Oli back home after a year on the prowl MEOW: Pet Oli is back with owner Lyn Gottermeyer after disappearing for a year.

„„ By Sarla Donovan OLI THE cat is back. Well, owner Lyn Gottermeyer is 99 per cent sure it’s Oli. The big maine coon lookalike went missing in June last year and Mrs Gottermeyer, who lives in Marshland, said after months and months of searching, she’d given up any hopes of finding him when her daughter noticed a post on the Lost Cats Christchurch Facebook page last month. “ ‘Mum, I think that’s Oli,’ she said. I took a look and he had the same markings. It was a lady in Spreydon who’d found him, he’d been hanging around her place and then took up residence in her garden.” Jeanette O’Connor, who posted his photo on the Facebook page, has a labrador and three cats of her own and Oli had been going in and stealing food from them. “She cried when I went and picked him up,” said Mrs Gottermeyer.

So how did he end up travelling from Marshland to Spreydon? “I think either someone took him because of the way he looks, or he’s got into someone’s vehicle. We had contractors around the day he went missing and he’s very inquisitive. He might have climbed into their van.” Mrs Gottermeyer kept him inside for a week after he returned, just to make sure he didn’t disappear again. She thinks he must have eaten well as he’s “a bit broader” than when he left. “I’ve noticed he doesn’t like my husband as much, but I’ve got three fox terriers and they always got on well. One of them went and laid down in front of him. He likes to be outside; he always used to sleep on the back porch but now he goes down to the creek somewhere and gets soaking wet. He’s one of a kind, Oli.”

Gym club stumbles over proposal to build on QE II „„ By Sarla Donovan IT’S BACK to the drawing board for the Christchurch School of Gymnastics after its proposed new building site was rejected by residents. The club has been in its current spot at QE II Park for 21 years, but says the cost of repairing the building is high and it wants to relocate closer to the new QE II Recreation and Sports Centre. However, Dan O’Sullivan, who lives near Ascot Ave, said he and at least 25 nearby residents aren’t happy about the spot that has been chosen, and they’ve made their voices heard in two recent meetings at the proposed site. Coastal-Ward city councillor David East said a “co-operative” discussion was held on Thursday between the CSG, city council staff, Coastal-Burwood Community Board members and residents. •Turn to page 5

RESIDENTS LIVING near QE II have had to put up with a lot since the earthquakes: Battered properties, liquefaction, EQC and insurance companies. Now they’re fighting again; this time about the site for the new Christchurch School of Gymnastics, which was badly damaged in the February 22, 2011, quake (see page 1). Ascot Ave residents and others living nearby aren’t happy with the planned new site. They met last week with gym officials and the local community board. The school will look at presenting other site options at QE II, but the one residents don’t want still hasn’t been ruled out. And on page 4, resident Dan O’Sullivan has his say in our regular Soap Box column on plans to shorten the training track at QE II. What would Her Majesty say! - Barry Clarke

Progress on Dudley Creek scheme eases flood worries

RESIDENTS IN the Flockton area will sleep easier next time they hear rain pelting against their roofs. Key parts of the Dudley Creek flood mitigation scheme have now been completed. Last week saw the final part of the 800m bypass installed that will take stormwater from Petrie St to the Avon River. More than 500 properties now have increased flood protection to restore Flockton and surrounding areas to preearthquake levels of flood risk. The bypass is one of the biggest in the country and has been built by laying about 500 box-shaped concrete pipes endto-end. The pipes weigh between four and five tonne each and measure 4m x 2m. Most of the time, the bypass will be dry. It is only designed to be used when there is heavy rain and a risk of Dudley Creek overflowing. “Now, if we have a heavy rainfall, we’ll be able to divert over 8 cu m of flood water every second from Dudley

Creek to the Avon River,” said city council land drainage manager Keith Davison. “This, combined with all the other aspects of the scheme we’ve been working on over the last few years, means we can now reassure hundreds of households that their flood risk has been significantly reduced.” There is still work to be done on other aspects of the flood remediation scheme, including the Hills Rd culvert, Shirley Stream widening and road renewal in the area. “While we are thrilled that we’ve met our target deadline to significantly reduce flood risk, we are very conscious that until we’re finished all the works, there will still be disruption and inconvenience for people in these areas,” Mr Davison said.

GRANT FOR CENTRE The Pūkeko Centre development has been awarded a $400,000 grant from the lottery community facilities fund. The joint venture between two sports clubs has seen the relocation of two buildings from the now closed Freeville School on to the Parklands Bowling Club site. The money will go towards setting up the former school hall to provide a venue for indoor sports, performances and events.

QEII DRIVE EXPANSION Steel safety barriers are being installed on QE II Drive this week, from Grimseys to Innes Rd. There will also be site clearance work involving tree felling and vegetation removal along QE II Drive, allowing work to start on building two new traffic lanes. There may be delays for road users while the work is taking place. Work is due to finish on July 24.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the decision to shorten the QE II fitness track? Email sarla.donovan@starmedia.kiwi with your views.

