Over-60s feature in district road fatalities

EXCEPTIONAL: As well as acing it on the tennis court, Elizabeth Williamson graduated last month from Newberry College, South Carolina, with an undergraduate degree in biology. ​

Former Lincoln student earns recognition in US „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding and Gordon Findlater FORMER LINCOLN High School student Elizabeth Williamson is acing not only her opposition on the tennis court, but her United States college degree.

The Newberry College student, 22, was voted a third team academic all-American by management association College Sports Information Directors of America.  In her senior year, Williamson played at the No 1 spot for Newberry, South Carolina, and

won 12 straight singles matches to start the season, before finishing with a 20-2 record in singles and a 19-4 record in doubles. Her accomplishment on the court also saw her named a first team all-SAC (South Atlantic Conference) in singles

and doubles. She has been just as impressive in the classroom. Williamson graduated last month with a 3.97 GPA (grade point average) in biology. The highest possible GPA score is 4.0. •Turn to page 4

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding DRIVERS OVER 60 are involved in the highest number of road crash deaths in Selwyn. Statistics between 2012 and 2016 show people over that age were involved in 19 deaths on Selwyn roads. Over 60s were also involved in 139 injury crashes with 56 people receiving serious injuries. Forty of the crashes involved drivers over 75 resulting in five fatalities and 19 serious injuries. Police are now looking at a strategy for older drivers to look at where police can intervene to stop older people from driving dangerously. Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen said the number of deaths involving mature drivers are high. “What I am seeing more and more of is complaints coming through about older drivers. Phone calls from a general practitioner or family members saying: “Mum and dad have been medically forbidden to drive,” she said.  She said it is about discussing with mature drivers there are options without driving a car. •Turn to page 5

Tuesday June 27 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE DISCUSSION carries on behind closed doors over the wheel clamping signs in Lincoln (see page 3). The district council and the cafe’s owner are both saying little publicly now after we exposed potential trouble on the horizon over the signage. As we reveal today there is real confusion looming for motorists looking for a park when the cafe opens next month. There are district council 120 time limit signs outside the cafe and adjacent child care centre which to me says anyone can park there for a maximum of 120min. The signage covers 12 parallel car parks – seven outside the child care centre; five for the cafe. But also on the three poles are signs saying you will be clamped or towed if you aren’t a cafe customer – for all 12 car parks. Confused? – Barry Clarke

News Lincoln signs confuse motorists THE DISTRICT council is still considering legal advice over the wheel clamping tow away signs in Lincoln. Two weeks ago the Selwyn Times revealed the signage had been put up by the new Black Door Bar and Eatery Cafe in Robert St. It is due to open next month on the site of the former Tea House. But whether the signage complies with the resource consent is under investigation. Neither the district council would discuss where the matter was at when contacted by the Selwyn Times. Said council environmental services manager Tim Harris: “The council is still considering legal advice and is working with the owner of the Black Door Bar and Eatery to try and resolve this issue. We don’t have any further comments to make while we are in discussions with the owner on this issue.” The parties met last Wednesday. Owner Anita Alder said she was waiting on the district council to make a response from the meeting and would not comment on

the issue for now. Lincoln people spoken to by the Selwyn Times said they were confused by the signage. The cafe posted warnings it could clamp or tow vehicles not being used by customers parked outside of its Robert St premises and adjacent the Lincoln Village Pre-School and Nursery. But the signage is on district council poles where there are also 120min maximum parking signs. People said they believed they could park there even if they weren’t cafe customers – but would be reluctant to risk in case they were clamped or towed away. The cafe has five parallel parks and the child care centre seven car parks on Robert St. Last week some of the clamping signage disappeared, but they have returned.

STRONG TEAM: Elizabeth Williamson (third from left) with women’s tennis team the Newberry Wolves.

Recognition for student •From page 1 She is now the first tennis player at the college based in South Carolina to win the national award and was voted on by all members in the organisation. CoSida recognises the America’s top student athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.  Williamson said the award was a perfect way to finish her college career after working hard to overcome surgery she needed for a meniscus tear in her knee and glandular fever earlier this year.

She plays for the Newberry College women’s tennis team, known as the Newberry Wolves and graduated last month from her undergraduate degree in biology with a concentration in environmental studies. Williamson was first awarded an athletic scholarship to the US based on her tennis results as a junior player in New Zealand and it was renewed each year based on her athletic performance.  She has been in the US for three years, starting out at division one school Winthrop University before transferring to

Newberry College. There are no plans to return home to Lincoln for now.  “I loved growing up in the country – it has definitely shaped the person I am today. Although Lincoln seems to be doubling in size every time I visit home,” she said. She said it was hard not miss home when New Zealand is the best country in the world but for now she is continuing to enjoy her overseas experience.   Proud father Lindsay Williamson said it shows if you set a goal you can achieve.

INJURED: A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after falling in freshly poured concrete on Monday. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

Man seriously hurt after falling in fresh concrete „„ By Andrew King A MAN suffered serious injuries after falling in freshly poured concrete in Prebbleton yesterday. Police initially were told the 46-year-old man has sustained acid burns, but it was discovered that he had fallen in concrete at Cathcart Pl. The man was pouring concrete at the property when the incident happened at about 11am. A St John spokesman said the man was taken to hospital with moderate injuries but those have now been upgraded to serious. Two ambulances, firefighters and police were called to the scene. Worksafe has been notified of the incident. “We are currently making

initial inquiries,” a spokesman said. How concrete can burn: When cement is dry it contains calcium oxide, which is not particularly dangerous. However, when water is added to cement, calcium hydroxide is formed, which is extremely alkaline with a pH of 12 to 13. Normal human skin has a pH of 5.5; therefore, wet cement can produce alkaline (caustic) skin burns which progress and get worse without more exposure. A worker may have wet concrete on his or her skin for hours without feeling any discomfort; however, the cement is damaging the skin microscopically. Early identification of changes to the skin is important so steps can be taken to treat the affected area.

Over-60s feature in district road fatalities •From page 1 “New Zealanders in particular have this belief it is their godgiven right to drive a car and to give that up is really difficult,” she said. The district council’s latest road safety plan for the next 12 months also covers intersections, drink driving, speed, motorcycles, driver distraction/fatigue and young drivers. It is part of a national road safety strategy spanning from 2010 to 2020 called Safer Journeys. The strategy aims to have a safe road system increasingly free of death and serious injury. It focuses on having safe roadsides, speeds, vehicles and road use. The plan has identified mature drivers as a high concern for Selwyn on its risk register. Age Concern Canterbury projects co-ordinator Yvonne Palmer, who runs the organisation’s staying safe confident driving course, said she receives a lot of feedback from her participants they did not understand the road rules. Mrs Palmer said there is a life after a car with taxis, shuttle services, families, mobility scooters and options such as groceries being delivered to home.

Causes of crashes in the Selwyn District between 2012-2016: •Alcohol: 156 crashes resulting in eight deaths and 40 people seriously injured. •Intersections: 520 crashes resulting in 12 deaths and 84 people seriously injured. •Motor-cycles: 47 injury motor-cycle crashes resulting in five deaths and 27 serious injuries.

CONCERN: Many mature road users are unaware the road code has changed.

“I am shocked at some of the attitude . . . sometimes the older they are the more stroppy they are. People think it is the young ones who are fast drivers, the older drivers want to hold their

place,” she said. Senior Sergeant Larsen said many people have been driving for about 50 years and are unaware the road code has changed. The statistics also showed 1283

crashes were recorded from 2012 to 2016 resulting in 43 deaths and 177 road users seriously injured. The three most common crash factors was poor handling (33 per cent), poor observation (35 per cent), and people failing to give away/stop (29 per cent). Highest causes of road crashes was intersections with 520 crashes recorded resulting in 12 deaths and 84 people seriously injured. Mrs Palmer said the district council has made some positive changes such as lowering the speed on rural roads in Canterbury. In 2015 the district council lowered the speed limits from 100km/h to 80km/h on many of the roads in the Prebbleton area.

