DESIGN FLAWS are believed to be responsible for leaks in the six-year-old $4 million Burnside High School art and technology block. Similar leaks have also been found in the school administration buildings. They will be repaired as part of a $24 million repair and redevelopment work plan at the school, which is set to start this year. The cost of fixing the leaks is not yet known, but is expected to be assessed in the next few weeks. The building has been leaking for more than two years, but work to fix it was put on hold while the Ministry of Education assessed other earthquake repairs and redevelopment work at the school. Burnside principal Phil Holstein said the repair was initially not expected to be done until 2022.

It was brought forward to this year, as the school was worried damage would be done to the building if the leaks were not repaired, he said. He said the architectural design of the buildings was believed to be responsible for the leaks. “Across the country, a lot of school designs with this style of architecture, particularly flat roof buildings, a lot of them have weather tightness issues,” he said. Alongside the repair work, he said the school was set to be refurbished and modernised. “We want to provide the best learning environment we can for our students here, and that’s ultimately what we’re after,” he said. Bringing the work forward meant the school could start the master-planning process with the Ministry of Education soon, he said.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THERE’S ONE big leaky problem on page 1 today – Burnside High School. We reveal design flaws are believed to be responsible for leaks in the six-year-old $4 million art and technology block. Similar leaks have also been found in the school administration buildings. The cost of fixing the leaks will be known in the next couple of weeks. The building has been leaking for more than two years, but work to fix it was put on hold while earthquake repairs were assessed. The flat roof design appears to be the cause of the damage. No surprises there. Hats off, or hats on to the netballers (see page 21) who braved the brutal conditions last week at the Hagley courts. Real character-building stuff. – Barry Clarke

News No library bus for Merivale „„ By Julia Evans THE MERIVALE Precinct Society is worried about the lack of facilities for its ageing population. So the residents’ group came up with a solution – to put the mobile library bus stop there again. Deputy chairwoman Denise Leighs approached the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board, which raised the issue with the city council. However, the city council said Merivale does not meet the criteria to get the mobile library bus back anytime soon. “The mobile library idea

was discussed at (the Merivale Precinct Society’s) May meeting as an ongoing conversation about the lack of facilities for the ageing population,” Mrs Leighs said. She said the library bus used

to stop in Merivale before the earthquakes outside the JDV cafe entrance on Aikmans Rd. But city council libraries and information manager Caroline Robertson said the city council would not be considering a stop

in Merivale. “Previously the mobile library did stop at Merivale but, at the time, the area did not have access to the same number of library facilities it does now,” Ms Robertson said. She said the city council is also mindful of the distance to the nearest library. Merivale Mall is 2.9km from the Papanui Library, 2.4km from the Peterborough Library and 3km from the Fendalton Library. Mrs Leighs will take the response back to the Merivale Precinct Society. The mobile library route has 23 stops, including various retirement villages around the city.

CASTLE: Artist Asheley Elizabeth with the sandcastle.

WESTERN NEWS

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

MASTERPIECE: Marthah, Gemma, Brianna and Caitlyn Hellyer admiring the sculpture with artist Annette Griffiths.

Sandcastle on display IT HAS taken four artists, a week of work and 10 tonnes of sand. But shoppers at The Hub Hornby won’t be able to miss the extravagant sand sculpture in the middle of the mall. The brief was broad – a fantasy castle. So artists Asheley Elizabeth, Cynthia van de Loo, Helen Beswick and Annette Griffiths went

to work creating the masterpiece. Hornby Hub manager Jason Marsden said the mall had been doing this annually since 2012. “Always during the school holidays,” Mr Marsden said. He said there’s something special about capturing the imagination of children who can see the whole art process for a week and then the final product for another week.

But Ms Elizabeth said it wasn’t only children stopping to have a look as they worked. “It was people of all ages that were coming in and having a chat,” she said. The sandcastle will be in the mall until the end of the school holidays but Ms Elizabeth said she’d love it if the public wanted it there for as long as possible.

