc, boron,

manganese, copper and selenium, all critical to optimum joint health. This comprehensive formula is designed to provide fast, lasting results. It is recommended to take three capsules daily with food for the first box or two to obtain the maximum benefits. One box of 60 capsules is $49.90. Further information is available from Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, phone 3885757. We are Always Happy to Help!

McKenzie Lifestyle Village McKenzie Lifestyle Village is in the final stages of completion. There are still great sites available and we also have a number of affordable villas ready for immediate occupation. Our beautiful Leisure Centre was opened last year and the pools, gymnasium and library and lounge area are in use daily. Outside, the bowling green is very popular along with Petanque, Mini-golf and Table Bowls. By next summer the Croquet Lawn will also be available. The residents enjoy an enviable resort style lifestyle. It is also surprisingly affordable. A former Christchurch resident, Judith, says “We couldn’t have all this for what we are paying if we were still in Christchurch.”

Another resident, David, says “my wife and I have never been so well off as we are now we moved to McKenzie Lifestyle Village.” There are fuller testimonials on the village homepage at mlv.co.nz. Geraldine is a great little town with a very pleasant microclimate. There is plenty to do in and around the town with art galleries, theatre and cinema, interesting shops and boutiques, two museums and a wide range of good places to eat. For the more adventurous there are river and forest walks nearby, opportunities for biking and a choice of two local golf clubs. For more information you can talk to David Connolly about this on 0800 84 55 24.

The importance of good blood pressure! 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. Further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

Natural Joint Support Just Got Better! PURE VITALITY a small natural health manufacture on the West Coast of the South Island have developed a unique new Joint Care Formula. It contains a full therapeutic dose of the proven ingredients Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Vitamin D3, Zinc, Boron, Manganese, Copper & Selenium as well as a potent blend of the latest research proven ingredients. These include Turmeric Extract, high potency Boswellia, Grape seed, concentrated Deer Velvet from PURE VITALITY’S own Deer farm & mega-potent Hyaluronic Acid or Joint Fluid. Joint Fluid acts like a lubricant & shock absorber in the joints to protect them against wear & tear. A human clinical study showed hyaluronic acid was significantly more effective than glucosamine & chondroitin. Another human clinical study showed that the high potency Boswellia gave significant improvements in pain, joint stiffness & physical function scores in osteoarthritis patients in only 7 days.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit, most homes include at least one heat pump, if not a whole heating solution. They can provide cheap, clean heat and are much more convenient than a log burner as you just need to press a button. But how do you decide what is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore important to get professional advice from heat pump experts. The range varies from wall mounted high walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted central heating systems allowing you to have a very discreet way of heating your whole home to a constant temperature throughout. Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is suitable for the size of the space you wish to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area taken into consideration but also, insulation, building orientation, windows and ceiling space. There are a wide range of heat pumps available with different heating outputs so it is important to select the correct size for your requirements that will handle the job but not be unnecessarily overpowered. Secondly, the location of your heat pump is also extremely important. The cheapest installation is a back to back where the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind the indoor unit however this is not necessarily always the best option. It is vital that the indoor unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is the location of the outdoor unit. Most people do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly in their outdoor entertaining area or right outside their bedroom window. Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands have come and gone over the years but there are a number of manufacturers who provide reputable and reliable products. All brands vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems and price, so it depends on your application as to which will be most suitable. Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands backed up by good technical after sales service. Ensure your heat pump is installed by an accredited installer. This will not only ensure correct installation of your heat pump, but also validate the manufacturers warranty. Other things to consider when choosing a heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi capabilities. Heating is a major investment in your home and it is vital to get the right advice. Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply, installation and servicing of all major brands of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as to which system will suit your application the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no obligation quote and will come to your home to see what is required. Visit our website at www.enviromaster.co.nz.

The facts about home ventilation Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure 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

ve Remo ells ng sm i k o o c am! e t s d an

wasted using a traditional positive pressure system is recovered, resulting in significant energy savings and therefore lower heating or cooling costs. Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation systems have been considerably more expensive than traditional positive pressure systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390 balanced pressure system can be installed for a similar price as a traditional positive pressure system.