•Driver distraction/fatigue: 72 crashes resulting in three deaths and 20 serious injuries. •Safe speeds – loss of control: 78 injury crashes resulted in 12 deaths and 32 serious injuries. •Mature road users (more than 60-years-old): 139 injury crashes resulting in 19 deaths and 56 serious injuries.

Speed limits were also reduced in Rolleston, Darfield, Doyleston, Hororata, Leeston, Lincoln, Prebbleton, Springston, Tai Tapu and West Melton. The district council-owned roads are currently under a speed review. Speed and alcohol was also a common factor for crashes at 15 per cent and 16 per cent respectively. Twenty nine per cent of drivers to cause injury crashes were under 25 while 19 per cent were over 60. The new plan highlights a number of measures organisations including police, the New Zealand Transport Agency and the Ministry of Transport will carry out to reduce road crashes.

Stolen eggs smashed over cars „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PREBBLETON CAFE staff have been left shell-shocked after eggs were stolen from the premises and then smashed over vehicles in the car park. The cafe was left to clean up the sticky mess after a bold thief snuck into its unattended storeroom, stealing the tray of eggs before smashing them over its staff member’s cars. The incident happened at about 4.45am on a weekday, with staff oblivious to the thief slipping into Pete Stills the storeroom at the back of the cafe. “I wouldn’t have thought anyone would have the courage to come that close to the door,” the cafe’s manager Deb Agnew said. Ms Agnew said the cafe will not be leaving the storeroom unattended anymore. “It was just freaky someone was outside that side of the building that hour of the morning . . . when we get here in the morning we have to unlock everything,” she said. The culprit has not been

caught but police have visited the site to give the cafe security and crime prevention advice. Ms Agnew said it was more of a one-off incident and would only look into stronger security if the burglaries escalated. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said there had been a few egg-related incidents in Prebbleton in the last few weeks such as eggs being thrown at houses and cars. “Eggs are cheap and a few of them are getting thrown . . . it is not a pattern but it has been unusual,” Senior Sergeant Stills said.

Eggs are not the only items to be stolen lately with burglars making targets of Prebbleton School, a Tai Tapu furniture shop and Lincoln houses under construction. Police are asking residents to be aware of security after a spate of burglaries. Prebbleton School had its shade sails rolled away by a thief in one of its district councilowned wheelie bins recently. Principal Kim Alexander said not only was it annoying, it is a huge expense for the school having to replace the sails.

Selwyn Times reported earlier this month Tai Tapu Obelisk furniture shop had a set of distinctive gates covering a 6m opening stolen. No arrests have been made on the theft. “We are just trying to get the warning out there to be aware of your security, lock things up, put things away,” Senior Sergeant Stills said. •HAVE YOU SAY: Have you noticed a rise of burglaries in your township?

Maddie arrives in United States „„ By Gabrielle Stuart WEST MELTON teenager Maddie Collins is set to arrive today in a United States hospital for treatment, after a longrunning fundraising campaign to get her there. The 13-year-old has had to have dialysis for kidney failure most of her life, and learnt last month that it had put so much strain on her heart, she was at risk of a heart attack. In 2012, her father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to Maddie, but her body rejected it. The treatment offered at the The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore would make it less likely Maddie’s body would reject a donated kidney, and make it easier to find a match. If she can be matched with a kidney, the full treatment is expected to cost about $350,000. Givealittle pages have already raised more than $90,000 for Maddie. Her mother, Sarah Manson Collins, said the family had left New Zealand for the United States a week ago, but had drawn out the journey so Maddie could have dialysis and rest after each leg.

Funding turned down

News purchased on the corner of Weedons and Levi Rds for a large scale park would be an ideal location. Although there are other cemeteries in the district it would be nice to have one in Rolleston. These are my personal comments and not those of the Rolleston Combined Probus Club. I know you feel that we don’t need it at the moment, however, us older people would like it sooner than too much later as time is running out for us.

Fashion Readers respond to Selwyn Times’ article on Rolleston’s potential need for a cemetery:

David Bellamy – My wife and I have very much enjoyed living in Rolleston for a number of years and we are both members of the Rolleston Combined Probus Club. This club has a membership of 151 of which the average age is 76 years and 95 per cent live in Rolleston. A number of us have discussed this issue and feel that because a large number were either born in Rolleston or have lived here for some time it would be very nice to have our final resting place here in Rolleston. It would be great if the district council could establish a cemetery in Rolleston that provided for both burial and a separate area within the cemetery for ashes. The land

Gardening

Rob Anderson – There’s also a cemetery at Springston which would be closer to Rolleston than the one in Shands Rd. Last time I looked, there seemed to be plenty of room for more plots but the land may belong to the adjacent church so they would have the final say on whether burials can take place there.

Motoring

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding SUGGESTIONS THAT the district council put forward further funding for replanting on private land damaged in the Port Hills fires has been turned down. A discussion about the district council’s contribution to the Port Hills recovery was held at the recent annual deliberations meeting.  The idea for it to make a contribution was put forward by the Port Hills Selwyn recovery manager Al Lawn. Malcolm In February, the Lyall Port Hills fire affected more than 1645ha of land and more than 95 per cent was privately-owned. It was supported by councillor Mark Alexander who said the district council needed to be “paddling the canoe” along with it neighbour and suggested putting towards $25,000. But councillor John Morten asked why the contribution would go towards private land and not public land.  He later told Selwyn Times the ratepayers had put funding into

obviously firefighting and rockfall work on the private land. Deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall noted at the meeting much of the land is Department of Conservation-owned.  The district council has invested about $50,000 on rockfall hazard remediation work.  Mr Lawn said a lot of people affected by the fires were underinsured, but the district council had to weigh up how it spends the ratepayer money. “I would like to see a lot more of the hills replanted and how we encourage people to do that, I don’t know,” he said.  Mr Lawn said he is working with the district council’s biodiversity co-ordinator Andy Spanton, landowners and ECan to see what can be provided for the landowners.  Councillors Murray Lem-

on, Jeff Bland, Debra Hasson, Grant Miller and Bob Mugford were recorded at the meeting as not agreeing to the funding.  The Christchurch City Council set aside $949,000 in its Annual Plan 2017/18 for ongoing costs and $345,000 in capital expenditure for the Port Hills recovery work. The Banks Peninsula Zone Committee (a joint committee of ECan) diverted $35,000 to the rehabilitation of Ohinetahi Bush Reserve which covers land from Governors Bay to Allandale. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the district council should have put funding towards private land destroyed by the Port Hills fires?

News No second dog park for Rolleston

Artwork planned for town square

Fashion „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A BID to get a second dog park in Rolleston has failed. The idea was discussed at the district council’s Annual Plan deliberations but did not get enough support. However, it has not been ruled out in the future. Two future options were identified for potential dog parks – a space on Goulds Rd and a large piece of land purchased on the corner of Weedons and Levi Rds. It comes after concern over closures at Foster Dog Park to make way for the Selwyn Dog Training Club was raised. Along with the concerns, provisions for a new dog park was discussed at the meeting. The dog club closes the park 12 times a year. Rolleston Reserve Management Committee chairman Jenf Christensen said the committee have been lobbying for another dog park in the township. “It is a very popular place for dogs and people,” he said. Mr Christensen said the dog club is just as important as a rugby club or netball club when it comes to using council-owned grounds.