Halswell shelter recaptures past THE STORY of a women’s refuge has been captured in a Halswell shelter. Canterbury’s heritage has been reflected in a remembrance structure that recalls and tells the story of Mount Magdala, an 1880s women’s refuge and its historical farm buildings. Titled A Place to Shelter, the new structure in McMahon Reserve outlines the history of the area and incorporates repurposed heritage material from the original Mount Magdala farm. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board has been involved in the design options. “We are delighted a new remembrance structure now features in McMahon Reserve, incorporating heritage material from the original Mount Magdala farm. It brings history to life in the Aidanfield area,” Community Board chairman Mike Mora said. The shelter stands on the site of the farm that once provided all the food for Mount Magdala, and, later, St Joseph’s Orphanage. It presents a new chapter in

„„ By Julia Evans THE COMMUNITY living alongside Christchurch Boys’ High School is worried about dangerous driving and pedestrian safety. Residents have expressed concerns to the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board regarding commuters “rat running” and “speeding” through Harakeke St to avoid peak traffic delays in Riccarton. The Straven and Riccarton Rd intersection is particularly busy, residents told the board so to avoid traffic motorists are opting to use Harakeke St. The intersection at Straven Rd has the most significant safety issues for cyclists and Christchurch Boys’ High School hostel students who often use the intersection. Traffic calming measures, including speed bumps, have already been installed in Harakeke St but city council staff are now investigating to see if there are any other safety measure that can be implemented. A report will go back to the community board with findings by September.

Glimmer of hope for hall „„ By Julia Evans THE YALDHURST Memorial Hall has been thrown a lifeline, with more consultation to be made before a decision is made on its future. But now it will take two community board’s to decide its fate. Last month, the HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board decided to recommend to the city council that the plaques be removed and the earthquakedamaged building be demolished. But the community board made a U-turn on its recommendation, and asked that more Mike Mora consultation be carried out before a final decision is made, which councillors agreed to. Board chairman Mike Mora said he met with some residents following the board’s decision, who raised concerns with the consultation around the hall’s demolition. “There’s quite a lot of issues that came to light – a lot of the community were expecting

another round of consultation before this decision was made,” he said. At the meeting, city councillor Aaron Keown expressed an interest in being involved in the process as the hall lies on the boundary between Harewood and Hornby wards.

in the February 22, 2011, earthquake forcing its closure. A city council report said it would cost $1.2 million to repair. Demolition was expected to cost between $50,000 and $75,000, it said. The report said the community was in favour of demolition, but wanted to retain a community building in the area, with further discussions to be had

around that. A seminar will be held between the two community boards to outline the current situation. The boards will then consider an agreed way forward including arrangements for further engagement with affected local community. A time frame is yet to be confirmed.

Repairs to begin on Burnside’s leaky buildings •From page 1 Ministry of Education head of the education infrastructure service Kim Shannon said the work would start in the next few weeks. Once the design work was done on the buildings, the cost of fixing the leaking issues could be assessed, she said. “A designer will be appointed in the next few weeks to determine specifically what is required to fix the weathertightness issues,” she said. She said the leaks were the result of “historic design and construction work”, but who was liable was complicated. “Proving liability for weather-tightness issues is not straight forward in Christchurch due to the wide ranging impacts of the earthquakes,” she said.

A NEW and modern teaching block is nearing completion at Villa Maria College. On July 25, the school is set to open its new classroom block, which offers a nod to the past. The college has named its new building Kia Toa, which was the name of the original late 1800s homestead the Sisters of Mercy purchased as part of the Peer St property in 1918. “We understand Kia Toa means to be brave and to store. Kia Toa expresses these ideas for the building as a place from which girls will set off, strongly

and bravely with their store of knowledge to take the story of Mercy with them,” principal Deborah Brosnahan said. Kia Toa will boast 17 large teaching spaces for technology learning, including food, textiles and digital as well as media studies, english, social sciences and religious education. The new building is part of the college’s 10-year modernisation programme. Next year marks Villa Maria’s centenary, with celebration planning already well under way.

500g Frozen broad beans 100g Snow peas 2 Avocados 250g Cherry tomatoes

CHICKEN BREAST WITH MUSHROOM STUFFING AND MARSALA GLAZE Ingredients 1 Garlic clove 1 Shallot, or small onion, diced 15g Butter 50g White Button mushrooms 2 slices Bread, stale and diced 1 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped 1 Lemon, zest 2 Chicken breasts 1 Tbsp Oil 3 Tbsp Marsala, or sherry 2 Tbsp Cream Directions Stuffing In a small frying pan, fry the garlic and shallot in the butter until translucent. Add the mushrooms and fry for 2-3min until cooked. Add the breadcrumbs, cooking until the butter has been absorbed. Take off the heat, add the parsley and lemon zest and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. To cook the chicken Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

