Rebuild starts soon

BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Construction of the new Mt Pleasant Memorial Community Centre could begin next month. The centre (right), which is owned by the Mt Pleasant Residents Association, was damaged in the earthquakes and later demolished. The group has since been based in a temporary home while working to find funding to rebuild the facility. Already, $3.1m has been

gathered for the rebuild through insurance, grants and fundraising and a further $650,000 is needed to complete the rebuild. Residents association presi-

dent Derek McCullough said the association had the bulk of the funding and was just waiting to receive consent to start construction. The group hoped to have

construction under way within a month and the centre completed by Christmas, he said. Last week, residents of the area and association members came together to discuss a campaign to raise the remainder of the money. The group came up with the funding campaign, Sponsor a Square Foot, which allows people to buy a square foot of the centre. Each square foot will cost $100. •Turn to page 2

No plans to move pre-school BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Busy C’s Pre-school will continue to operate out of its site on Voelas Rd in spite of Lyttelton West School’s relocation next year. The pre-school has been based on the Lyttelton West School site alongside the school for nearly 20 years and will celebrate its birthday on February 28. The school has since merged with Lyttelton Main School and will be moving from the Voleas Rd site to Oxford St next year. Busy C’s Pre-school licensee Caro Davidson said once the school relocated, the pre-school

could become quite isolated. It has a lease on the current site until the end of 2016. However, it was given the option to stay on the site for another few years and would like to do so, she said. “Ideally we want to move into the village near the Lyttelton Primary School’s new site to be amidst the education hub.” She said the pre-school would continue to provide early childhood education and as much it would like to find flat land near the new school, it was also alright with staying put for the next few years. She said the pre-school always

had a good relationship with Lyttelton West School and it was a shame it was moving. The pre-school had expressed interest in a couple of sites with flat land but were waiting for the opportunity to discuss possibilities with certainty, she said. “There is still a lot of uncertainty in the community around what people are doing with their properties and it is taking time for them to explore all their possibilities – including our expression of interest.” She said there was no rush for the pre-school to move but it was an option. Education Infrastructure Service

head Kim Shannon said Busy C’s Pre-school is, and will continue to be an important part of education in the area. “We are supporting the preschool to stay on the Lyttelton West School site while the site is still owned by the Ministry. “We recently extended our lease with Busy C’s until the end of 2016 and we will continue to work with them to ensure that they have an option for a space available to them.” She said decisions have yet to be made about what will happen to the Lyttelton West Site once the merged school moves onto the

Lyttelton Main School’s site. Once a school site is vacant, a decision is made as to whether the property is still required for educational purposes, she said. “If not, it is declared surplus and transferred to Land Information New Zealand, which administers the Public Works Act disposal process. The future of the property will be determined during this process.” Busy C’s Pre-school will celebrate its 20th birthday with a ceremony which will be held at the pre-school to mark the milestone. All past, present and future family of the pre-school are welcome to attend the event.

Centre rebuild could start soon • From page 1 Mr McCullough said the idea came from the fundraising technique of the community hall which was built in 1945. The residents provided half the funding for the hall, he said.

Those who have purchased a square foot of the centre will receive a certificate with their name and the number of square feet they have bought. Their names would also be honoured in an artwork for the community’s ef-

forts to re-establish the building. Mr McCullough said it was an opportunity for the community to get in behind the centre. “We’re one of only two community centres in Christchurch that is owned by residents.”

He said the group was excited with the plans and once it was built it would be self sufficient. “It’s a really exciting building.” Local firm Leighs Construction has been chosen as the preferred tender for the centre rebuild.

Road plan makes progress BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD Mt Pleasant School’s plan to make roads around the school safer has taken another step forward. Last week the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board approved the school’s proposal to install the footpath and recessed parking bays opposite the front gate on Major Hornbrook Rd. The parking bays and footpath will be installed into the grass berm on the eastern side of the road with parking restrictions to coincide with the school’s opening times. The footpath will allow pupils to walk safely to a patrolled school crossing and make the road less congested. Some existing trees and shrubs will need to be removed to install the footpath and parking bays, and will be replanted where possible. No stopping restrictions will also be installed on the western side of the road and a loading zone outside the school gates with a stopping restriction of two minutes. The community board also approved a proposal to introduce a school patrol on the road to ensure pupils can cross the road safely. Community board chairwoman Sara Templeton said the proposals passed unanimously at the meeting. School principal Chris Nord said gaining approval from the