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A NEW artwork may be installed in Lincoln’s town centre. The Lincoln Community Committee is seeking to place a significant piece of artwork in Meyenburg Square to complement the planned Lincoln Town Centre Plan. The square is encompassed by the Lincoln Library and Service Centre, the Laboratory and home to the weekly Lincoln Farmers and Craft Market. It is estimated the project will cost $20,000 and $7500 was granted from the Springs and Ellesmere Discretionary Funds Committee recently.   The committee has $9500 to contribute to the project while $2500 has been donated by the defunct Lincoln Business Association.  The Lincoln Township Committee’s 2016/2017 Discretionary Fund is planning to make $6500 available. It is yet to be decided if a further $20,508 will be allocated by the township committee for the 2017/18 year. But details are yet to be finalised with community consultation and the commissioning of

an artist yet to happen. A district council report said the committee would look at a piece of artwork such as a sculpture. “With the new landscaping going on there we thought it might make an identity of the township,” committee secretary Pauline Hayes said.  She said the committee will look at approaching groups such as Down by the Liffey Gallery. 

When Selwyn Times asked about the cost of the project, Mrs Hayes said it had not been discussed at the committee. “As with anything there is always people who think it could be better spent somewhere else,” she said. Chairwoman Kathryn Claridge said the committee is only at the fund gathering stages at the moment. Lincoln Area Senior Citizens’

Club secretary Theresa Youngman any work the committee does for the community is always good. HAVE YOUR SAY Would you be supportive of the instalment of a $20,000 piece of artwork in Meyenburg Square? Email your views to georgia. oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

The Star, part of the Star Media Group, scooped the three top awards – best newspaper, most improved newspaper and it also took out the supreme award which covers newspapers, magazines and websites. Venetia Sherson who judged the supreme award category said: “The Star is bold in design and bold in attitude. The Star urges its readers to engage in debate and reflect on the issues it deems important to the community. “Strong grass roots reporting, and tight writing are the hallmarks of the paper. It tackles big subjects with a sure hand and features a good mix of civic issues, crime and community stories.” Mike Fletcher who judged the most improved newspaper category said of The Star: “The paper is a cracker. It is a joy to read. Judging by The Star’s pagination growth, the readers and advertisers like it and value it too. “The Star is filling a vital niche for news and views in Christchurch. Every page is attractive. Every page is interesting.” It was a big night for Star

Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same. While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible.

Stopping elder abuse in our communities MP for Selwyn Amy Adams writes about addressing elder abuse in the district I believe here in Selwyn we have a wonderful sense of community and most people respect and care for each other regardless of background or age. When it comes to age, the last Census back in 2013 showed that we had a younger population than other areas of New Zealand. Only 10.8 per cent of people in Selwyn at that time were aged 65 or over, compared with 14.3 per cent of the total New Zealand population. It will be interesting to see whether this proportion has changed much when we have the next Census in 2018. While most people do love and care for their older family members to the best of their ability, there is a growing awareness that some do not. This issue was at the forefront earlier this month during Elder Abuse Awareness Week which was held from June 15 to 22. Elder abuse can include

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

physical, financial or psychological abuse. Often elder abuse goes unreported because people do not understand or want to accept that they are being abused. One of the reasons for this is likely to be because three-quarters of abusers are family members or people that the victim should be able to trust. These close relationships can create a reluctance to speak out, with many too ashamed to admit that this is happening to them. My colleague, Minister for Seniors Maggie Barry is putting some excellent initiatives in place to address elder abuse and neglect and ensure our most vulnerable are supported so that they can lead happy and healthy lives. The new services will be focused on providing practical help and strategies to

victims of elder abuse. One such initiative is a new helpline which will be available from July 1 and will operate 24 hours per day/seven days a week. The free 0800 helpline will be available to anyone who needs information or support regarding elder abuse or neglect – whether they experience it themselves or see it happening to others. For those who have access to a computer, the SuperSeniors website http:// superseniors.msd.govt.nz/ has further information on how you can protect yourself and advice on how to have a conversation with others if you have concerns. Elder abuse should never be part of any society so if you or anyone you know is being treated inappropriately by family members or others, please speak up. It is time to bring this issue out into the open.

„„ By Amelia Christensen-Rose YOUNG PEOPLE are being given the opportunity to comment on projects and initiatives in the Selwyn district. The What do YOUth think campaign is a Selwyn Youth Council strategy to give young people a say on the future of Selwyn by visiting high schools. The next school visit will be held at Ellesmere College where they will be asking for students’ opinions on the current bus route for the Selwyn Link Project. The Selwyn Link project mission is to connect the youth and public with the rest of their district with two bus routes.

The routes will be Malvern to Rolleston and Springs/Ellesmere to Rolleston. The focus of the youth council has progressed from an eventsbased model to include more of a governance and advisory role providing a youth voice in the district council. All the officebearing positions are now held by youth councillors. The youth council also has regular on-the-road meetings. The first was held in Leeston in May. The meetings include a public forum where young people can share their ideas. The next onthe-road meeting scheduled is in August, in Lincoln.

Our People

Bringing Lincoln a men’s shed Pat Nicholas, 75, of Prebbleton, proves there can be a busy life after retiring. With a heavy involvement in the Lincoln Rotary Club, his latest project is to open a men’s shed in Lincoln. He spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding. You are involved in a lot of organisations, what project are you working on at the moment? There are several. I keep thinking now I must not take on anything else. The regular organisation I am involved in is the Lincoln Rotary Club which I have been a member of since 1998 and in that time I have done various things within the club and I was president from 2006 to 2007. That year was a particularly busy year and the club did a project that raised about $60,000 for The Bone Marrow Cancer Trust’s Ranui House. We did that with a dinner and auction – it was a delightful night. It blew me away how much money was raised in that short time. I was very proud to be the president of the club at that stage. You were on the board of Lincoln Community Care? I have been up until last month. I went on the board in 2001. I had recently shifted to the Selwyn area from Christchurch and I felt I needed to get involved with the community as a rotary representative. My intention was to be there for two years but I was still there this year. I am not good at sticking to my plans. I was the chairman from 2004 to 2009. I think the big achievement is we were able to get a new building. We now have a purpose built building that accommodates the three staff and there are more nursing staff at the end of the building. The other community thing I do is I am a Justice of the Peace. I had a bit of pressure from other areas to say, you would

be good at doing this sort of stuff. I don’t know if I am good at it or not but it is something I have enjoyed from meeting people who come to get their documents done and signed. Tell me about the rotary’s current project, the men’s shed of Lincoln. What stage is it up to? Here’s a history on how it came about: A retired president of the rotary club was moving off his lifestyle block who had quite a bit of equipment because he was a builder/joiner in his working life. He offered his equipment to the rotary club and I said it sounds like Lincoln needs a men’s shed. For about the last four years we have been working to get a site and raise money for a shed. We now have a site thanks to the district council which will be down by the Lincoln Rugby Club. It is probably going to take a couple of months. Is it to give retired people something to do? It is for old blokes like me who sits around at home and is a pain to their partner and look out the window and say there is nothing to do. But if they go along to this they have got other fellows there they can talk to, perhaps do a few projects they have put off around their house. It gets them out of their rut and brightens their day. It must be difficult for people who have been working all their life. It is and I don’t think men are good socialisers. Ladies go off and have a coffee but men don’t tend to do it. And I wouldn’t see much excitement sitting in a pub having a beer and looking into

space. I think there are more productive things you can do by being at a men’s shed. What do you think of the Lincoln and Prebbleton communities? We are in a relatively new subdivision and we got involved in setting up the Hampstad Lane Neighbourhood Support group. It has been very successful. I think it is a very friendly little village and Lincoln is the same. Lincoln is probably a bit bigger so it doesn’t make it quite so friendly. That is not criticising Lincoln but it is quite big. Has Prebbleton changed a lot in the last decade? It is a huge change since we came here with all the subdivisions going in. When we bought the section the developer indicated we would be the last subdivision. They are still being