15

Dressing ½ cup Avocado oil ¼ cup Cider vinegar 1 tsp Sugar 1 tsp Mustard 1 tsp Salt 1 to taste Cracked black pepper Directions Stuff the chicken breast by lifting the tenderloin up (if there is no tenderloin, ignore this). Press half of the stuffing on to the breast meat. Cover the stuffing with the tenderloin. Wrap the breast with kitchen string to secure the stuffing in place and tie. Repeat with second breast. Heat a frying pan and add oil. Add the breasts skin side down and season with salt. When browned on one side, turn and season again. After 3min, place the pan in the hot oven for a further 10-12min or until cooked. Remove from the oven and cover with foil to rest for 5min. To serve, place the chicken on a chopping board and remove the string.

Slice in half and place on a warmed plate. Cover with foil while you make the sauce. Return the pan of chicken juices to the hob. Add the marsala or sherry and let it reduce for 2-3min (this is called de-glazing). Add the cream and taste for seasoning. Pour the sauce over the chicken. You may need to pour over through a sieve to remove any burnt pan leftovers. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve with potatoes and greens.

Thaw beans. Peel grey skin off beans. Wash snow peas and cut in half lengthways. Cut avocado in half, then remove stones and peel. Chop avocado roughly. Wash tomatoes and cut in half. Toss beans, snow peas, avocado and tomatoes with dressing. Dressing: Combine avocado oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

19

Time Honoured Are you Magnesium Remedy According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an important part of a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly consumed cider vinegar and honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar and honey on arthritis can be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found regular administration of cider vinegar and honey at the onset of complaints such as the common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever, and childhood diseases such as chicken pox and measles, was accompanied by an improvement in the condition with symptoms either disappearing, or the conditions were extremely mild and soon over. Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Scientists have found over 90 different substances in ACV, among them 20 important trace elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a number of different acids including malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and pectin. A scientific study at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can destroy free radicals, which are a major factor in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down cholesterol formations in the blood vessels. ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all cider vinegar is made in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Minerals are the building blocks of good health. Some minerals are only needed in trace amounts where others like magnesium are needed in much larger amounts and on a regular basis to prevent deficiency and maintain optimum health. A large number of us do not obtain sufficient magnesium from our diet and may notice some of the common signs of deficiency. Some of the more common symptoms that may be caused by insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands, blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep, raised and/or unstable blood pressure, poor circulation, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, swallowing problems, dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation, irritability, seizures, poor concentration and many more. Although many young people now show signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms generally worsen as we age due to our digestive system being less efficient. Taking a magnesium supplement of sufficient strength may be a sensible option to top

up our vital magnesium levels. Not all magnesium supplements however are well absorbed by everyone. Luckily a new marine sourced magnesium has been found that offers good levels of absorbable magnesium as well as many trace nutrients that are low in the diet but essential for good health.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Be health smart this winter HaNDS arE the main pathways of germ transmission. Hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission of harmful germs. Wash your hands, before & after food preparation and eating, if you borrow someone elses equipment and of course after blowing your nose. For convenience it is a good idea to have hand sanitiser on hand to use in between washing. Sneezing & coughing into the crook of your arm or tissues rather than your hand, reduces the spread of airborne bugs. remove tissues to the rubbish immediately. Keep hydrated, two thirds of your body is made of water, so keeping hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Dehydration symptoms range from headaches to nausea to fatigue, but the effects of dehydration on your immune system are not always as obvious. Staying hydrated keeps the mucus membranes moist, which keeps the immune system functioning optimally. Unfortunately, lattes and wine don’t count, but upping your intake of water is incredibly beneficial. aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. You’ll notice the difference!

True

Eat in season, poor nutrition impairs the immune response. Fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and legumes or pulses are full of immune-boosting properties and antioxidants. Nature provides fresh seasonal foods to compensate for what our bodies are lacking at that time of year. Kiwifruit & citrus fruits that are in season throughout winter are packed with Vitamin C. Stress less, although short periods of stress can actually be good for us longterm chronic stress lowers our immunity, making us more susceptible to colds and flu. We all have our own ways of coping and reducing stress so whether it’s taking a bath, going to the gym, getting outdoors in the garden or having fun with the kids, do something to unwind. Not only are you doing your adrenal glands a favour, you’re also reducing your chances of being struck down by the latest virus. Get a good night’s sleep, sleep is essential for your body to rest, repair and rejuvenate. (Don’t you find you always tend to look your best after a good night’s sleep?) The human growth hormone that’s released during sleep helps repair your body at a cellular level, but it’s also beneficial for the immune system.