FIGHTERS: Parents and supporters are determined to make Mt Pleasant School roads safer. board was really good news for the school. “We certainly are very thankful for the changes they are making.” He said the changes would help make the road a lot safer for the pupils and parents and work on parking issues. “It will fix and alleviate some of the parking challenges that we face.” The approval of the school patrol would also mean a pedestrian crossing will be installed to

coincide with the new footpath, he said. The only downside was the footpath leading to Billy’s Track would stop, and the school would like to see it extended, he said. Mr Nord said the school would continue to push for that to be extended in the next project because it would be the final piece of the jigsaw. The changes follow on from the school’s successful campaign to lower the speed limit on Major

A group of local musicians have written a tribute song for the late Sir Peter Blake. The group, called BrotherHood, wrote The Great Man of the Sea to remember his contribution to sailing with Mt Pleasant singer Rachel Hamilton on vocals. This summer marks 25 years since he won the Whitbread ‘round the world’ yacht race, as well as 2015 being 20 years since he lead Team NZ to its first victory in the America’s Cup providing inspiration for the song. It is now available for purchase on iTunes store.

Reserves’ new names

Public consultation for new names for two Duvauchelle reserves closed on Monday. The consultation was on the proposals for Bayview Reserve and Duvauchelle Reserve, both on Bayview Crescent, be renamed to Ron Nuttall Reserve and Marshall Reserve. Ron Nuttall was a holiday home owner in Duvauchelle who promoted and co-coordinated the majority of the planting in the reserve. Marshall is in recognition of the Marshall family who started the initial subdivision in the area. The report with submissions will now go to the Akaroa-Wairewa Community Board and city council for discussion.

OUR PEOPLE

Professor puts stress on impact Psychology professor and researcher Julia Rucklidge, of Mt Pleasant, is an expert on how diet impacts mental health. Now thousands of people have tuned in online to hear about her work. She spoke to Gabrielle Stuart More than 16,000 people have watched your TEDx talk online, now – did you ever expect this kind of interest? I didn’t at all. You just don’t know how well it will spread and where it will go. I always thought if I hit 10,000 views I would be over the moon, but now it’s hard to know if it will keep growing, or are we at the end of it? What was the biggest challenge for you in giving the talk? At the start, it was memorising what I wanted to say. When they told me I would have to memorise all 18 minutes of it I thought no way, that isn’t possible. I hadn’t memorised anything since I was

ON STAGE: Julia Rucklidge speaking at the TEDx Christchurch conference last year about the role of nutrition in treating mental health issues. in high school, and now I’m in my 40s. But I’ve seen TEDx talks before and thought how do they do that? And it’s because you rehearse it over and over and over again. I worked so hard on that talk, it was the hardest talk I have given in my career to date. I’ve given talks before, but I usually get an hour so you could go into a lot

more detail – fitting it into 18 minutes meant that every word had to count. How difficult was it to get up on stage? It’s terrifying. The whole idea of doing it completely terrified me, mostly because of what I am speaking about, because it is controversial. I took risks. I’m a psychologist not a psychiatrist, so

there is always the risk people will say you don’t know what you’re doing. But I thought if I don’t speak up for consumers, who will? It’s so ingrained into our society that the medications are the only way. It’s not to say medications aren’t helpful for some people; they save lives. But long-term studies show that they can cause harm for some people and in some cases, outcomes are worse for people who took medications compared to people who didn’t. What sort of reaction did you get from people at TEDx, when you gave the talk? Well I got a standing ovation, so what more can you ask for? It was so good, except for the lights: people don’t appreciate that onstage it’s so bright you don’t see the audience. So I thought, are they standing up? I didn’t know. This message is all new to me, but how new is it to the medical industry? It’s ancient, in that Hippocrates said ‘let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food’, and it goes right back to the book of Daniel. So this is not a new idea. Going back 100 years ago the 1910 People’s Home Library said the number one cause of acquired insanity was imperfect nutrition, so that was known by our greatgrandparents.

But then medications came along, which at the time were such a huge breakthrough, to think that we could affect the chemicals in the brain. Medications did make a huge impact on us at the time; it cleared the mental health wards. But I think, as a consequence, we lost our way and we forgot about the role of nutrition. So that’s the big picture – how do people do that practically, in their daily life? Part of it is teaching our children to talk and think about what they eat. Teach them that they have a choice, every time they put something in their mouth. I have two children myself, and it’s so hard to do when you’re surrounded by people who feed their children things like soda every day. Why is it when they are choosing to feed their children these unhealthy drinks and foods, it’s me who is punished, feeling like a bad mother?” People think that eating well must be expensive, but that’s not always true, it’s just a perception. Buy things in season. Look at getting rid of some of the packaging and make something from raw ingredients. That’s a step in the right direction, it tastes so much better and it’s free from all the preservatives.