JO HAYES NEWS UPDATE

CHRISTCHURCH EAST

Contact me anytime P 03 384 9459 M +64 021 620 316 E joanne.hayes@parliament.govt.nz W www.johayes.co.nz

I’m Jo Hayes, National’s list MP based in Christchurch East. I love being a part of this wonderful, tight-knit Christchurch East community. There’s so much going on that I just want to share a few highlights with you of what our community and Government are working on achieving together. Nga mihi mahana.

Jo Hayes National List MP based in Christchurch East

Bill English Right Honourable Prime Minister of New Zealand

www.national.org.nz

Authorised by Jo Hayes, National MP, Unit 6/975 Ferry Road, Ferrymead


www.national.org.nz

All in a day’s work

It’s the things we do every day that total the sum of our lives, so I was thinking recently, how do we spend our time as MPs to really make a difference? While we sit in Parliament and make and debate laws – and that’s important - it’s often the little things we do that really matter in people’s lives. That’s what I’m proud of when I think about my role as a list MP in Christchurch East. My staff and I always have the door open to chat and offer a helping hand. Here are a just a few things that we’ve been up to over the past few years:

Open those roads! Some of you may remember last Christmas when Pages Road was closed Eastbound for months on end, and scheduled to open again on Christmas Eve. That wasn’t soon enough for New Brighton businesses in the Christmas shopping season, especially after two hard trading years with road closures. We had a chat with CCC and SCIRT, which came to the party and worked around the clock to get the road open two-weeks before Christmas Day.

My first Bill – a win for youth! It was a huge honour to have my first Bill – to amend the Marriage Act – read in Parliament earlier this month. The Marriage (Court Consent to Marriage of Minors) Amendment Bill seeks to protect 16 and 17-yearold minors from forced or arranged marriages by necessitating court consent to the marriage.

Immigration Immigration is a tough and emotive issue, especially for those trying to stay in New Zealand. These decisions often involve keeping families together, keeping businesses running and sticky situations all around. We’ve had plenty of immigration cases come through my office and have always done our best to support Christchurch East residents and businesses for the best outcomes. Although we can’t comment on specific cases, we’ve had very positive outcomes in the majority of them, including emergency visas.

Currently, 16 and 17-year-olds who wish to marry need only parental consent. This amendment will ensure that all minors over the age of 16 who wish to marry do so with the acceptance of the court and with equal consent from both parties.

Getting the right mix

It’s so important that we protect our young people’s rights and freedom to make their own life decisions and not to be forced into an unwanted union.

At the same time, the Government regularly reviews immigration settings to make sure that we’re getting the right mix of skills and the right quantity of people. We want to make sure that Kiwi businesses have room to grow but that the interests of everyday Kiwis are put first too.

The Bill will now head to Select Committee where it will be open to discussion and public submissions.

The Government recently raised the first remuneration threshold to $48,859 a year: applicants who earn below that threshold will have no pathway to residence. The second threshold will be set at $73,299 and applicants will automatically be considered as high-skilled. We’re also proposing changes to work visas to limit the duration and settlement expectations of lower paid visa holders. That said, we’re also proposing a new pathway to residence for 4000 long-term temporary migrant workers in the South Island – many of whom have played a key role in the Canterbury rebuild.

Something smells here... Waimairi Beach residents got whiff of a Christchurch City Council (CCC) plan to move the dump site closer to their homes. They were understandably unhappy and approached my office to see if we could help them out of the quagmire. I looked over the plan and met with Minister Brownlee, and we asked that the plan be overturned. It was, and residents and CCC agreed on an alternative site where the offending odours wouldn’t intrude. Another win for locals!

www.national.org.nz

Government support for the East

Sometimes it’s not until we look back that we realise how far we’ve come with the rebuild in Christchurch East. Beyond the residential, we can all pat ourselves on the back for the following:

Social housing The Government has poured a massive investment into social housing from Aranui to Shirley, and continues to actively build as part of its social housing programme. These new, warm and healthy homes are benefiting plenty of Christchurch East families and sprucing up the neighbourhood!