developed. I wonder where the people have come from. The population is growing so fast the primary school is bursting at the seams. How did you end up spending so much time in Lincoln? I got involved with the Lincoln Rotary club when I bought a lifestyle block at Greenpark back in 1996. I had worked at the post office most of my working life. And with the changes that came round in 1986, by 1993 I was made redundant. I was at the stage where I wasn’t easily employable for my age so I decided to have a crack at having a lifestyle block. I had been brought up on a farm on the West Coast. We did that for 10 years and decided we needed a life and not a lifestyle and we came to Prebbleton. It was a

hard journey, I spent a couple of years without work and finally got a job with a company that does suspended ceiling systems. The new owners took me on as their manager of the company and I was there for about 12 years before being made redundant again. That stage I decided no more redundancies for me and retired. Where on the West Coast did you grow up? In a little farming valley on the Taramakau Settlement. I was only 16km from Kumara but those miles on the gravel road used to take half an hour to drive. We had a school at the settlement. They are always talking about these openplanned classrooms. We had an open plan – just one classroom for 12 to 14 kids. I then came to Christchurch and boarded at St Bede’s College which was a huge shock to the system. How did you find it? Difficult, totally out of my depth because the education in the primary school was not anywhere up to the scale of other primary schools. I got into the fifth form and left after the first term. I started delivering telegrams in Greymouth in 1957. It is totally different now to when I was with them. The mail system has been overtaken by the electronics. The day when we went to the letter box is now well gone. You have travelled quite a bit? Started in Greymouth, moved to Blenheim, Christchurch, Palmerston North, Dunedin and then back to Palmerston North and to Christchurch. I thoroughly enjoyed Palmerston North but I am very happy in the Christchurch area. People say Prebbleton is a long way out, it takes 15 minutes to get to central city. Once the new motorway is finished it will be much quicker again.

ADVERTORIAL

THE RICCARTON MARKET IS NOT CLOSING! During winter, as expected, the number of stall holders and the number of people coming to the market reduces but we still get in excess of 4,000 people coming every week. One of the strong points about the Riccarton Market is that both entry and parking is free to the public”.

Don’t believe everything that you hear! Despite numerous rumours the popular Riccarton Market is not closing. “It is easy to understand the confusion” says Craig Murphy, President of the Rotary Club of Riccarton. (The Riccarton Market is owned by the Riccarton Rotary Charitable Trust and managed by the Rotary Club of Riccarton). “With much publicity being given to the proposed new housing subdivision on some of the land currently occupied by the Riccarton Racing Club people have missed the point that not all of the land is going to be utilised. Over the next few years land will be progressively developed into residential sections along Yaldhurst Road and Steadman Road and then into other parts of the property. It does not however intrude into that portion of the land currently occupied by the Riccarton market”. Plans released by the developers, Ngai Tahu Properties, show the proposed subdivision being done over 6 stages which when completed will provide approximately 600 new residential sections. “In preparation for the development the Riccarton Market has reduced its footprint and condensed the number of stalls available. The Racing Club has offered other land closer to the entrance in exchange for land surrendered by the market. These new areas will be incorporated into the market over time” advises Ross Binning, Chair of Riccarton Rotary’s Market Committee. “By reducing the footprint now we have been able to provide additional parking for our customers making coming to the Riccarton Market even easier. Over the summer months we have been getting crowds in excess of 10,000 people every Sunday.

HUNDREDS OF STALLS

The Riccarton Market has been in operation for 29 years. Over that time it has moved location several times. From its origins as a ‘car boot sale’ located at the Riccarton Mall carpark, it moved to The Bush Inn, then outgrew sites at Riccarton High School and then at the University, relocating to the racecourse site more than 15 year ago. It has become an institution in Christchurch – described by the Christchurch City Council as ‘an icon’ for locals and tourists alike. It is the largest charity market in New Zealand and with room for over 300 stalls it is arguably the largest weekly market in the country. During this period Riccarton Rotary has donated more than $3 million to local charities and individuals as well as supporting other national and international projects especially at times of emergency. “It is disappointing that people still talk about the Riccarton Market closing” says Craig Murphy. “In many cases those people are directly associated with competitive markets around the city so they no doubt see it to their advantage by creating uncertainty about the future of the Riccarton Market. Be assured the Riccarton Market is here to stay. We have a secure long term arrangement over the Riccarton Park site and apart from some relatively minor redesign of the footprint over the next few years there is nothing that will change as far as our many loyal customers are concerned. They will be able to continue to come for their vegetables, meats, other food items, hardware, tools, furniture, plants, artworks, jewellery, cat and dog needs, clothing as well as to be entertained by the live music and stay and have their lunch from one of the numerous ethnic and specialised food and refreshment stalls located around the central ‘commons’.

Prebbleton win special trophy „„ By Gordon Findlater PREBBLETON HAVE ended an 18-year drought against Lincoln to claim the Hayden Kerr Memorial Trophy. Playing on their home turf, Prebbleton came out firing in their 22-17 win over rivals Lincoln. “It was a great day at the club with our sponsors day going on and we knew if we put a good performance on the paddock we’d be a good chance,” said Prebbleton coach Derek Todd. Tries to Richard Ferguson, Todd Henderson and Tim Murgatroyd gave them a 17-0 lead at half-time. Lincoln answered back in the second half with two tries, reducing the gap to five points. The decisive moment in the match took place 15min before full-time when Prebbleton halfback Guy Murgatroyd produced a moment of individual brilliance. Murgatroyd ran around the back of a lineout from 40m out and escaped the Lincoln defence before running in a try which took the score to 22-12. Lincoln went onto score a consolation try which earned them a bonus point on full-time. Prebbleton lock Greg Mitchell was awarded the man of the match award. “He was colossal in the lineout,

Celebrate Matariki

Izone Success

The Selwyn Arts Trust invites you to join them to celebrate Matariki with a free Kapa Haka performance by Te Ahikaaroa & local high schools. The performance is at Lincoln Event Centre at 2pm on Sunday 2 July. This event is supported by Creative Communities New Zealand and Selwyn District Council. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The development of the Izone Southern Business Hub is a finalist in the Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) EXCELLENCE Awards. The project was nominated in the Crown Fibre Holdings EXCELLENCE Award for Best Practice Contribution to Local Economic Development. Izone is New Zealand’s largest fully consented and development-ready industrial park. It covers 188 hectares, with only 9.6 hectares of council land remaining unsold. Currently more than 70 businesses employ 1,260 people with a further 800 jobs forecast to be created when the park is fully developed. The ports of Tauranga and Lyttelton have inland ports within or nearby Izone. Planning for the site goes back to 2000 when the Council saw the need for land to attract businesses to Rolleston and purchased a 130 hectare area of land for the project. “Those that began the project can be very proud of the impact that Izone has had, and will continue to have, on our district and the families who live here,” says Mayor Sam Broughton.

On the roads this week The intersection of Hoskyns and Sandy Knolls Roads is being upgraded and a change of priority will occur in July so that traffic approaching from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop. Traffic delays may occur and detours may operate while the upgrade occurs. Sewer line installation work is continuing on Shands and Selwyn Roads – traffic delays may occur due to this work. Levelling works are planned on Ellesmere, Southbridge Leeston and Rakaia Selwyn Roads. Cattlestop cleaning is planned on Lyndon and Harper Roads. Stop/go traffic controls will operate at all sites. Road works are planned on Algidus and South Two Chain Roads with traffic controls operating. Bridge replacement continues on Jarvis Road with the road closed. A turning bay is being created at the intersection of Dynes and Springston Rolleston Road, with traffic controls in place at this location.