of nutrition on mental health I always say shop around the outside of the supermarket: Don’t go in the inside because the deeper you go the more processed the food is. If you really want to make changes, start shopping at the farmers markets. The question is, is this food? It’s cheap, but why don’t we eat cardboard, that would be cheap too? If you don’t pay for it at the cash register you’ll pay further down the line. How personal is this for you? Were there personal experiences that drove you into this field? I think everyone has relatives or close friends who have suffered from mental illness, so we’re all affected. I am aware of many people whose lives have been severely compromised by mental illness. I have seen suicides from such a young age, and I think, could we have done better? But fortunately or unfortunately for science, I am a fairly resilient individual myself. What about the diet side. Have you always eaten healthily yourself? I don’t always eat well. But my diet has changed massively over time. As you research and discover different things your diet changes, but it’s usually just in small ways. I used to eat cheerios as a kid with sugar on the top,

The adventure. It was the unknown. I heard New Zealand was a great place and I had a job offer here, so I thought, why not? And that was obviously before kids? Yes, a lot has changed! I am actually married to a journalist, so we moved over here together. Now the TEDx talk has gone so well, what’s the next challenge for you? Well, we published the study I talked about at TEDx, which was about using micro-nutrients instead of a placebo in adults with ADHD. Ethics wouldn’t allow us to trial it with kids, but because the trial proved it was safe we can run a similar trial with children. That has been going a year now, and it’s going really well. We have two more studies about to be launched, one to help women with PMS, and another to help people who want to quit smoking. That was based on a pilot trial. It’s totally not a use you’d expect when you think about micro-nutrients, but we had a really nice case study that showed some encouraging effects in smokers of cannabis, so that will be very interesting.

FAMILY: Although they’re not always fans of restrictions on their diet, Professor Rucklidge works hard to teach her 10 and 12-yearold sons, Duncan and Toby, to think about what they eat. which I can’t believe. And I think about what I ate at university, and I think I could have coped so much better with the stress if I had been better nourished. You mentioned your own children - how old are they? They’re 10 and 12. That can be an interesting age. What do they think of your work?

They’re sick of it. They think a psychologist is someone who tells kids how to eat. They’ve regularly expressed their dissatisfaction with having a mother who cares so much about what they eat. But they’re incredibly well educated on food, so when they do make the decision to drink soda, they know what they’re doing to themselves when they drink it. It’s not that we

don’t allow it, but they both know what they are doing. They both bake and we’ll often make cookies at home. You obviously weren’t born in New Zealand – when did you come here? In 2000, I moved here from Canada. What was it that brought you here?

Students star in Peter Pan Valentine’s Day in Little River Love birds in Little River will be able to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic night as part of a free event. The event, Love Little River, is a celebration of love in all its forms and is organised by the Little River Wairewa Community Trust. The event will take place at Okuti Valley on Saturday from 4-8pm and will feature live music from The Devilish Mary Duo. Trust secretary Marcus Puentener said the event would be family friendly and relaxed. Those attending could bring their own food, bubbles and romance, he said. “It’s all about love - love your community, love your friends and love your family.” He said there was plenty of accommodation options for those wanting to celebrate Valentine’s Day at Little River. “A little love goes a long way, so surprise your valentine this year with big love in Little River.”

Redcliffs teen Kate Hellings will star as a lead role in The Anthony Harper Summer Theatre Season show Peter Pan. The 17-year-old will star as Wendy alongside Christchurch Boys’ High School student Ben Ashby, 17, who will play Peter. The show, held at Riccarton House, is part of Christchurch City Council’s SummerTimes programme and runs until February 22. Tinker Bell, Captain Hook and the Lost Boys are played by other members of The Court Youth Company alongside three professional actors – Vanessa Kumar who finished her professional actor’s training at Toi Whakaari in Wellington last year; Andrew Ford, a former Christchurch resident now based in Auckland; and Derek Flores, a Canadian improvisational actor who has made his home in Christchurch. The Court Youth Company is selected from the top talent in the city amongst 17-21-year-olds and have worked with and received training at The Court over the last year. Behind the scenes is a team from The Court Theatre including director Daniel Pengelly, costume designer Aimee Reed, set and props designer Oliver Morse, stage manager Alice Pardoe and operator Alex Le Cocq.