VISION: Architect Carsten Auer, who will redesign Linwood College, stands in the school’s recreation area. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

Leave fitness track alone North New Brighton resident Dan O’Sullivan urges the Ministry of Education to rethink its decision to shorten the QE II fitness track. It is shortsighted, he writes, and goes against the wishes of many residents Common sense tells me I should not be writing this. We should not have to fight to keep something that everyone wants. The 2.2km QE II fitness and walking track follows the perimeter of QE II park. It is well used by walkers, joggers and cyclists. It also gives walking access to the Travis Rd shops. It was built by local residents and the council 10m at a time on the weekends. The Ministry of Education has bought a large portion of QE II park for two new schools. The ministry wants to take the schools’ boundary right up to the back fence of the Bower Ave residences, leaving no corridor for the track – forcing it to be diverted and shortened. As a local and regular user of the track, I am generally in

favour of two new schools proposed for the park. There was one condition of my approval though – keep the full track. Many people who I have spoken to are in agreement with this view. Recently the Ministry of Education was found to be wanting in the way it dealt with Christchurch schools restructuring after the earthquakes. The ministry did not listen to many people who were opposed to the restructuring they were doing. Now is the time to listen. Why go against logic and close off an asset that helps keep people fit and active, keeps kids off the roads and provides a quiet place for people to meet each other? The schools will also benefit as it will be a convenient asset for physical education. Consultation after the earthquakes showed that the people of Christchurch want a greener

and more accessible city. Closing the full track runs counter to that vision. It has been an oversight by the planners and one that is easily fixed. Open up areas for public use and you engender a sense of ownership and therefore pride. Close them off and the opposite tends to happen. I urge the city council to approach the Ministry of Education to see common sense, and leave the 2.2km track alone.

Lisa Armstrong – This has made me so mad. I have had several chats with the principal and others and all said that they won’t be moving, as they didn’t want it to interfere with the students and thought moving sites would do more harm than good. The original plan was to do one block that was not being used at the time, i.e. build a new gym on site, then remove the old building. Sounds like saving money became the first priority. Laura McIntosh – Lots of chopping and changing and mov-

ing of sites to create this ASGH/ SBHS super-school. Seems like they should be staying where they are. Is Linwood going to adopt this new student-led learning policy like Haeata? Raewyn Roberts – Just so long as it looks good in the hood seems to be the priority for the architect. “This project is special not only for its scale but in particular for the strong pedagogical vision developed by the college and the leadership role it is looking to undertake in the revitalisation of the eastern suburbs of Christchurch.” He said the project was personal for him as he lived in Redcliffs, which was part of Linwood’s catchment, and he wanted to contribute to shaping the future of the school. No mention of the students . . .

Flood plan draws controversy „„ By Sarla Donovan THERE’S BEEN mixed feedback on a proposed new water storage scheme for Aranui and Wainoni. An area north-west of the Pages Rd and Anzac Dr intersection has been proposed as the site for new flood storage ponds. Of the 14 submissions received during a two-week public consultation, almost half had concerns and two did not support the plan. The concerns related to the link into Farnborough Reserve, maintenance of the area when built, the possibility of changing the footpath on Pages Rd to a shared path to connect with Anzac Dr, the potential for midges and mosquitos, and the impact on existing homeowners. There are 13 houses in the scheme area, five of which the city council owned before the earthquakes. The other seven houses are currently occupied. Keith Davison, city council land drainage manager, said there were three submissions from landowners, all of which supported the proposal. He said the city council would need to pass a resolution that “supports the preferred construction options” before it could negotiate with landowners.

Let us entertain you.

T ’ N O D

REJECTED: Residents have opposed Christchurch School of Gymnastics’ proposal to build its new headquarters on a site at QE II Park.

HOME: Ninety-year-old Dorothy Grieve wasn’t keen on selling her home for a city council flood storage scheme. ​

“If that occurs, we will enter into negotiations with property owners and only then will we be able to understand fully their views on selling.” Property owner Dorothy Grieve, who is 90-years-old, has said she is not keen on selling her home as she didn’t know where

she would go if she had to sell. Ground levels in some parts have dropped by up to a metre in the Knight’s Drain catchment zone, which covers parts of Aranui and Wainoni, putting houses at greater flood risk due to earthquake-related land damage.

•From page 1 As a result, a new consultation document will now be drawn up and delivered to the local community within the next few weeks. It will present several options which may include the original QE II site. Mr O’Sullivan said he was pleased there would be other options put on the table as the current proposal was in the middle of the sports grounds and partially covered one of the rugby fields. “It’s going to be an eyesore, built on a prime position in the middle of the park. That rugby field is well-used. They’ve already covered up a playing field for the schools (Shirley Boys and Avonside Girls’ High).”

“It seems like there’s a land grab. We don’t mind the schools, but the gym school, which is a private company, doesn’t need to be there. It’s an ugly, tilt-slab, single-use building, a private facility in the middle of a public park.” “They’re trying to piggy-back on the pool but we can’t see their point (about wanting to be closer to the recreation centre).” The club has said it wants to remain close to the recreation centre “so members could potentially use both facilities in one visit.” Following further public consultation, the community board will make a final recommendation on a site to the city council.