SeatSmart recycling creates safer journeys A new local car seat recycling programme is helping remove unsafe child car seats from use and recycling the seat parts. The Council partnered with Seatsmart in March to carry out a local trial which offered parents the chance to have old car seats recycled at a heavily subsidised rate. The trial was due to finish at the end of June but due to its success the programme will continue to operate in Selwyn. 49 car seats have been dropped off at the Pines Resource Recovery Park since the programme started. With the programme continuing, Selwyn parents can take their unwanted car seats to the Pines Resource Recovery Park to have them recycled for a $5 charge (normally $10). The seats are dismantled through Department of Corrections community work programmes. The recovered plastic is recycled into products for the building industry, metal parts are taken to metal recyclers, and the harnesses will be used by Karkt NZ and The Green Collective who make handmade bags. Selwyn School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says all car seats have an expiry date on them and over time seats can be damaged from UV light, heat, general wear and tear or in a crash. You can find information about how to check their seat’s expiry date at www.seatsmart.co.nz. Locally, the Council has trained a number of volunteers as child restraint technicians and they can check car seat safety and install seats for free – see 'Selwyn Car Seat Champions' on Facebook for details.

The Greater Canterbury Cluster – also comprising Christchurch City Council and Ashburton, Kaikoura, Hurunui and Waimakariri District Councils – is the Building Officials Institute of New Zealand Carter Holt Harvey Building Control Innovator of the year 2017 which celebrates commitment to innovation in engineering. Selwyn District Council Environmental Services Manager Tim Harris says the Council is very proud to be part of a region-wide initiative which is working toward collective benchmarks for Council building control authority customer service. “The cluster’s aim is to improve collective business processes through common documentation, increasing the ability for software to exchange and make use of building consent information sharing across Canterbury. “This joint understanding of the systems enables opportunities for improvement, and enhances the consistency of customer experience across the region,” says Tim. The Greater Canterbury Cluster was established in 2016, in a collaboration with the Ministry for Business Innovation and Employment to drive a dramatic change in council building control authority customer service. The cluster has explored how each council controls building consenting, building inspections, build completion, staff resources and consenting fees.

New fire service to start operating From 1 July 2017 Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) - a new national organisation combining urban and rural fire services will start operating. Selwyn District Council and other local councils will no longer be responsible for issuing fire permits or responding to rural fires from 1 July onwards.

If you need to apply for a fire permit you can email firepermit. enquiry@fireandemergency.nz or phone 0800 658 628. You can also check the fire status in Selwyn by visiting www.checkitsalright.nz. One function that will continue to be carried out by the Council until 1 July 2018 will be investigating complaints about vegetation which creates a fire risk. If you need to report this as an issue you can phone the Council on 347 2800 or 318 8338.

The Pines Resource Recovery Park is located at 183 Burnham School Road and is open Monday to Fridays, 9am-4.30pm, and from 10am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

SPORTS

Perfect run continues for SPORTS defending champions HOLDERS: Lincoln High School’s first XI footballers have returned the Connetics Shield to their trophy cabinet after a 3-1 win over St Thomas. ​

Tough defence awaits Lincoln LINCOLN HIGH School face a tough first up defence of the Connetics Shield against Burnside High School on Wednesday night. Lincoln reclaimed the Connetics Shield after defeating St Thomas of Canterbury College 3-1 at Christchurch Football Centre last week. Goals from Dylan Emile, Mason Stearn and Caleb Williams were enough to overcome St Thomas who had held the shield for four weeks after defeating Middleton Grange last month. Lincoln held the shield for the majority of last season before being defeated by Middleton Grange in the final round-robin match. Lincoln had a chance to

H

reclaim the shield in the opening round of this season but were held to a one all draw. The Connetics Shield is the Canterbury secondary school first XI equivalent of the Ranfurly Shield. Defending champions Lincoln are currently second in the Connetics Schools Premier first XI competition with a record of five wins, two draws and one loss. Tomorrow’s opposition, Burnside, are currently fifth. A win will also cement a spot at the national secondary schools tournament in Napier at the beginning of September. The top four teams from Canterbury at the end of this month will qualify for the top 32 at the tournament.

LINCOLN continued their perfect run in the Selwyn Netball Centre premier competition with an 81-19 demolition of bottom of the table Rolleston. The win was the defending champion’s eighth straight to start the season. They won all five games in the opening round robin this year and have now begun the second round robin with three straight wins. They will put their unbeaten record on the line against third placed Greenpark on Saturday. The two teams played out a tight encounter last month which Lincoln won 57-51. Premier one results: Lincoln 81, Rolleston 19; Broadfield 67 Greenpark 53; Halwell RL 48, Southbridge 41. Premier one standings: Lincoln 12pts, 1; Broadfield 9pts, 9; Greenpark 8pts, 3; Southbridge 4pts, 4; Halswell RL 4pts, 5; Rolleston 0pts 6.

Mention chickens to most gardeners and they’ll throw up their hands in horror, picturing decimation and ruin. While they are busy doing other things, their chooks could be working hard in the yard – weeding, turning soil, fertilising and keeping bugs at bay. My first venture into the realm of chickens was out of pure desperation. With a massive slug and snail infestation, my goal of growing organic vegetables was getting further out of reach. I tried all the ecofriendly techniques, but to no avail. But within days of getting chickens, my garden started to improve. Not only were those silly birds dealing to the slugs and snails, but also to a myriad of other unwanted pests around the section – aka big scary spiders. They were turning over the soil as they dug for more bugs. Their poop was bringing my compost to life. Best of all, they were digging up and eating weeds, then never giving them a chance to grow back. I learnt to protect certain crops as they ripened, like berries and capsicums. Seedlings also needed protection until they were strong enough to withstand

gardening without guesswork Question:

Is July a gardening-free month, or are there some things I can get out there and do?

Answer: As we head into July, even with the chilly starts the days often turn out to be sunny and a good temperature for getting stuck in to your garden. Here are a few tasks that can done in July: Planting  Strawberries can still be planted now. Use our Patio Plus for planting in pots, tubs, barrels and other containers.  There is still time to get garlic and shallots in. Fresh garlic is delicious, and it is pretty simple to grow. Check out our website for our garlic growing guide.  Plant veggie seedlings like broccoli, cauliflower, radish, silverbeet, peas and spinach. Fertilising  Potted spring bulbs will start to pop through this month. Give them a boost of nutrition in the form of Intelligro Topdressing Fertiliser.

This will help them to continue develop, ready to burst into bloom in spring.  If you are planning to plant seed potatoes, give the area you are planting in a boost by adding in Intelligro Potato Fertiliser before planting. General Tasks  Prune your roses! Best done on a dry, sunny day. If you have any questions about pruning your roses, send them to us at info@igro.co.nz and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  Protect your plants from frosts. Add Organic Compost to gardens and layer with one of our barks. This will help keep the plant’s roots protected from the cold. Cover veggie beds with a frost cloth, and where possible, move pots indoors if a big frost is forecast.