World Cup cricket just the Excitement is ramping up as Christchurch prepares for the ICC Cricket World Cup. Emma-Jane McLennan reports THE WORLD’S biggest cricket event is set to be launched with a bang this week as tourists flock to Christchurch for the opening events and matches. The host city will be showcasing the best it has to offer, including the controversial Hagley Oval where some of the top teams in the world - including the Black Caps - will contend for the highly-prized ICC Cricket World Cup. The event has created a positive buzz throughout Christchurch, city council event manager Richard Attwood said. “The three matches [to be hosted at the Hagley Oval] are just about sold out now (the first is sold out) and the way the team is performing has created a hugely positive feeling around Christchurch and the country.” He said the events will pull in huge amounts of money for Christchurch: “We expect to see the city bursting at the seams and awash with colour in the coming weeks.” Fireworks and music will usher in the 44-day tournament at the biggest live broadcast event in New

Zealand history, at Hagley Park tomorrow Some of our top Kiwi artists will perform at the free opening event, with Hayley Westenra, Ginny Blackmore, Sol3Mio and the New Zealand Army Band entertaining crowds while a massive backyard cricket game is played and sporting celebrities welcome 14 teams from around the world. Showcasing Christchurch is the name of the game, and the opening ceremony will also include kapa haka performances, dancing, fire poi and one of the biggest fireworks displays Christchurch has ever seen. Anyone is welcome to come, with free entry and plenty of food for sale on site. Event organisers are expecting crowd sizes similar to other major Hagley Park events. The city council’s Fanzone in Victoria Square is currently being set up ahead of a 10-day stint as a hub for cricket fans, with backyard cricket games, food and drink, family days and live big-screen coverage of all the games from the Hagley Oval. It will be opened with a ‘Heroes and Heroines’ themed night of musical entertainment on February 13, with performances from Bic Runga, Tiki Taane and DJ Reno. Following the Black Caps opening game on February 14, Kiwi musician Jordan Luck will take the stage. A Fantrail will lead from the Fanzone to the oval on the threematch days. The cup features games played in host cities throughout New Zealand and Australia, but Christchurch has

development of an international cricket venue at Hagley Park, but were overruled by the city council and the Environment Court. The oval was built last year, and has already hosted a test match between New Zealand v Sri Lanka, ahead of the cup. The two teams will go head-tohead again on Saturday and the whole city is booked out already, Mr Attwood said. “All the accommodation in the city is fully booked for the duration of the ICC Cricket World Cup so we will have a lot of visitors enjoying themselves all over town.” The Parkview on Hagley confirmed it was fully booked over the weekend of the first match, as was the Riccarton Motor Lodge. The owner of the Athena Motel on Riccarton Rd said they were “almost full”. “There’s been a lot of bookings around those dates. Obviously a lot of tourists want to capitalise on their travel plans. It’s bringing people into Christchurch and I’d imagine most other motels will be the same.” It’s not just accommodation that will benefit from the big spend, with bars and restaurants, especially those in the surrounding areas, readying themselves for a roaring trade. Marty Fuller, owner of Trevinos and The Craic Irish Bar, says they are “absolutely” expecting a lot of customers: “We’re definitely expecting an influx of tourists in the bars.” Mr Fuller also owns the Christchurch City Park Motel, which is fully booked over the couple of weeks of cricket.

tonic for city “It’s going to be absolutely massive, especially over the weekend, when the first match is. There’s also the Crusaders’ first match the night before, the Speight’s Coast to Coast and Valentine’s Day. It’s going to be a huge weekend and we’ll have to staff accordingly,” he said. The Running Bull owner Ben Cartwright said he will be prepared for big crowds at the bar and restaurant around match days. “There are going to be a lot of extra people around town on Thursday and Friday night. Obviously there’s rugby as well so there’s going to be a big few drinks.” He said he’ll have extra staff on those nights “and I’ll be around as well.” Groups of Christchurch residents are expected to be revelling in the atmosphere also, Mr Attwood said: “Cricket is very much a family-orientated activity . . . we expect to see the hospitality industry around Christchurch buzzing throughout the tournament.” The games themselves are almost at capacity, with up to 18,500 people expected at each match. The opener - New Zealand v Sri Lanka - will launch the tournament at the Hagley Oval. Huge crowds are expected around Hagley Park for the opening match, and Deans Ave Precinct Society chairwoman Claire Mulcock says parking could be a problem. “It’s going to be a great occasion obviously, but we do have some

concerns about traffic and parking issues. We’ll be able to handle it for a few days though.” It appears the event organisers are one step ahead, recommending that cricket-goers use traffic website tfc.govt.nz to plan their route. The website also has parking information for those trying to find a spot to leave their car, and recommendations on how to avoid traffic if you’re not going to the cricket. More than 300 volunteers are ready to help spectators and fans, at matches as well as in various roles throughout the city. City councillor Tim Scandrett says their contribution will be a big factor in the success of the cup. “The roles that our volunteers play in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 experience for fans will be key in showing them how welcoming Christchurch and its people are.” St John is prepared for the events, with 11 staff at each warm up game and opening ceremony, 13 at each of the main matches and 2-3 on site at the Fanzone every day. “It will be busy but we are confident that we have planned sufficiently,” said Tony Dowell, St John regional events manager.