Council makes peace with RSA Rescuing animals over Brighton memorial panels   FLAME FILES

all part of the job „„ By Mark Thomas – specialist fire investigator I’M NOT sure what got into the pets of Halswell last week but over just two days our crews were called to three animal rescues in the suburb. First a dog chased a rabbit underneath a childcare centre – and stayed there.  It was retrieved.  Second, a horse was stuck down a bank at Kennedy’s Bush. With local help and a vet on-site it was winched up.  Finally, an old fashioned catup-a-tree event in Arkwright Pl shows no record of just what was done in the radio message log. It might still be there. But I doubt it. To complete this animal report a mama duck from Bromley, who is a bit out of season with her troop of ducklings, fell into a drain only to be rescued by the good lads of the Woolston Fire Station. A bit early in the year you’d think. I hope they all survive. There were fires of course. 

A very elderly lady wielding a walking stick actively prevented neighbours evacuating her from her home in Sockburn after a kitchen fire on June 24. Consequently, she was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.  Someone in Redwood used a toaster as a cigarette lighter by lying it on its side on June 23.  Not too surprisingly the toaster caught fire. There’s a thousand ways your house can catch fire.  But there are many hundreds of thousands of houses.  Most will never burn.  A bit of common sense makes it much less likely. Just how common that common sense is, I sometimes wonder.

„„ By Sarla Donovan AN APOLOGY has been extended to the New Brighton RSA after it copped some of the blame for the “ugly” panels installed around the war memorial by the city council. The $25,000 panels were intended to protect the New Brighton War Memorial from vandalism. But after their installation in May, they received almost universal condemnation from the community. The panels were called “hideous”, “horrible” and compared to the Berlin Wall. City council staff apologised for their poor communication on the issue at a meeting with New Brighton RSA executive manager Garry House on Friday. Mr House said although they’d agreed to the panels, they had never seen an image of what they would look like. He said the city council had failed to communicate directly with the New Brighton RSA, instead directing their correspondence to the Christchurch RSA, a completely separate group. Mr House said he was keen to move on and was working co-

operatively with the city council to resolve the issue. Andrew Rutledge, city council head of parks, said the city council would continue to “monitor the situation and liaise with the community to ascertain if and when it might be prudent to remove the barriers.” Mr House said the city council had asked him to consult New Brighton RSA members about different options for protecting the memorial. One option could involve

removing the panels but making the area more visible through increased lighting, signage and cameras. Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim Money, who was also at Friday’s meeting, said it was good to get everybody around the table. “We want to look forward rather than back.” Mr House said he hoped to meet with the city council again this week after speaking to RSA members.

Unsightly trees concern residents „„ By Sarla Donovan DEAD macrocarpa and pine trees at the former Pleasant Point Yacht Club site are unsightly, depressing and a “serious health concern.” The Southshore Residents Association want the trees removed urgently and have written to the Coastal-Burwood Community Board expressing “shock” at finding out the city council intended them to provide a permanent nesting spot for birds. Association spokesman Simon Brown said neither he nor any other Southshore residents had ever seen any birds near the trees, which Hugo Kristensson were “precariously balanced” and posed a health and safety risk for people using the estuary edge. “We are concerned that the trees could fall on someone and for the ongoing effect on our mental health as the eastern

suburbs continue to be forgotten in the recovery of the city,” Mr Brown said. South Brighton Residents Association chairman Hugo Kristensson agreed they should go. They were “ghostly” and “not very attractive,” he said. “We need to tidy the area up, everyone agrees on that.” Salt water intrusion relat-

ing to the February 22, 2011, earthquake had killed a number of trees around the AvonHeathcote Estuary edge, some of which were removed in 2012. Mr Kristensson said the city council had decided to leave some for herons and other birds to nest in. But he said he had never seen any birds nesting in the trees.

FIVE CITY council properties will be sold unless the CoastalBurwood Community Board can find alternative uses. The land parcels are no longer required for their original purpose and the board is looking to repurpose or sell off the land. Any alternative use would need to establish a clear community need, have prior city council funding and make sound business sense. All in Burwood or Wainoni, the five parcels are a piece of bare land on the corner of Lakewood Drive and Wichita Pl; an accessway at 35 Yarmouth St; reserve land at 242F Lake Tce Road and two sections on Ben Rarere Ave. The Ben Rarere sections have a rating valuation of $250,000 and the city council has had discus-

sions with Housing New Zealand around a possible purchase. However city council head of facilities, property and planning, Bruce Rendall, said while the sections are not listed on any contaminated land databases, there was a “possibility of asbestos containing materials in the soil.” He said this was based on surveys undertaken by adjacent landowners of their properties, but added there was “no immediate risk to the community,” though the issue required further investigation. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board has six months in which to make a decision to retain or sell the land parcels. They are amoung 68 city council properties across Christchurch that are no longer required for their original purpose.