Travel Put your taste buds to the test in Tokyo „„ By Mike Yardley ON ARRIVAL in Tokyo, I was looking for a sure-fire way to blitz the jet-lag. The sensory onslaught of Tsukiji Market fitted the bill perfectly, as I revelled in the colour, the cacophony and organised chaos of the world’s largest seafood market. Spanning the size of 430 rugby fields, the market metrics are gob-smacking. It’s the stomping ground for 50,000 workers, where over 1700 stalls sell 2000-tonnes of seafood daily, in 480 varieties. This grand encounter with the kitchen of Japan groans with polystyrene crates proudly splayed with every marketable sea creature – including whale meat. Fancy watching the daily Tuna Auction? You’ll need to get here at the ungodly hour of 3am, to score a visitor’s slot in the tuna auction room. The dealing is all done by 6.30am. Humming with post-auction activity, later in the morning, a veritable army of workers hauled freshly sold fish on fork-lifts, hand-carts and “turret trucks”, like speed-freak bees in a choreographed hive. I gazed in awe of hulking blue-fin tuna the size of

refrigerators. Half of Tokyo seemed to be out sampling and shopping. It’s a riveting introduction to the core ingredients in Japanese cuisine and the ebullient vendors happily hand-out free tastings. I grazed on seaweed, benito shavings, dumplings in soybean flour, smoked fish and kimchee squid. Best of all, Tsukiji’s quintessential sushi restaurants offer the freshest raw fish fix possible. My tour group headed for Sushi Daiwa, situated next to Sushi Dai, which are the two famous sushi houses. Their pilgrimage-like

The city’s most decorated hotel is the Park Hyatt which graces the upper-levels of a Kenzo Tangedesigned high-rise, lording over west Shinjuku. Considered the father of modern Japanese architecture, he was the master planner for the rebuilding of Hiroshima after World War 2. With the hotel floors beginning on the 41st level with the glass-walled reception, you can be assured your accommodation will be dressed with a sweeping panorama of the neon-drenched, sky-scrapered expanse of Tokyo.

pulling power means you may well find yourself queuing outside for several hours. We lucked in, with only a 15min wait. Although they staff are too polite to say so, you are expected to eat and run at these sushi counters. Alongside the delectable slivers of tuna draped over a bed of rice, we noshed on congee reel, sea urchin and that celebrated Japanese delight, tamagoyaki, egg omelette roll. If you’re sizing up one big blow-out in Tokyo, the Park Hyatt is the pinnacle of high-end hospitality.

HIGH-END: Experience panoramic views from a room at the Park Hyatt.

Backyard Critters

RUTHLESS: The robber fly catches prey as large as themselves. ​

Ruthless predators Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us: THE ROBBER fly (Neoitamus melanopogon) is a common predator found in sunny clearings around New Zealand. It is a native species about 18-23mm in length and often perches on vegetation, waiting for a prospective victim to capture in-flight. They catch prey as large as themselves with their long legs fitted with large bristles and claws adapted for holding

them. They inject a neurotoxin that immobilises the prey and digestive enzymes that dissolve the body tissue that is then sucked out. Like all flies, this species has halteres which are dumb-bell like modified hind wings that help balance during flight. However, in this case, the halteres are a conspicuous bright yellow colour. Males are easily identified by their distinctive, large genital bulb at the end of their abdomen. Robber fly eggs are laid in soil or on plants, where emerging larvae feed on rotting vegetation. This role, along with its predatory adults, make this species important in the ecosystem.

Belt and Road Forum for Future Cooperation The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) which was concluded in May 14-15 outlined the roadmap for the success of the Belt and Road Initiative. Twenty-nine foreign heads of state and government attended the forum. Other delegates included officials, entrepreneurs, financiers and media from over 130 countries and regions, which are home to more than two thirds of the world’s population and their combined gross domestic product accounts for 90 percent of the world’s total. The second BRF will be held in China in 2019.

Stronger Financial Connectivity Meanwhile, besides the actual fund injection, future cooperation would gradually extend from the building of hardware such as roads and ports to softer sectors such as management and services. Funding services and financial support would be one of the service and institutional improvements that would take more shares in the next round of Belt and Road construction. Nine Chinese-funded banks have set up 62 direct branches and representative offices in 26 countries along the Belt and Road as of the end of 2016, offering tailored services to local clients. At the same time, 54 commercial banks from 20 countries and regions along the Belt and Road have established branches, financial companies or representative offices in China, seeking opportunities with the initiative. According to the Guiding Principles on Financing the Development of the Belt and Road, governments along the Belt and Road should coordinate to provide favorable policy environments for financing. The guiding principles also suggest letting the private sector play a larger role in the initiative, and encouraging financial innovation while enhancing cooperation on financial regulation.

Consolidated Consensus The forum yielded a list of outcomes, which included 76 consensuses comprising more than 270 detailed results in five key areas, namely policy, infrastructure, trade, financial and people-to-people connectivity. It sent a positive signal for all parties to work together to build a community of shared future, which would be extremely important for China and the world.

Large Investment Demand A joint communiqué was issued at the forum, vowing to work on a long-term, stable and sustainable financing system, as well as to enhance financial infrastructure connectivity, by exploring new finance models, platforms and services. The projects will require innovative financing mechanisms -- a mix of public and concessional finance and commercial capital.

China aims to work with other countries to build the Belt and Road into an open platform of cooperation and a solution for challenges, including a lack of new growth drivers, development imbalance and terrorism. President Xi Jinping said China hoped to create a big family of harmonious co-existence, and the pursuit of the Belt and Road will not resort to outdated geopolitical manoeuvring. To ease concerns, Xi said China has no intention of interfering in internal affairs of other countries, exporting its social system and model of development, or imposing its will on others.

The Belt and Road will be open to all. All countries, from Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania or the Americas, can be partners of the initiative. So far, the initiative has won support from more than 100 countries and international organizations, of which over 40 have signed cooperation agreements. One of the eye-catching outcomes of the forum was China’s hefty financial support to advance the initiative, including an additional 100 billion yuan (14.5 billion U.S. dollars) to the Silk Road Fund. China will also encourage its financial institutions to conduct overseas yuan fund businesses with an estimated amount of about 300 billion yuan. China’s decision to scale up financial support for the Belt and Road, after billions of U.S. dollars of investment over the past three years, underscored the country’s resolution to push forward the initiative.

Landmark Significance The Belt and Road initiative has gone beyond vision and become a reality, delivering tangible benefits to countries along the routes. From Mongolia to Malaysia, Thailand to Pakistan and Laos to Uzbekistan, many projects, including high-speed railways, bridges, ports, industrial parks, oil pipelines and power grids, are being built. Since 2013, Chinese businesses have invested more than 60 billion U.S. dollars in countries along the Belt and Road. The investment totalled 14.5 billion dollars in 2016 alone, This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

accounting for 8.5 percent of total overseas investment made by Chinese enterprises.

The Chinese President in his speech also mentioned China will expand China-Europe railway cargo services and establish new mechanisms, including a liaison office for the forum’s follow-up activities and a research centre. With coordinated and sustained collaboration among all parties concerned, the forum will mark the start of the Belt and Road 2.0.

Opportunities for New Zealand Attending the forum showed that New Zealand wanted to be part of the discussion. New Zealand and China signed a ground-breaking memorandum of understanding on Belt and Road Initiative in March. The longer-term target is to work with China to develop a plan on how New Zealand can participate and contribute to the initiative.

Coming back from the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, Paul Goldsmith who is New Zealand’s Minister of Science and Innovation, Minister of Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment, said the forum “was a very impressive and significant event.” As the head of the New Zealand delegation, Goldsmith said during an interview that he sees the Belt and Road Initiative as the re-management, re-invention and re-invigoration of the ancient trade routes. He said “The Silk Road is a starting point and an expression of support for the open market, reducing trade barriers, increasing connectivity across the world. He said that as a small trading nation, New Zealand “obviously has a keen interest on all those things” and New Zealand is well aware of the opportunities that China provide especially for bilateral trade. Being Minister of Science and Innovation, Mr. Goldsmith is particularly interested in the themes of the Belt and Road Initiative on innovation, which is the particular field that New Zealand is focused on. New Zealand is also looking into how the two countries can continue to work together on innovation in many fields. New Zealand universities have long time relationships with Chinese leading universities. Mr. Goldsmith said that there’s a good prospect for New Zealand and China to further develop science connections under the Belt and Road Initiative.