James Daniels more ‘alive’ after heart surgery

For Only

$10

www.liquidlaundromats.co.nz

Open heart surgery was the only option for well-known radio personality James Daniels after a debilitating common cold started affecting his breathing and blood flow. What he originally thought was “the 90-day cough” dragged on for 150 days, but Mr Daniels dismissed the symptoms and by the time he went to the doctor late last year, the virus had spread to his heart. “I had been short of breath, and I told the doctor it might be asthma. But she said it was a heart problem – the aortic valve was damaged and leaking, so my heart was working doubly hard. When they used the words ‘open heart surgery’ it made it very serious.” The problem was similar to what Crusader Robbie Fruean suffered in 2013-14, sidelining him for matches and requiring two heart surgeries. But when Mr Daniels realised the problem could be fixed through heart surgery, he was relieved: “I was relieved to find out what it was. I never once considered something could or would

go wrong [with the surgery], I had a lot of confidence in the doctors. We live in a wonderful country with the health system that is available to us,” he said. Three weeks later he had a successful surgery, fixing his heart which had expanded to twice its usual size and was pressing on his lungs. The cardiologists advice that “you’ll feel 20 years younger” turned out to be true, Mr Daniels said. “People have said to me “You sound more alive,” and I fell it too. It feels like I’ve got a heap of adrenalin in my body and it’s bloody great. I hadn’t realised how bad it had got.” Mr Daniels is the fulltime host of The Breeze Christchurch Breakfast 94.5FM, and he returned to the studio on January 26. He says without the operation he wouldn’t have the same quality of life he does today. “Particularly for males in New Zealand, my advice would be – go to the doctor earlier. I thought ‘I’ll be right soon’ but I wasn’t.” • Heart Week runs until February 15. You can donate at heartfoundation.org.nz

Charteris Bay Golf Club on the hunt for new members Charteris Bay Golf Club will hold its first ever open day this weekend to showcase what it has to offer. The club turned 100 last year and this weekend will be the first time it opens its greens and clubhouse to the public. It will give the opportunity for people interested in golf or the club itself to visit and see the historic grounds. The club has a rich history in the area since the land was gifted to the club by Mr R Orton Bradley free of charge in 1912 to use as golfing grounds. Women’s club captain Sally Jacobs said the club would love some new blood. She said there were currently 111 men and 46 women registered at the club and it would love to increase the number of women playing. Younger women were also welcome, she said. The open day will be on a normal Saturday afternoon club day with

GREAT RESULTS: Sumner Running Club’s junior athletes had a good weekend of results at the athletics meet at Rawhiti Domain on Saturday. Beth Hunter (right) in the 11 year girls finished third in the high jump while Luca Tracey (top right) won the 9-year-old boys long jump with a personal best jump of 4m and Leo O’Neill (above) finished in fifth place in the 7-year-old boys long jump.

players starting at noon. Beginners can arrive at 3pm and current members of the club can provide information about the club, a tour and some golfing tips as well as equipment. The game will finish at about 4.30pm and those attending will then enjoy the social side of the club with the traditional aftermatch happy hour. Mrs Jacobs said the club was full of very welcoming members and was looking forward to showing people what it was about. “It’s the most beautiful site to play golf. “It’s a lovely way to get to know people in the district.” She said the club was a great place to meet people and entertain. “Post earthquakes there must be people looking for something to get stuck into.” The 2015 season officially starts today at 9.30am for 18 and 9-hole lady members and on February 28 for all Saturday players.

Heathcote cricketers take one-day title BY KYLE KNOWLES

Heathcote Cricket Club are the back-to-back senior A one-day champions At Burnside Park on Sunday Heathcote beat top qualifiers Merivale-Papanui by three wickets after both sides took care of Halswell and Sumner in their semifinals last week. In the final, Merivale-Papanui batted first and were bowled out for 143 in the 36th over. Grant Stewart was the stand-out bowler for Heathcote taking 4/7 off 8.1 overs. Heathcote captain John Garry said Stewart’s spell was the turning point in the game and was the difference in the end. “They were 90 for one early on and in a good position but Grant came on and halted the runs. He was magnificent and it was a great effort as their batting line-up just collapsed”. Shane McConnell and Garry also chipped in with 2/25 and 2/13 each. Garry said at the innings break they were confident because it was a great batting track and MerivalePapanui should have scored over 140. However, Heathcote had a batting collapse of their own.

WINNING SIDE: Heathcote captain John Garry plays a shot and looks for a quick single earlier in the season, his side won the senior A oneday title on Sunday. Garry said it was a nail-biting Heathcote made hard work of chasing down the score eventually run chase and was relieved the crossing the line in the 40th over middle and lower order finished the run chase off. with three wickets to spare. “It was great to go back-to-back.