„„ By Amelia Christensen-Rose A TEAM of 15 mothers, fathers, grandparents and staff have installed a new garden at Rawhiti School, along with members of Greening the Rubble. The Pod Oasis garden was originally constructed in the Re:Start Mall. But with the mall closing down this year, Greening the Rubble – a charitable trust that creates and maintains temporary public parks on cleared sites around Christchurch – held a competition to find a new home for the garden. The Pod Oasis, made in 2014, was designed by Johnathan Hall and Gina Payne, and was awarded a silver distinction in the Ellerslie Flower Show the same year. The competition entry, organised by Rawhiti School Parent Teacher Association chairwoman Stephanie Haskell, said: “Our children in this earthquakeaffected suburb need beauty in their lives and the chance to feel special. “We believe our school is a

Rawhiti School deputy principal Helen Parata said they were “absolutely delighted” with winning the garden. Mrs Parata had nothing but praise for the Pod Oasis. “It’s completely transformed the area,” she said. With how big the garden is, Mrs Parata said it looks like it has always been there. “The Pod Oasis garden has become a popular place for the children to visit.’’

Chisnallwood Intermediate School band Class Disruption (above) not only made the Canterbury regional finals of Smokefree Rockquest, they placed third. Director of music at Chisnallwood Judith Bell said it was “a massive achievement for a band so young. They are just in years 7 and 8 – the youngest band to play in the regional finals.” Class Disruption performed two original songs written by Dylan Jonkers, who is also plays bass and sings. Sho Woodhouse plays drums, Hiromu Crosado, keyboards and Jacob Carey plays guitar. Runners-up, last year’s regional winners Fuzhun (right) from Shirley Boys’ High School, also won the Smokefree vocals award.

‘NTA’ a hidden gem at McLeans Island At McLeans Island, you will find an educational institute providing land based courses, supported by commercial enterprises offering its students work experience. The public can also experience visitor attractions including horse trekking and a farm park.

Agriculture

Animal Care

People interested in farming can study a New Zealand Certificate in Agriculture. The academy’s agricultural courses cover the dairy industry where job availability is high, sheep, beef and arable farming.

A Certificate in Animal Care, level 3 is the first step towards a qualification and employment in the animal care industry. This certificate is ideal for people wishing to continue with further study in vet nursing or who want to work in a kennel, cattery or pet shop.

Students learn about: livestock handling, feeding, welfare and reproduction; safe work practices; land sustainability and soil management; weed control and pest identification; pasture management; farm fencing, farm technology, vehicles and machinery; and more.

NTA also offers the New Zealand Certificate in Animal Technology, ‘Rural Animal Technician’ strand at level 5, for graduates aiming to work as Rural Animal Technicians for rural veterinarian practices.

Students learn about all domestic and rural animals, utilising the Arion Farm Park to complete practical components of the course, where they take responsibility for the day-to-day care of the farm park’s animals.

The practical skills required for working in agriculture are emphasised with considerable hands-on time spent, on the Academy’s training farm and commercial farms. The National Trade Academy has numerous contacts in the industry with their own recruitment consultant responsible for work placement opportunities.

Arion Farm Education Park The Arion Farm Park is open to visitors where you can see, touch and feed a variety of farm animals, and also hosts children’s parties and pony rides. The park is open 7 days, 10am-3pm, www.arionfarmpark.co.nz

Arion Horse Trekking Arion Horse Trekking through the West Melton Forest is ideal for corporate team building, Christmas parties, family fun days, or a group of friends; available as a 1-2 hour or half day option. Horse treks or lead rein walks are also available for birthday parties. Book now on: 021 467 618.

ENROLLING NOW Equine Popular courses at the National Trade Academy are the New Zealand Certificate in Equine Skills, levels 2, 3 and 4. Students gain hands-on work experience on a day-to-day basis with over 35 horses stabled at the multi-purpose ‘Arion Riding Centre’. Subjects covered include: horse care and handling; stable management; conformation and health; feeding and pasture management; lunging; riding; and more. Each course provides a pathway to further study and is the next step towards employment in areas such as: stable or stud assistants; saddleries; riding centres; stable management or working in tourism ventures like horse trekking.

Arion Riding Centre Based at NTA is the Arion Riding Centre, providing riding instruction and lessons in horsemanship to all age groups, from beginners to more established riders. With a dressage and show jumping arena, cross country schooling area, and affiliation to the Pony Club Association, the Centre is a top class facility for a range of disciplines. Riding lessons are available 6 days per week. See www.nta.co.nz/arion.

Horticulture A wide range of opportunities are available in horticulture – specialising in nursery, production, orchard work, viticulture, landscaping and more. NTA students can study towards a New Zealand Certificate in Horticulture at levels 2 or 3, with the option to specialise in industry strands, learning in a practical manner which includes working in the Academy’s commercial nursery. Courses are available as full-time or part-time options, suitable for: school leavers as a pre-employment course; people in the workforce who wish to up-skill; those looking for a career change; lifestyle block owners who want to learn how to utilise their land; or people interested in gardening.

Commercial nursery NTA’s wholesale nursery is open to for public viewing and purchase of plants from the new café at the Arion Farm Park (opening in spring).