SELWYN TIMES

Parents of Year 6 students are encouraged to take a good look at their child’s full primary school when choosing schooling for 2018. Why change schools when you don’t need to? Full Primary schools are tried and tested and have developed in innovative and cost effective ways since their inception in 1877. They are as important to the provision of education in 2018 as they were in 1877.

What makes them successful? • They have evolved over time and have responded to the different demographic changes since 1877. • They are located in neighbourhoods; they cater for families and respond to community needs. • They are staffed by highly trained teachers who know curriculum levels from Level 1 – 5 who have had the same teacher training as teachers in other Year 7 and 8 school types. • Teachers in the student’s current full primary school know about individual students learning progress and learning style from Year 1 – 8.

What does the research tell us about the learning needs of Year 7 and 8 students? • Curriculum that is relevant, challenging, integrative, and exploratory • Multiple learning and teaching approaches • Assessment and evaluation programmes that promote quality learning • Organisational structures that support meaningful relationships and learning

• Developing the whole child, flexibility, nurture, innovation and child centred learning sum up full primary schools.

• Educators who value working with the age group

• Year 7 and 8 students are the leaders and role models along with the adults in a full primary school with opportunities to nurture Year 1 – 6 students.

• School-wide efforts and policies that foster health, wellness, and safety

• School organisation in a full primary school fits the needs of students not the timetable. • All Year 7 and 8 students are included in leadership opportunities, sporting opportunities, school community job opportunities, buddy responsibilities and role model expectations. They are seen by others in the school as the leaders and younger students look up to them. • These opportunities and strategies to build leadership, key competencies and resilience are available to all Year 7 and 8 students in a full primary.

• Courageous, collaborative leadership

• Multifaceted guidance and support services • School-initiated family and community partnerships

Looking at the above list it becomes clear that it isn’t school type or school buildings that make the difference for Year 7 and 8 students. It is instead the innovative approach to learning and the attitude of professionals toward this group of students. This can happen in any school setting as long as the leadership, teachers and non-teaching staff are committed to the social and emotional development of this group of learners. Full Primary Schools are providers of Year 7 and 8 education in every way that other types of schools are.

And also

• From the broader ‘teaching and learning literature’, there is strong evidence that the quality of teaching which students receive at all levels and stages of schooling is of major importance in influencing achievement outcomes for students. • While productive and positive student-teacher relationships are identified as an important characteristic of highly performing schools catering for middle years’ students, it needs to be acknowledged that good teachers and school leaders at all levels of schooling is what works. • It is therefore debateable whether at least some aspects of the philosophy and enactment of middle schooling is any different from ‘good’ teaching and effective schooling generally in all school types.

The literature is clear in advocating ‘middle schooling approaches focusing on quality teaching and enhanced learning’ rather than on school type. Therefore it is what happens in the classroom to support learning and what happens across the school to cater for the specific developmental, cognitive, physical, emotional and social needs of Year 7 and 8 that makes the difference. Not school type. The research on middle schooling and its implications to provide quality education to Year 7 and 8 students is as applicable to full primary school as it is for other schooling types.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

A powerful Chevelle A long held passion for American muscle cars was the reason behind Malcolm Ryder purchasing a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle in 2010. Malcolm originally heard about the car from a friend in the United States, where it was advertised for sale. “The American economy had crashed so the owner who was a builder may have been short of funds,” explains Malcolm. After some negotiation, the car was on its way to New Zealand. The Chevelle had been geared up for street racing and only raced once however, it meant that some parts had to be removed before the vehicle was shipped. “The front wheels almost came off the ground and it was drinking fuel. The first time I drove it to Oamaru to show my family I had to fuel up by the time I reached Ashburton with it taking five tanks of petrol, there and back,” explains Malcolm. “You could smell the fuel, it was running so rich.” With the car geared up to deliver as much fuel and power as possible for street racing, some changes were needed. The vehicle was tuned down which improved fuel consumption. On a trip south, the car only needs filling up when Malcolm gets to the south side of Timaru. Malcolm also replaced the suspension and spent a good $25,000 improving the car, with pretty much everything under the hood and

floor brand new, resulting in a value that is now considerably more, especially given that few Chevelles come up for sale these days. He says the mechanical side of the Chevelle is very sound. It has plenty of power, having been worked on by mechanics who specialise in American muscle cars with the result that it is a very

7,000cc 7 litre motor put in. It also has a Holley 800carburettor. Malcolm has kept the Chevelle as original as possible with the only aftermark a stereo and Mag wheels alternating nice runner, though Malcolm confesses to between the statutory Mags and Foose having been through some tyres. Chevelles had a 396 Chevrolet big block Legends, which his children think look cool. “Car enthusiasts who see the 396 plate motor, which is in fact a 402 cubic inch on the rear diff and cut off valves below the manifold comment on this,” says Malcolm

who loves the power and drag capacity of the car. Unfortunately, Malcolm had a life threatening Jet Ski accident five years ago and while he made a remarkable recovery, has had little time to travel far in his Chevelle so it has only done 1,500 kilometres on New Zealand roads and he must now part with it. He says there are some hidden goodies that make the engine really powerful and the car fun to drive, especially the ability to open up the pipes and power off other high performance vehicles. “I stop at service stations and people come up and ask if they can take a photo of the car,” says Malcolm.

South Point serves locals and destination shoppers Faringdon locals are enjoying the handiness of their very own shopping centre while others from further afield are popping in to check out Rolleston’s latest retail experience. With South Point almost three months old, the businesses located there are delighted with the response they have received. Many are now established with some extending their range of products and services on offer. The post shop at Faringdon Convenience Store and Post Shop is now fully operational with packages able to be picked up there. Next door, Hooked Fish & Chips is making its name as a traditional English chippie where you can get generous servings of delicious fish and chips, made from fresh fish purchased from the market each day. Diners and those popping in for a coffee have kept the staff at The Pedal Pusher extremely busy. It is still necessary to book, especially

if dining on the weekend or in a group. Monday quiz nights will also be a fixture at The Pedal Pusher from 3 July so if you are a budding Mastermind, you might want to gather together a team and give them a call. The Selwyn School of Dance is now permanently based upstairs at South Point in their purpose built dance studio, with enrolments now open for term three. The boutique New Order Clothing and Accessories store has also been attracting men and women who have heard about their wonderful selection of well-known label garments and accessories. With shoes, wallets, belts and jewellery also available, you can dress yourself from head to toe in this one store.

PRIME LAND READY FOR DEVELOPMENT OR LANDBANK! Deadline Sale. All offers to be presented on or before 5pm, 21 July 2017 This attractive parcel of 7.65ha of land in the Leeston township is zoned Living XA under the district plan allowing for the immediate development of in excess of 80 residential sections. Surrounded by the township on three sides and having a parcel of the same zoned land on the remaining side, this property is embedded within this rapidly expanding township and is perfectly positioned to satisfy the increasing demand for sections in this very popular fullyserviced town – an easy commute from Rolleston, Lincoln and Christchurch. With Leeston currently sold out of sections due to ongoing demand and with no more development on the horizon, this is the dream environment for the developer as there will be no competition in the foreseeable future.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

Selwyn strong in face of slowing real estate market Latest real estate sales figures show a softening in the market with a slight shift in property prices to what might be more realistic levels, with those selling property responding to a slowing market. Latest real estate sales figures show a softening in the market with a slight shift in property prices to what might be more realistic levels, with those selling property responding to a slowing market. The trend is less evident in Selwyn where the number of properties sold, rose from 58 in April to 73 in May. The median number of days required to sell a property increased by just one day from 28 in April to 29 in May; a somewhat shorter timeframe than for Canterbury or elsewhere in New Zealand where the figure rose from 34 days in April to 37 in May. The median sale price was also higher in the district, climbing from $550,000 in April to $567,000 in May. With the market said to be slowing this could be a reflection of the increased value of housing stock in the area however, changes in the mix of properties sold each month makes it difficult to identify trends. The type of properties sold from one period to the next and diversity of properties within Selwyn can lead to swings from month to month, says Heather Clouston from Mike Pero Real Estate. “There’s a wide mix of properties and more availability than elsewhere in the region so buyers have more choice,” says Heather who believes that people are choosing Selwyn as it offers the opportunity to live out of town while having an easy commute to the city. Real estate agents are positive about the demand for properties that are priced right and offer what buyers are looking for. Some of the easing in the market is likely to be related to winter, a time when people tend to go to ground with spring tending to be a busier time for real estate activity. This is especially so for lifestyle properties that can look their best in spring and autumn or for farms when there are rich green pastures.