Villa Maria scores junior title win SPORTS

CHAMPS: Villa Maria’s year 10 side won their grade in the South Island junior netball tournament. (Below) Rangi Ruru and St Margaret’s year 10 sides persisted as long as they could in terrible conditions before the game was called off.

„„ By Andrew King VILLA MARIA College celebrated winning the year 10 title in the South Island junior netball tournament after beating Queenstown’s Wakatipu High 42-27 on Wednesday. However, due to appalling weather conditions, the final was transferred from the Christchurch Netball Centre to the St Margaret’s College gym. Unfortunately, they were unable to play most of the final games on Wednesday due to snow falling. Villa opened their account in the tournament with a 49-15 win over Gore’s St Peter’s College before beating Wakatipu 30-23 and Cashmere High 43-22. In the second day of competition, Villa beat Timaru Girls’ High 38-28 before losing to St Margaret’s 26-23. They bounced back to defeat Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate 37-25. The semi-finals were able to be played before the weather closed in with Villa beating Southland Girls’ High 25-9 to progress to the final. Tournament director Penny Martin said it was a great event that was unfortunately let down by the weather. “After two full days of playing their little hearts out, it was a shame to cancel those last

games,” she said. Rangi Ruru Girls’ High were third equal with Villa Maria in the year 9 grade. Christchurch Girls’ High were third equal with Southland Girls’

High in the year 10 grade. The annual tournament, now in its 20th year, attracted 88 year 9 and 10 teams ready to compete for glory over the three-day event.

New treatment for fungal nails Feet First, the long-established podiatry clinic in Upper Riccarton, now has a much more efficient and effective means of dealing with the problem of fungal nails, thanks to a new machine they recently obtained from Britain, where it was designed and trialled. Clearanail is a procedure where the Podiatrists use a machine to make tiny holes in the nail without affecting the nail bed – a completely pain-free procedure that then allows the topical application of antifungal solution to directly reach the problem area. Fungal nails may cause the toenail to thicken, which consequently can make shoes feel uncomfortable. Anyone who believes they have a fungal infection of the nails is invited to make an appointment for a

consultation with Feet First so one of the qualified Podiatrists can assess if that is the case, and if so, will recommend the Clearanail procedure. This involves the initial treatment, and three follow-up appointments at monthly intervals to check progress. “Fungal nail infections won’t disappear immediately,” clinic director Charlotte Russell says, “so people need to commit to the process, which can take up to four months as the nail grows.”

effective treatment, Feet First has another unique feature – the Shoe Room. Here, clients can browse through a wide selection of ‘fashionable, functional footwear’ for men and women that not only provides support and comfort, but also looks modern and attractive. The four registered and experienced Feet First Podiatrists offer the full range of podiatry services for all ages and all conditions, with customised treatment provided for every client. They also offer a range of quality foot treatment products, including the German brand Gehwol.

The clinic at 37 Main South Road is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm, with late nights on Monday and Thursday to 7pm by appointment. The Shoe Room is open Monday to Friday 9am-4pm.

Seal pup gets short shrift „„ By Mark Thomas – specialist fire investigator IT WAS going to be the mother of all storms apparently. It turns out it wasn’t.  At least not in the city. But it was bitterly cold, some snow fell and on the hills it managed to settle.  I’m sure the weather did have some effect, however, with 16 motor accidents attended by our crews in the week. We did have the odd other call that could have been attributed to the weather.  Although the incident attended by Harewood and Addington crews in Hornby last Friday had its origin in ignorance rather than iciness.  A fire was lit in the fireplace by a shivering occupant.  It’s just that this was a house damaged back in the earthquakes and the chimney had been removed. The result was quite fortunate really, with smoke filling the ceiling and then the house itself. Fortunate because that smoke was all that happened. Could easily have resulted in the loss of the home. We go to any number of false alarms at buildings with