Mairehau high School

Encouraging ExcEllEncE in our community

The Principal’s Desk i take this opportunity to welcome all to Mairehau high School. in upcoming weeks parents and caregivers will be choosing a Harry romana, Principal secondary school for their children. it is just a normal part of the christchurch education network enrolment process. i wish to highlight why you should seriously be considering Mairehau high School as a secondary school option in the east of christchurch. Our Teachers The teachers in our school house are committed, passionate, and dedicated. We are a small school with a caring, community feel. our teachers will get to know your child well and work with you as a parent to ensure positive and enriching learning experiences for your child. We pride ourselves on our innovative and caring staff, and we value individuality and difference. all teachers will be focussed on making a positive difference for your child. our teachers are simply a fantastic group of people.

Year 12 Geography Trip our Year 12 geography trip this year was a little different to past years as we went on a camp to Mt hutt. The focus of the camp was to collect primary research data for the 2.5 research assessment on the interaction between altitude and natural elements (climate, soil, vegetation) on Mt hutt. We visited three research locations at different altitude and students were in charge of planning and carrying out their research. They were able to use equipment geographers use in the field thanks to the geography Department at the university of canterbury who loaned us the equipment. We stayed at Mt hutt retreat, which offered us a wide range of exciting activities to participate in. Students were able to take part in abseiling, archery, air rifles, a low ropes course and a camp fire, where we roasted marshmallows. We also spent some time in Methven, exploring the township, going out for dinner and even having a golf lesson! We would like to thank the Make it happen charitable Trust who paid for a number of students to attend the camp, uncle Dom's Methven for the incredible dinner they put on for us and Barbara and Barry Wackwitz who gave up their time to support the camp. it is great to have such strong support from the wider community.

I also wish to highlight 5 specific influences outlining why you should choose Mairehau High School.

Mairehau high School

Encouraging ExcEllEncE in our community Year 12 and 13 Outdoor Education over Queen’s Birthday weekend, the Year 12 and 13 outdoor education students tramped the St James Walkway. Building up to the tramp the students had completed a tramp up and down Mt’s grey, richardson, oxford and herbert. The St James Walkway is situated in the lewis Pass and the students found it exceptionally challenging given the sheer endurance needed to persevere each day. The Walkway is well signposted and clearly distinguishable in any weather; this is fortunate as two days in we experienced snow flurries which eventually gave way to just under a foot of snow. The walkway is 67km long, and the students tented each night except one, when we stayed at anne hut due to the weather. getting up early so we could get a good start was a key to us having a successful day. We started the tramp at the lewis Pass end and the first day tramped to ada Pass hut. on Saturday we walked 25.5km to anne hut. We set up our tents and cooked our dinner on gas cookers, and had fascinating conversations with other trampers in the hut. Day three we had time to spend practising our navigational skills, exploring the area, and selecting appropriate campsites in the snow. We also met robyn and Trevor who became honorary camp parents. They journeyed with us for the rest of the tramp, giving counsel, advice and support, carrying packs and keeping our spirits high with their humour. on day four we left early in the morning and travelled to Boyle Flat hut. The final day was a swift walk out to Boyle Village and then home. Thank you to Mrs Dench, Mr Marshall and Mr russell for accompanying us and keeping us safe - you’re amazing. Here’s what some students discovered whilst on the tramp:

1. Our Size - our school and classes are small. - We are proud of our strong staff- student relationship - Your teachers will know you and go the extra mile to help you

alyssa: Plastic bag socks don’t work for very long in the snow.

2. Excellent Outcomes - we have: - excellent Ncea results - Personalised learning - gifted and Talented Programmes - Supported learning if you need it - Fle- Flexible learning programme for 3 hours per week in Years 9 and 10 - our students gained 8 scholarships to university in 2016 - opportunities for Subject Scholarships – our students have achieved Scholarships for english (top 3% in NZ) for the past two years

cassidy: It definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone – each day I thought I wouldn’t make it so I was proud at the end of the day when I pushed through.

3. More Opportunities - we offer: - a range of Sports - a range of cultural activities - leadership at all levels - education outside the classroom 4. Our Values - C A R E (Challenge, Achievement, Responsibility, Empathy) - We value everyone no matter who they are or where they come from. - We are proud of our cultural diversity. - We have strong pastoral support - We encourage student voice - We welcome parental involvement - We value our links with other organisations which encourage community awareness and social responsibility 5. Improvements to our school environment - We are looking forward to our new rebuild and improved facilities starting soon - We have a strong environment team who are constantly working to keep the school looking aesthetically pleasing to all. - We have an extensive new technology resource Mairehau high School is a fantastic school and a strong school option for students. We are a sustainable secondary school choice, with strong moral values, outstanding teachers, and excellent outcomes for students. Harry Romana Principal

connor: The stars were a highlight. Dallas falling on our tent and squishing it was a low light! lily: The scenery was the most beautiful I’ve seen, especially the wild horses.

Astronomy Conference

13

Miu: Sleeping outside for the first time made me frozen. And I didn’t love it but it was a good experience.