Regardless, properties sell year round, including during the traditionally quiet times of Christmas, New Year and summer holidays when people’s interests are elsewhere and professionals shut up shop. Heather says that winter is not a bad time to sell. “When well presented in its best light, a property can still look good in winter while fewer properties to compete with can create buyer demand and more competition,” suggests Heather.

The newly opened second office in West Melton.

Optimism in Selwyn has been the reason for Mike Pero Real Estate opening a new branch in West Melton. Branch owners, Joe and Tracey Brankin have lived and worked in the area for most of their lives and believe the demand for homes there will continue into the future.

While farms look best with green pastures, properties sell year round.

The median sale price was higher in Selwyn.

Confident at auctions Looking confident may be all you need to be the last bidder standing when the hammer goes down. Does your blood pressure go sky-high at the sight of an auction room? Chances are some of your fellow bidders are doing all in their power to psych you out and win the bidding. Securing a property isn’t just about having the most money. Sometimes the winning bidder is the one with the most confidence. They use psychology to convince opposing bidders to give up, hoping to make everyone else think they’ve got more to spend than anyone else in the room. Too often, says Bayleys auctioneer Daniel Coulson, buyers have preconceived ideas about how the auction will unfold and have their confidence knocked when it doesn’t go their way. Two can play at that game. You just need to get your strategy right, says Coulson. Looking confident may be all you need to be the last bidder standing when the hammer goes down. To be that person you need to do some preparation. Make sure you go to a few auctions first to get used to them. Come bidding day, park yourself on the side at the front so that you can see everyone in the room and, more importantly, they can see you whether they’re at the back of the front. “It gives you a vantage point and shows the opposition you are bidding confidently against them.” “You are hoping that the other buyers have a plan in place,” says Coulson. Often that’s to start low. So if you come in with a relatively high first bid, you may rattle them.

“The lower the open bid the more people can afford to bid,” says Coulson. So you could knock out some of the opposition before they even place a bid if you choose the right opener. Don’t start at $500,000 for a house you know is going to go for at least $800,000. Put an opening bid of $785,000 in, he says. Immediately your opposition is going to think it will go incredibly high and might be unnerved. Call each bid out confidently. “It shows you are comfortable and in control,” says Coulson. “The more confident you seem the more

people will think you have done it before.” It’s a really good idea to vary your bidding increments, says Coulson. “If it’s going up by $2000 bids and it’s below your limit don’t be afraid to put a $10,000 bid in,” he says. “Your competition is always thinking about that next $2000 bid and if you change the rhythm from $2000 to $10,000 you show you have the money and it changes where their next bid has to be. Instead of $4000 more it is $12,000 more.” Finally, if you’re a couple, says Coulson, make sure you’ve discussed every aspect of the auction before you get there. As soon as you start looking at each other or conferring, the opposition will think you’re weak.

Presenting your home for sale?

T

he presentation of your home doesn’t mean spending thousands on an upgrade either! So why wouldn’t you want to do everything possible to make it appealing to prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first thing buyers will see, so the property needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take a look at your place from the street and see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add some garden lights and place a nice pot or plant by the front door. Ensure the house exterior is cleaned or freshened with new paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths and fences, put stylish new numbers on the house and perhaps buy a funky new letter box!

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if necessary, but aim for neutral tones which are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter complicates! Clean out your cupboards, shelves and garage, and get rid of unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up and reduce the number of photos, books, nicknacks on display – they distract buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary, but otherwise you can simply beautify your bathroom with thorough and Make an entrance fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels, Even if your entrance or hallway is a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush, small, you can still give it some wow! A green plants. Invest in a new shower large mirror adds light and makes an curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers, sleek, modern towel rail. candles or a stylish piece of art create an inviting first impression. Ensure floors are Clean clean clean clean whether timber, tiles or carpet. Cleaning is a mandatory part of selling your home: have carpets, rugs Create space and upholstery commercially cleaned Light, air and space are three key and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to factors in presenting a home to the look like new, polish glass and furniture, best advantage. Open up curtains wash down all surfaces and fittings in and windows and use lamps and light the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange fittings, wash windows inside and out, furniture to maximise space and remove deodorise your home to eliminate any items that make the room appear odours from pets, cooking or smoke. cramped.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace can be enhanced with a café table and chairs. Add some colourful accessories – placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants, and there you have an extra living area. If space is not limited, hang a hammock, string some outdoor lights, position a garden sculpture or create a water feature that buyers will love.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home, not one that’s still being fixed! So finish everything before you list your home for sale, then launch it onto the market when it looks its absolute best – you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or appliances that don’t work are a turn-off for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace things yourself, then hire a handyman to make sure everything in your home works as it should.

Matt and Kim love spending time outdoors. So we designed them a home that maximises their indoor-outdoor flow.

Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same. While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible. At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for people who appreciate the work that goes into what will, ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

How to stay warm and dry Kiwi homes contain hidden health dangers. Yet first aid for unhealthy homes needn’t cost a fortune. It can make a home more saleable as well as a healthier place to live. Many older homes are cold and damp and sometimes have other hazards such as lead-based paint and asbestos. There are a number of steps to take to make your home more healthy. They include behavioural change, the cheapest way to make your home healthier is to open windows to ventilate. If you’re out a lot, but want to increase natural ventilation buy some security window stays or locks that allow you to leave windows slightly open when you’re out. This can be a lot cheaper to buy and run than high-tech systems. If nothing else, insulate the ceiling and under the house. The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) has information on its website about funding grants available through the Warm Up New Zealand campaign. By 1 July 2019 all rental properties must have ceiling and underfloor insulation Ventilation systems move moisture from the air making the home healthier and feel warmer. Adding a sheet of heavy polythene beneath a home can provide an efficient moisture barrier beneath piled homes.

A heat pump will warm and ventilate rooms in the winter and cool them in the summer. Watch out for hard sell in this market though and shop around before buying heating or ventilation systems. EECA suggests a number of different options for secondary glazing, which is cheaper than retrofitting double glazing. Alternatives include DIY window insulation, aluminium framed secondary

glazing on the inside of the existing glazing, or acrylic sheets attached internally. The latest technology is Low-E films, which are stuck to existing windows. This can reduce heat loss by 42 per cent says Chris Olson, general manager of ThermafilmNZ. Healthy homes aren’t just about insulation and moisture removal. Using fewer toxic chemicals can make your home healthier to live in. Parents of young children sometimes worry about exposure to chemicals as do asthma sufferers. As a result some buyers will also be impressed. Dust mites can make a home unhealthy to live in. Use a hepa filter on your vacuum cleaner or at least vacuum more often and empty the bag between cleans. Decluttering as well reduces the places that dust can build up. Mould spores can be very bad for your lungs. If mould builds up anywhere in your house clean it off as soon as possible. If this is an ongoing problem consider ways to reduce the humidity. If your home was built before the 1980s watch out for lead paint and asbestos. Both should be removed by an expert. FREE