The Force is with you, Christchurch East

Education

The National-led Government is investing $503 million to provide new staff and police services across New Zealand. That means a total of 1125 new police staff – including 880 frontline officers – over the next four years. The Canterbury Police District, including Christchurch East, will get an additional 10 boys (and girls!) in blue over the next year to focus on child protection, adult sexual assault and serious crime in our community. And that’s just the beginning.

The Government has invested in three new primary schools: $10.2m for Marshlands; $14.5m for Waitakiri and $13.6 for Rawhiti. Of course, we’ve also got the fabulous new Haeta at $298m.

The additional staff will boost police force capacity and help achieve better outcomes for all. The first recruits will be on the beat in July.

But wait, there’s more: a further $650m is tagged for the upcoming relocation and rebuild of Avonside Girls and Shirley Boys at QE2 park; the rebuild of a Catholic primary school in Aranui, and Banks Ave in Shirley.

New Brighton redevelopment It may seem like there’s not a lot happening on the ground in New Brighton yet, but there’s plenty of work going on behind the scenes.

Hospitals The new Burwood Hospital, at $215m, is truly a state-of-the-art facility and a fantastic asset for the East.

In a snapshot:

I have frequently voiced my support for the new hot water salt pools and redevelopment, and I’m actively working with the Business Association of New Brighton to identify potential investors in the area’s future. New Brighton has such a vibrant and steadfast community and it’s going to take all of us – Government, CCC and community - to create the future that we want for the area. As a side-note, it was an absolute pleasure to host New Brighton artists at Parliament last year!

Emergency housing support

We were contacted about an elderly woman in urgent need of re-housing. We successfully found her a home and helped source furniture as well.

School bullying

Teachers and parents at a local Christchurch East school approached us about ongoing bullying problems. I met with the principal and we’re monitoring the issue together.

Burwood-Pegasus Community Watch

I head out on watch duty on a Friday night whenever I can with one of the committed Watch members.

Authorised by Jo Hayes, National MP, Unit 6/975 Ferry Road, Ferrymead

Contact me anytime Business Let’s not forget that the Government also funded some Christchurch East businesses immediately after the earthquakes so that they could retain staff and run their businesses. The business owners I know are hugely appreciative of the investment, which has allowed them to continue thriving and operating out of the electorate.

Budget a big win for Christchurch East families

Let’s talk

Joanne Hayes and Finance Minister Steven Joyce.

The Government’s budget on 25 May is great news for Christchurch East families. Here are a few highlights in case you missed it:

„„ A $2 billion a year Family Incomes Package that will help hard working New Zealanders get ahead. The package will lift the incomes of 1.3 million families by an average of $26 a week. „„ $4 billion to help build the public infrastructure we need as a growing economy, as well as additional funding to strengthen the Business Growth Agenda to help drive further economic growth, create jobs, and lift wages. „„ $7 billion new investment in public services like health, education, and law and order over the next four years, including $321 million in social investment initiatives to help the most at-risk New Zealanders become more independent.

This is an exciting budget that puts more money into the back pockets of those who need it most - low and middle-income earners with young families and higher housing costs. By getting the economy growing again and putting the Government’s books back in order we’ve given ourselves choices that few other countries have. We can fund new initiatives that will make a difference to people’s lives. Some of those include:

„„ An additional $224 million over four years for mental health services. „„ $37 million to improve the safety of family violence victims and stop family violence escalating. „„ $185 million to further expand social housing services. „„ $424 million for the new Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki.

Please come along and see me. I’ll be parked in my van on 30 June 2017 at: 1) Preston`s subdivision By Marshlands School on Te Korari Street. Time: 8.30 - 9.30am 2) Parklands Outside sports field, opposite shopping centre. Time: 10-11am 3) Shirley Burwood Park by Shirley Rugby Grounds, New Brighton Road. Time: 11.30am -12.30pm 4) New Brighton Next to Ray White offices. Time: 12.45 - 1.45pm 5) Wainoni Marae on Pages Road (out the front). Time: 2-3pm 6) Richmond Stanmore Road, outside of the park and opposite New World. Time: 3.30-4.30pm Please phone our office on 03 384 9459 to book. See you there!

Get in early! Jo Hayes’ birthday is on 11 September, but it’s also the date for another exciting event – the day early voting starts.