The Kakahu presentation The whānau of former teacher Ngawati heremaia presented Mairehau high School with a taonga (gift) in the form of a kākahu (cloak). it is the hope of Ngawati’s whanau that this cloak is worn by generations of young people from Mairehau high School, creating connections through the stories the cloak will carry. over the kākahu’s lifetime, it will absorb the mana (prestige) first of Ngawati and subsequently of every wearer and every event it is associated with in the future. The kākahu is woven from a special harakeke (flax) that makes up every part of it. This taonga comes from both the Tai Tokerau (Northland) and Ōtautahi (christchurch), representing Ngawati’s whakapapa (genealogy) in Ngāpuhi and his connection to the South island where he lived with his whānau. ana Maria heremaia (daughter) presented the kākahu to Mairehau high School at a full school assembly held on 23rd June 2017. ana provided a narrative to students and staff on the journey she took in making this very special taonga. ana placed the kākahu carefully on the shoulders of Mairehau high School chief executive Shilah Norman, who was our first student to wear the cloak. i take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the heremaia whānau for the cloak. “Tūngia te ururua, kia tupu whkaritorito te tupu o te harakeke.” (clear the undergrowth so that the new shoots of the flax will grow) Mr Romana

Tarryn: Very physically challenging experience. Next time wear boots that have been worn in!

In May I attended a weekend Conference in Dunedin on Astronomy. It was held at the Otago Museum. There were 10 Secondary students from around New Zealand that attended and a range of other students from the University. My time in Dunedin for the RASNZ Conference 2017 was an experience that I honestly believe changed my perceptions on Astronomy forever. I found the whole experience of listening to all of the Astronomers sharing their research with us, was absolutely incredible. Also being able to get the chance to talk with many of the professional Astronomers at the conference, hearing their stories and learning everything they know, was captivating in itself. Joss Bland-Hawthorn is a good example of this, and in my opinion, he’s an absolutely fascinating person. Not only did I find his talk on Near Field Cosmology absolutely incredible to listen to (it was actually my favourite talk out of everyone else’s), but his stories that he shared with me about his path through his Astronomy carrier, and the amount of love, passion and enthusiasm he brings to his work, is truly inspiring. The amount of effort he has contributed to the science, is just astounding. To this day, I still can’t believe that I have talked with one of Australia’s leading Astronomers! I felt privileged to be able to not only just see him, but talk to him too, and be able to learn from this incredible person. I’ve found myself realising how much I’ve enjoyed talking to all of these amazing people, and how much of an inspiration they all are to me. They are the sole reason why I want to pursue my dream of becoming an Astronomer, and I’m not going to let anyone else tell me otherwise. Astronomy is an amazing science, and my love for it has only gained traction after being given the opportunity to attend the RASNZ Conference through the SWAPA scheme. I thank everyone for making this possible for me. Written by Ben Lowe - Year 13

Year 11 Sports Ambassadors Workshop on Monday 19th June, three Year 11 students went along to a Young Sports ambassadors workshop, hosted by gemma Mccaw. This was an exciting opportunity for our young leaders to hear first hand what it takes to be successful and committed to their sport.

Listening to Gemma, I’ve learnt that failing is never a bad thing because you know what to do next time and how to try harder the next time you give it a go - Darrell Suaesi Faamau.

Our students gave insightful reviews about what they learnt and their take home messages from the session with Gemma.

The triple olympian was hugely inspiring and provided powerful wisdom and tools for students to use while aiming high and working towards achieving their sporting and academic goals.

I learnt that only you can make things happen in your life and you have to balance school, family, and sports - La Bella Currin-Waru. I learnt that we can all achieve our goals if we all work hard, and we as people can better ourselves from our own experiences - Sebastian Anae-Ah Sue.

Most of my trips are run annually because they’re so popular, but I’m always adding new destinations - like Sicily, South Italy & Vatican + Cuba, as people ask for them.’ Brenda checks out all accommodation before booking it, and ensures the party spends at least a few nights at each place. “That way you don’t feel like you’re living out of a suitcase.’’ Many clients now have made over 20 tours with us, one has completed a whopping 27 tours. My clients tell me they keep coming back because of the size of the groups and our

Supporting your bowel and digestive Osteoporosis is a serious condition ...but research shows it can be reversed! function helps prevent disease It is most important to keep the whole digestive and elimination systems of the body working efficiently. Otherwise toxins that have not been eliminated set the stage for disease. Many diseases have been linked with micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial component. Generally these microorganisms or bacteria can only survive due to the fact that the environment they are in is suitable for their survival. Non eliminated toxins are probably one of the main causative factors for their survival. We know that when the digestive system and bowel function are poor we have many more health problems. These include arthritis, digestive problems like reflux and stomach pain, bladder infections, chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes, poor eyesight, pain and inflammation, tumors and a weakened immune system just to name a few. Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a highly effective blend of natural herbs to support the whole digestive system and it is especially effective at cleansing the lower bowel and intestinal tract. It is commonly used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea, digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds and influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, urinary infections, liver dysfunction, Candida, weakened immune function and for people who want to keep their health as good as possible. The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the production of digestive fluids and bile

for efficient digestion. This alone may help prevent many diseases as a properly working digestive system will itself neutralise many disease causing organisms before they have a chance to cause any problems. LBS II also stimulates peristaltic action of the colon effectively cleansing the colon of any accumulated build-ups of waste material. It also relaxes abdominal cramping and spasms, enhances liver function, purifies the blood, neutralizes acidic conditions, helps destroy intestinal parasites and worms, and fights infection. Keeping your digestive system and bowels functioning efficiently is definitely an important step in obtaining and maintaining good long term health. LBS II and 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!