Good weather continues BY AARON LOCK, SURF COACH, SUMNER It’s been an amazing six weeks of hot weather and fun waves. The high pressure systems have been sitting in just the right place. Surf wise it was small but clean for most of January with fun 2-feet northeasterly groundswells most days and then the odd bigger northeasterly wind swell to mix it up. The month finished with a solid east swell producing over head-high waves for an entire week. The pattern changed last week with a huge southerly swell pushing up the coast but the long range forecast is for more settled weather and high pressure systems so all going well we should continue to get some good weather along with east swells out of the tropics plus some more south swell pushing up from the southern ocean. The water temperature has been amazing too, sitting at more than 20 deg C for some weeks. The beach has been packed with hundreds of people out enjoying an epic summer, it’s great to see. The contest scene has been busy with the national championships at Piha and the South Island Grom series running closer to home. Local surfers have once again performed well.

Whiteside made the quarter finals of the open men’s at the nationals and then went on to place fourth in the under-20 event at the Billabong Grom event at the Mount. Marshall didn’t have great contest success but impressed selectors during the squad trainings. Other results at the nationals include Raglans Billy Stairmand winning the open men’s and New Brighton’s Shayne Baxter winning the stand-up paddle board. New Brighton’s Henry Hawke won the junior longboard.

Learning through adventure and pLay

Nestled at the top of Lyttelton Harbour, Cholmondeley Children’s Centre has offered short-term respite care to children in need for 90 years. Four years ago the centre’s historic hillside home was lost to the quake, and the not-forprofit organisation is now rebuilding thanks to its substantial community support. A successful fundraising campaign for the build has allowed the organisation to refocus on the fundraising required to fund its $1 million a year operation.

imagination to explore and develop all kinds of new ways to use the junk. “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure” is certainly true here as you watch the children’s ingenuity and creativity as they play together so enthusiastically.

Edwina Poynton leads the education team at Cholmondeley. She says that Cholmondeley’s focus is on building resilience in children, and that both the new building and the education programme have been designed specifically for this purpose.

The child-led experiences are a far cry from the tightly structured world children often live in, and they thrive with plenty of natural play and interaction with the world around them. The atmosphere at Cholmondeley creates a therapeutic environment, which often negates the need for more intense interventions such as therapy.

“Our research shows that involvement with Cholmondeley’s service helps children to develop their resilience to the current challenges within their home environment and in turn has the same effect on their families,” she says. “Children are here for a short time, usually three to five days. Our focus is on the child’s psychological and emotional wellbeing. We do not school in the traditional sense but concentrate on developing the NZ Curriculum key competencies of thinking, using language, symbols and text, managing self, participating and contributing and relating to others. Our holistic philosophies develop the child’s sense of self and wellbeing so that they discover and grow their strengths.” Cholmondeley does this by using adventure and the environment as teaching tools, through its Adventure Based Learning programme. “From baking, fishing, art and woodwork to rock climbing, kayaking, ropes courses and bush walks, there’s plenty of opportunity to have fun whilst learning. These activities help the child to develop self-esteem, determination, independence and social skills,” says Edwina. ‘Discovery Time’ also provides an opportunity to develop these competencies through activity-based, child-directed learning and the “Play Pod” or “Te Whare Taonga” which is full of old junk is a great opportunity for the children to use their

Children at Cholmondeley, who are aged between three and twelve, have ‘strengths charts’ placed around the building, which the adults and other children add to throughout their visit. When the children leave, their chart goes with them, helping the growth the child has experienced to continue and become more permanent. During the Celebration of Learning at the end of their stay it is a joy to see the look on children’s faces when they read out the comments written about them. “Our evaluations clearly show that even after one visit, children feel recuperated and relaxed. The restorative nature of Cholmondeley enables them to access their strengths and abilities, and this makes them more resilient in facing whatever the stresses and strains are at home,” she says. Cholmondeley’s practice model is backed up by substantial research, and the team believe their work is leading the way in providing holistic short term respite care for children, with ground breaking results. As one 10 year old girl put it, “Since coming to Cholmondeley I am confident and I can stand up for myself. I am a much better friend now.”

Cholmondeley needs your support The work that Cholmondeley Children’s Centre does to support children and their families is largely community funded. Cholmondeley needs to raise over $1m a year to provide its much needed services. Every little bit helps, and it’s easy to donate. Visit www.cholmondeley.co.nz today. This is the tenth in a series of articles about Cholmondeley Children’s Centre. To view previous articles and find out more, please visit the website, or call 03 329 9832.