The Christchurch School of Music is a family-oriented community aimed at providing quality music education in and around Christchurch. CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong focus on community. On a Saturday morning the whole family can find something to suit. Preschool and junior school children can start their musical journey by joining in our experiential “Take Off with Music” while older children and adults may opt for group or individual lessons on a specific instrument (including voice). Those who already play are welcome to join in one of the great ensembles which all take part in regular concerts including Saturday soirees and the popular annual Showcase Concert. Solo Recitals where individuals can perform are held regularly. CSM also provides a comprehensive music education to participating primary schools via its Outreach programmes offering

tuition in band, strings, recorder, ukulele and classroom music in a wide range of Christchurch schools. Age is no limit - our Late Starters programme provides the opportunity for adults approaching retirement with more time on their hands to learn an instrument and join an ensemble with other like-minded adults. If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also offers a range of weekday opportunities for learning and playing music and, if affordability is an issue, CSM may be able to offer a discount through funding provided by the Rata Foundation. Term 3 starts on Saturday 29 July and we can take new enrolments in most classes and ensembles. Please contact us via our website www. csm.org.nz and let us start you on a musical journey that will bring pleasure for a lifetime.

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

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

Get rid of dampness in your house

Now wITH the colder and wetter weather on its way, home owners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter. RISING dAmp is an issue that affects many of our older properties which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people have relocated to homes that suffer from rising damp which can be associated with health problems. Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house every day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells. moulds can produce various allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are especially vulnerable. Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising damp and are there to help. They will come to your damp home and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under your timber floored home. Specially adapted for our New Zealand conditions and applications it provides a layer of protection against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently, is that many owners of properties which had underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it also provided protection against liquefaction after the earthquakes. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote and complimentary appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more information.

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

ced n a l a B ure Press on lati i t n e V

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.

A West Coast welcome in the heart of Redwood, beautifully refurbished and something for all the family. TRY OUR WONDERFUL MENU & DAILY SPECIALS

THE sensational Celine Toner returns to the Hornby WMC this Saturday. Last at the club in April performing ‘Full Circle’ with her sisters, Celine’s next show features her daughter Samantha and long time guitarist Ian ‘e Doctor’ Jeffries. Born in Glasgow, Scotland into a musical family, it was inevitable that Celine would follow the same path. As a teenager, her family emigrated to NZ and there began a wonderful and ful lling musical career. At 13 she was winning talent quests and Country Music Awards all around the country and it wasn’t long before she was venturing internationally with performances across the globe. She has graced such stages as e Grand Ole Opry, e Melbourne Concert Hall, e Sydney Opera House, e Bob Hope Centre in the US and the Chinese National eatre in Beijing. She has toured Australia twice with e Royal Scots Dragoon Guards as well as Tours of New Zealand and the USA. Celine has worked with NZ superstars such as Jodi Vaughan, Brendan Dugan, Patsy Rigger, Suzanne Prentcie, Gray Bartlett,

Welcome to the public launch and presentation of Living Well Park Lane

35 Whiteleigh Ave, Tower Junction, Christchurch. Come along and enjoy bubbles, canapés and a presentation with special guests in this very unique retirement community!

You’re invited to this very special event

Our buildings are designed to enhance the way you live

Inspired by the international Living Building Challenge principles, we have created a retirement development that is regenerative both for the local community and the local environment.

It’s been our mission to create aesthetically beautiful buildings using the fundamentals of good architectural design and built from technologically advanced, natural and locally sourced materials.

Arvida has partnered with leading architects Jasmax to create a living environment designed to help residents remain engaged with the greater community and be truly part of things. So rather than a closed and gated village, we’ve designed

The attitude of living well

an open one. And rather than taking charge of everything, we’re providing opportunities to support, grow, cook, bake and even help run things. From creating produce for our on-site café and market days, to caring for the gardens, chooks and animals, there is opportunity here to be involved as much or as little as you’d like. We call it the Arvida attitude of living well, and it’s all about providing you with choices.

• One, two or three bedroom large luxury apartments in four floorplans • Thermally insulated homes with superior seismic integrity built-in for Christchurch

• Fresh produce daily, grown in raised garden beds and glasshouses • Kids taking part, learning life skills and caring for the gardens and animals • Hassle-free and efficient transport, with a fleet of electric and hybrid cars provided for residents’ use.

• Wellness centre and coaches, café, gym, pool, crèche, chemist and doctors’ rooms