Osteoporosis is not taken as a serious condition by most people! Most people don’t realise they have osteoporosis until a fracture happens, as there are usually no signs or symptoms. Fractures can commonly be debilitating with chronic pain and can lead to early mortality. Fractures kill more women than all gynaecological cancers put together and one in six women taken to hospital with a hip fracture, will not come out alive and men fare even worse. Around one in three women and one in twelve men are affected with osteoporosis. The most common osteoporotic fractures are of the wrist, spine, shoulder and hip. Vertebral collapse is a compression fracture and causes back pain often with shooting pains due to compression of the nerves. Multiple vertebral fractures lead to a stooped posture, loss of height and chronic pain with reduced mobility. Hip fractures, in particular, usually require prompt surgery, as there is a serious risk associated with it of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism leading to increased mortality. Osteoporosis literally means “bones with holes”. It occurs when bones lose minerals such as calcium more quickly than the body can replace them. Although calcium is essential for bone health other minerals like magnesium, zinc and trace minerals like silica, boron, manganese, copper are essential also. Vitamin’s D3 and K2 have been shown to be essential in a bone support program. A less well known mineral strontium,

that is naturally found in your bones has been researched and found in four landmark studies to actually reverse bone loss when sufficient other nutrients are present. One study of 1,649 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis who had had at least one fracture were divided into two groups. Both groups took vitamin D and calcium supplements. One group were also given 680mg/day of strontium. After the three year study the strontium group showed an unheard of average bone growth of 8.1%. This study shows that osteoporosis can not only be halted but may even be reversed and without the side effects of common osteoporosis drugs. Further information on how to support your bone density and overall health is available from the natural health specialists at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

BREAKTHROUGH AGAINST OSTEOPOROSIS Osteoporosis, the weakening of the bone is a serious health threat that often leads to severe pain, fractures & early mortality. Research has found the bones can be re-mineralised & strengthened when the required nutrients are present. Minerals calcium, magnesium & vitamins D3 & K2 are essential but are not enough in many cases. A missing link appears to be the mineral strontium. Research shows strontium to positively affect bone density. - Supports strong healthy bones, teeth & nails - Is a naturally occurring mineral often lacking in the modern diet - Found in healthy bones & teeth but lacking in people with osteoporosis

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Journey to a smile continued...

“Over the last few years Smile Concepts has helped my extreme fear of the dentist, treating me as a person not a dental guinea pig.” Visiting the dentist can be a daunting proposition for many people, who fear they may have to endure a painful process when having their teeth treated. That’s where the caring team of experienced dentists team at Smile Concepts can help, by providing painless treatment. Plus, the personal touch they offer by taking time to go over all the treatment options and associated costs means those who fear a dental surgery will be immediately put at ease. One patient who is very happy with their service tells her story…

“My name is Jacinta. I am a 27-year-old wife and mum from Christchurch. I have enamel hypoplasia, which is a lack in enamel formation. In most cases, the enamel on people’s teeth is low or thin, but I have no enamel on all my teeth, resulting in a dark-yellow colouring. After a life of struggling with everything from bullying to failed ‘fixes’, I decided to once again pursue my smile dreams. After ringing around Christchurch dentists, Smile Concepts was the first ‘off the bat’ to know about hypoplasia. Natalie happily booked me in for a consultation. Over the last few years Smile Concepts has helped my extreme fear of the dentist, treating me as a person not a dental guinea pig. Natalie always did what she knew would work instead of trying things that might. In January 2017 I contacted Dr Dee from Vogue Dental Studios in Melbourne. He is kindly donating his time, skills and expertise to give me my dream smile. Financially, this is something I would have never been able to do without Dr Dee. And Natalie has been fabulous in helping prepping me for my trip to Australia with photos, bite guards, moulds and cleaning”. On June 2, Jacinta had the opportunity to tell her story on Seven Sharp, just one week before she flew to Melbourne to begin her journey. Before she left, Jacinta had her final hygienist clean at Smile Concepts where the team wished her well in Melbourne, and now look forward to helping her maintain her beautiful new smile in the near future. Smile Concepts is proud to help patients like Jacinta with any dental problems they may have. Their knowledgeable staff members use safe and proven procedures, the latest technology, materials and philosophies to enhance your teeth and smile.

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 mells om s o r h t ba m! a e t s and

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.

Trees and Power Lines

The responsibilities of tree owners and Orion under the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 Orion New Zealand owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur’s Pass. Trees touching power lines account for 10-20% of all unplanned power outages on our network. If you see a tree touching a power line, or any other hazardous tree condition, please contact us immediately on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Orion’s tree management programme

This advertisement provides a general notice of the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 and the dangers of trees near power lines. More detail on these issues can be found on our website www.oriongroup.co.nz or by phoning us on 03 363 9898.