Jam packed

Homemade jam makes a lovely gift. If you can’t find jam-setting sugar, normal sugar is fine – your jam will just need to cook a little longer. Always test a little on a saucer to ensure you get that perfect consistency. Strawberry and lime jam A little lime zest added to strawberry jam gives it a subtle and fresh flavour. It’s a favourite on freshly baked scones. Or spoon it over thin crepes with a little creme fraiche, and it’s just as delicious on toast and bagels. Or what about a Swiss roll?

Ingredients 500 g strawberries, hulled and cut in half 500 g jam-setting sugar ½ lime, zested 1 tbsp butter Directions Place the strawberries, sugar and

Makes 3 cups

lime zest in a heavy saucepan. Slowly bring to a simmer, stirring continuously over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Then bring it to a boil. Continue to boil for 8-10 minutes. Place a little on a saucer and if it is sticky and starting to set, remove it from the heat. If not, continue to boil for a further few minutes. Remove from heat, stir through butter until melted. Pour the jam into sterilised jars and seal.

Nectarine and vanilla jam Makes 4 x 250ml Ingredients 1½ kgs nectarines, ripe 1 cup water 1 vanilla pod 2 tbsp fresh lime juice, or use lemon juice 1½ kgs raw sugar Directions

Using the point of a sharp paring knife, score each nectarine. Place the fruit in a bowl then cover with boiling water and leave for 15 minutes. Peel the fruit, discard the skin and stones then roughly chop the flesh. Put the fruit in a heavy-based

saucepan or preserving pan. Add the water. Slit the vanilla pod and scrape the seeds into the pan. Add the pod along with the lime or lemon juice and the sugar. Stir to combine then bring to a boil and stir while cooking, for 45 minutes. Ladle into hot, sterilised jars.

GARDENING

Oderings School Gardens Show THE CANTERBURY Horticultural Society will host the first Oderings School Gardens Show from March 6-8. The school’s exhibits will be housed inside the society’s Horticultural Hall in South Hagley Park to insulate it from the vagaries of the weather. The entry fee will be by gold coin donation capped at $5 for a family. The CHS is promoting it as gala event so has arranged Jed’s Rollickin’ Gelato and The Brew Crew to be on site for the entirety of the show. The demise of the controversial Ellerslie International Flower Show has been the stimulus for this show. “The introduction of the schools category in the 2014 Ellerslie Show was a huge success arousing much public interest and we wanted to capitalise on this initiative and maintain the momentum of young children actively participating in the design and setting up of a garden of their own” said CHS manager Tony Kunowski. “We want this show to have minimal parental and teacher input and maximum student input. It’s also important that the pupils’ involvement form part of

GREEN FINGERS: Aidanfield Christian School pupils learning more about gardening and putting their skills to the test. their existing curriculum rather than being a mere adjunct to their studies” said Mr Kunowski. The CHS has received eight entries from the following schools: West Melton Primary, St Albans Catholic, Cathedral Grammar, Aidanfield Christian, Shirley Intermediate, Bishopdale, West Spreydon, and Bromley. The

judging criteria are fourfold: Wow factor (30 per cent), design and theme (25 per cent), educational elements and age-appropriate student input (30 per cent) and finally construction, presentation and finishing (15 per cent). Each school will be required to produce a storyboard to describe their garden theme. A planting

plan is also required so visitors can identify all the plants used in the exhibit. A typical response has been that of Aidanfield Christian School where an enthusiastic team of year 5-7 pupils began work last year on learning more about gardening and garden design in preparation for the garden show. This group was already a member of the larger school Garden Club that meets every Tuesday lunchtime to maintain the school gardens. Supported by staff and parents, these pupils have grown plants

MOTORING

Odyssey packs in the passengers

HONDA’S ODYSSEY is one of the company’s longest serving and most successful nameplates. It was first introduced in 1994/95 and 20 years later it is still one of the world’s most desirable people-movers. The fifth-generation model has just landed here in New Zealand and it picks up on the concept of its predecessors. The newcomer arrives here in two specifications, put simply there is a base model eight-seater (S), and a high-spec seven-seat model (L). They are priced at $45,900 and $52,500 respectively. Both are powered by the same four-cylinder engine. The 2.4litre unit is rated at 129kW with 225Nm of torque. While it seems much like the engine from previous generation models, Honda has done a little bit of work lowering the areas of specific power output so it is more responsive low down and less peaky at the top end. It is also 15 per cent more economical than before, helped somewhat by the inclusion of idle stopstart. Honda claims a 7.6-litre per 100km (37mpg) combined cycle average for the Odyssey S and I’d believe that would be achievable. My testing time provided fuel usage results of 9l/100km (31mpg) with around 6l/100km (47mpg) being consumed instantaneously at 100km/h (engine speed 2000rpm). These are good figures for a big