We currently undertake periodic cutting or trimming of vegetation within the notice zone. The intent of this cutting or trimming is to support safety and reduce the risk of power outages. This periodic cutting or trimming by us does not remove the tree owner’s responsibilities and in the case of fast growing species may not be sufficient to ensure that trees remain outside of the growth limit zone. You will be notified prior to any periodic trimming being carried out and the work will be completed by arborists carrying Orion identification.

The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

The regulations set out the responsibilities of electricity line companies and tree owners. The purpose of the regulations is to protect the safety of the public and help to ensure a secure supply of electricity. The regulations: • define safe separation distances between trees and power lines • specifies who is responsible for ensuring clearances are maintained • places potential liability on the tree owner if any damage or accident occurs due to trees touching power lines. (Note that the word “trees” includes all types of vegetation, including shrubs, hedges and climbing vines.)

What are the dangers?

Trees near power lines need to be trimmed or removed for the following reasons: • children like to climb trees and when trees are close to power lines there is a risk of serious injury or death • in severe weather conditions, vegetation can become electrically “live” and may electrocute anyone or anything that touches it • while a tree may not touch a power line in fine weather, branches can bend or break in wind or snow storms, causing serious damage and possibly prolonged power outages • in dry conditions, electrical sparking caused by branches or windblown debris on lines may cause fires.

Orion’s tree management programme is largely governed by the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003. Our programme involves education, monitoring and the cut/trim or removal of trees that threaten to come into contact with power lines. Through this programme we work with tree owners to minimise the risk of their trees touching power lines.

If Orion becomes aware of a tree which is within the ‘Notice zone’ (see Tree “A” in the diagram below) then we are required to issue the tree owner with a Hazard Warning notice. For trees within the ‘Growth limit zone’ (see Tree “B” in the diagram below) we are required to issue the tree owner with a Cut or Trim notice.

What is a hazard warning notice?

If a tree is within the “Notice zone” (see Tree “A” in the diagram), we are required to issue a hazard warning notice to the tree owner.

Notice zone

Minimum distances required between trees and power lines

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees and power lines, defined in the regulations, are outlined in the diagram to the right. A common sense approach, by tree owners trimming trees early, will generally prevent trees touching power lines.

Growth limit zone

Tree “A”

To maintain a safe distance from power lines some trees require cutting or trimming more frequently than other trees, but if it is determined that cutting or trimming cannot satisfactorily meet the requirement then removing the tree is recommended. Other situations may require trees to be felled because they are at a distance that is considered to be a hazard due to falling during storms or being diseased.

Note:

V = Volts; kV = kilo Volts ie 1,000 Volts

1) These distances are from the power line, not the power pole 2) These distances are a minimum and apply in all conditions including high wind or snow 3) In most instances the power lines that go to a house or building are low voltage power lines. Power lines that go down a street may be low or high voltage.

A hazard warning notice alerts the tree owner that the tree has encroached the notice zone and that if it encroaches the “Growth limit zone” (see Tree “B” in the diagram) a cut or trim notice may be immediately given to the tree owner (see above).

Trimming trees near power lines

Trimming trees near power lines can be extremely hazardous and the dangers should not be underestimated. Contact with a power line can cause: • • • • • •

injury or death to yourself, family or passers by injury or death to livestock damage to property and other trees damage to electrical appliances damage to power supply facilities damage to third parties.

We recognise that the public is not always experienced in tree trimming, so we are happy to advise you on this. We can arrange for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your cost. If, however, you prefer to arrange your own tree trimming, we recommend you hire professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out this work. If you or someone working for you intends to work within 4 metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from Orion before you start. As a tree owner you may be liable for any damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

The growth limit zone is the area around a power line which trees must not encroach even in windy or snow conditions. The notice zone is a distance one metre beyond the growth limit zone.

What is a cut or trim notice?

If we become aware that a tree has encroached on the “Growth limit zone”, we will give notice in writing to the tree owner that the tree must be cut or timed to maintain the distances prescribed in the regulations, and the timeframes for action. If no action is taken Orion may then trim the tree and seek to recover costs.

Who pays for the cut or trim?

Orion is responsible for the first cut of trees near power lines, where the first cut is on a property basis, not owner basis. We have already met this obligation by completing a first cut of vegetation on all our lines. The tree owner will need to organise and pay for any subsequent and future cuts or trims. We are happy to provide tree owners with a list of approved arborists who can carry out this work, and also advise the best solution given the circumstances.

What fines can be imposed?

A tree owner commits an offence where a cut or trim notice is given, and without reasonable excuse, the tree owner fails to have the tree cut or trimmed and/or fails to advise us of the time and location of the cut or trim. A person who commits such an offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues, that person is also liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every day or part day during which the offence continues.

Contact us if in any doubt about your tree

ORION NEW ZEALAND LIMITED

Please contact us or an approved Orion tree trimming contractor to help with your trees, or to discuss your options.

We aim to work with tree owners to ensure safety is maintained and power outages are minimised. We will actively work with tree owners to see trees are trimmed or cut before regulatory powers are applied. However, as we wish to ensure the safety and security of the public, we will use the regulations where necessary.

Orion New Zealand Limited owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers.