SPECIFICATIONS

vehicle but you’d expect that from Honda, it has a high fuel saving manufacturing philosophy. Helping provide those figures is a new inclusion of continuously variable automatic transmission. CVT doesn’t load the engine like a traditional automatic gearbox, consequently, the engine feels responsive and eager through the transmission. Honda has tinkered a lot with CVT to the point where it is becoming fitted to its wider product line-up. The Odyssey’s unit provides immediate drive and works the engine freely albeit without it pulling unnecessarily high in the rev band. While the specific points of power output are still quite high – 6200rpm and 4000rpm for power and torque respectively – the engine/gearbox combination are well matched so that fuel isn’t wasted. And what’s more, throttle response is decisive and immediate acceleration is ushered in willingly. An 8.9sec standstill to 100km/h time is possible. One other aspect of the CVT unit is the driver’s ability to lock

Price: Honda Odyssey S, $45,900. Dimensions: Length,4840mm; width, 1800mm; height, 1695mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 2354cc, 129kW, 225Nm, continuously variable transmission. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9.8sec.

HONDA ODYSSEY S: Traditional people-mover concept. the transmission into pre-set points, that can be done through steering wheel-mounted paddles. On that subject, as before, the gear lever is central console-mounted so that an area forward of the two front seats is left vacant so that access side to side isn’t hindered. And that is one of the Odyssey’s characteristic features, it is very people-friendly inside, space is generous and accessing any of the seats isn’t taxing, especially into the rear rows, the floor is low and the doors are wide opening. The Odyssey has a walkthrough design to approach, accentuated more in the seven-seater, but in both variants the in-cabin area is thought out well for practicality

and comfort. The two rear rows of seats can be configured in several modes so that items of unusual sizes can be transported as cargo. The rear seats especially, tumble and fold to make a flat floor, the mechanism to do that is easy and intuitive. Not only does the Odyssey buyer get the benefit of a functional interior package, they also get a high level of specification, especially in terms of electronic componentry and convenience items. Some I particularly like are the electric side door on the left passenger’s side, rear seat controls for the air conditioning and comprehensive vehicle setting displays. I wasn’t able to muster a full

load during my time with the Odyssey but I did take my daughter and some of her friends into the city for a celebration. The Odyssey is the perfect peoplemover and it feels much the same to drive laden or unladen. At all speeds it is light and almost nimble to drive. It is soft in the suspension so that bumps and ruts are absorbed without transmitting the uneven surfaces into the cabin. The suspension is a blend of what is needed for that along with some gentle firming so that when corners arrive gravitational movement is kept well balanced. An acquaintance of mine has an Odyssey of the previous generation and she likes it for its comfort, ease of use and driveability. Plus it is also very Honda-like to drive, requiring no special effort. The newcomer embodies all of those principals and adds further elements of luxury and functionality. It will surely be just as popular as generations gone by.

Exercise

sharpens young adult brain Regular physical activity improves brain function even in young adults considered in their prime and at the height of cognitive ability, according to a new University of Otago study.

A

body of research already exists showing aerobic exercise improves brain function in older adults, but there is a limited amount of literature on how it affects young adults. The Otago researchers, led by Department of Psychology senior lecturer Dr Liana Machado, set out to test the oft-held belief that the brains of young adults in their prime might not benefit as much as older people from regular sustained exercise. They took 52 tertiary students, aged

between 18 to 30, and put them through a series of cognitive tests on a computer while measuring oxygen availability in the frontal lobe of their brains, as well as their selfreported exercise frequency. Dr Machado says their “surprising” findings, just published online in the journal Psychophysiology, show that both blood supply to the brain and cognitive functioning appear to benefit from regular exercise in young adults. “This provides compelling evidence that

regular exercise, at least five days per week, is a way to sharpen our cognitive ability as young adults – challenging the assumption that living a sedentary lifestyle leads to problems only later in life,” she says. The research also provides potential insight into understanding why people who regularly engage in aerobic exercise tend to function better on a cognitive level. “I think the idea that young people do not have to worry about exercising since they are in their prime developmentally is rapidly being overturned by mounting evidence that even the brains of young adults can benefit from regular exercise,” she says. “The exercise could involve brisk walking or more vigorous activity, and could be made up of a few 10-minute bouts of exercise,

rather than one single block of exercise,” she says. The researchers also found that body mass index was not a key factor in how well the brain functioned, indicating that regular engagement in physical activity may be more important than body weight. Dr Machado says she had noticed over the years that university students appeared progressively less fit. “I wondered whether we might find significant relationships between exercise levels, oxygen availability in the brain and cognition in the young adults, but no studies had considered this in healthy young adults.” These findings come at a time of increased scientific focus on links between exercise and cognitive health in older adults.
