Pier fireworks canned

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The popular annual fireworks display will not be held at the New Brighton Pier for at least two years due to repairs needed after the Valentine’s Day earthquake. There have been suggestions that it could relocate temporarily to Hagley Park or Scarborough. Last week, the city council announced that the pier needed $11 million of repairs, which will start in September and take 12 to 18 months. As a result, said a city council spokeswoman, the fireworks

display had to be relocated and it was looking at alternative venues. “The pier is a unique venue for a fireworks display and we hope to return once the repairs are finished,� she said.

NEW VENUE?: Scarborough has been suggested as the new venue for the annual fireworks display, normally held on the New Brighton Pier.

It is a blow to the seaside suburb that was badly hit in the February 22, 2011, earthquake and has struggled to recover. The annual fireworks display is a huge boost to businesses in the area.

About 10,000 people attend the event held in November each year. Burwood-Pegasus Community Board member Linda Stewart said she would push for it to stay in the area. But if it could not she would like to see it at Scarborough or Hagley Park. Community board member Tim Sintes said if the fireworks went to Sumner or Scarborough, it would be “diabolical� because there was only one road into the area. “We (New Brighton) cannot afford to lose one more thing

from the earthquakes,� he said. Sumner resident Susan Kaschula, who works at the Sumner Hub, said she personally thought it was sad New Brighton would not host the fireworks. She was interested to see if Sumner was a secondary choice for the city council. “It could be a very interesting possibility,� she said.

QE II land sale backed FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The sale of part of QE II Park to the Government to relocate two high schools has received the backing of the majority of residents. More than 400 submissions were received by the city council on whether to sell 11.5ha to the Ministry of Education for a dual site for Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ High Schools. An analysis of submissions showed that about 60 per cent of respondents said the sale should go ahead. The proposal has been controversial with some residents saying the land sale was a “forgone conclusion.” The schools would be sharing the park with the Eastern Recreation and Sports Centre. Of the other 170 respondents, 144 or 35 per cent disagreed with the city council’s proposal, 23 or six per cent responded ‘don’t know’, and the remaining three responses were unclear on their stance. Shirley Boys’ headmaster John Laurenson said he was pleased to get the support of the community.

REPLACED?: The sale of 11.5ha of QE II Park may go ahead after it received support recently. Inset: John Laurenson

“The school is planning and preparing for the move right now,” he said. Meanwhile, there has been support for the retention of the Travis Medical Centre’s car park to be retained.

Veterinary practice

IndIes journey This is my 26th year in this amazing profession and I have to admit sadly I have never experienced “Breeding” first hand. My son Isaac nags us all the time to breed Abbysinnians as we are so in love with our two, Spartacus and Piper. All of us wanted to breed from Lola (I had loads of clients and staff wanting a pup of hers!) but after we realized she had the dreaded “Split Pad Disease”, we felt this was a cruel trait to pass down to unsuspecting new owners. AND then she developed kidney cancer, so we made the right decision to desex her which has made absolutely no difference to her personality or the awesome family member she has become. Very good friends of mine (Mala and Kev) have for a while expressed an interest in breeding from their impressive, young White Swiss Shepherd dog (WSSD) “Indie”. All Mala’s life she has loved and owned German Shepherds and had her fair share of heartaches with illness and hereditary disease, which sadly goes with the breed. Mala and Kev’s last treasured pet “Hunter” among other things, ended up having spinal surgery for lumbosacral disease in her later years. Then she succumbed to degenerative myelopathy and ended up living out her days happily in a doggie wheelchair. So for my dear friends, their pets are an extension of themselves, to be loved and cherished and they will go to any lengths to ensure they have the best life possible. As Mala says, “After Hunter and her spinal injury and likely degenerative myelopathy, we wanted to get another dog that had as many safeguards against the diseases that were common to German Shepherds and other large breeds. Lucky for us we stumbled across Pandora Kennels and their White Swiss Shepherds. It was here that we found a breeder who does health testing, hip and elbow scoring and breeding of good personality matches with the aim of ultimately improving the WSSD. When we got Indie we never thought breeding from her would be an option but we quickly developed a friendship with Tanya and her family which has allowed us to embark on this journey. Tanya had watched Indie grow and became to realize she was a fine example of the breed. This means a good balance of desired temperament, conformation and breed requirements. Firstly Indie under went hip and elbow radiographs at McMaster & Heap to make sure her scores were good and she wasn’t going to pass down undesirable traits. DNA tests were also performed to check for common diseases in this breed. The main diseases tested for in this breed are Degenerative Myelopathy Von Willebrands and MDR1 (Multi drug resistance). A cheek swab is all that is needed. Indie passed all the tests with flying colours. Obviously Mala has her fully vaccinated and up to date with parasite control. As you can see from the photos, she’s a picture of glamour, confidence and health. The next step in the long process to “puppies” was finding a mate for Indie, changing the

pedigree papers to allow breeding and organizing the right time as Mala would need time off work to supervise Indie and her babies. WSSD’s can have large litters so many hands on deck were likely especially in the early weeks. The breeder Tanya looked carefully at males available and their bloodlines to make sure there wasn’t any inbreeding at play. Floyd from Levin was the lucky stud dog chosen. Indie came into season at the beginning of April, which started with bloodspots and lasted for about 10-14 days before she’d allow Floyd to mate her. When she ovulates this means she will stand for the male dog and allow mating. She may be mated several times over 2-4 days around this period. After ovulation and mating, there is another week where the bitch ‘cools down’ before she is totally safe to be walked on the streets again. So the waiting game now begins. How exciting for us all to follow Indie, her pregnancy and hopefully new babies in June/July. Firstly Mala and Kev will notice a change in behavior, maybe she will gain a bit of weight and her nipples will pink up. Catherine will be able to ultrasound at around 28 days to see if there are “multiple” fetal heart beats. A blood test at around day 22-28 can determine a pregnancy based on high relaxin levels. I will definitely keep you all posted – follow us on Facebook to learn more about Indie and her journey to new life! Now a little about the WSSDs from the Breeder…. White Swiss Shepherd dogs are relatively rare and new in New Zealand. The breed originates from German Shepherds, which included white sheepherding dogs when the breed was formed back in the 1800’s. The white colour became undesirable after WW2, so whites were only bred in secret. Luckily Switzerland approved a new breed in 1991 called White Swiss Shepherds and now this breed is recognized in most countries over the world. The White Swiss Shepherds still have similarities to their cousins the German Shepherds but everyone owning a white will notice the difference in looks and temperament. White Swiss Shepherds are family dogs who love children and visitors and are non-aggressive towards other dogs. They need regular exercise and excel in dog sports. Of course socialization and proper training is the key to a well mannered dog. What Mala and Kev say about their breed….. The things that impress us most about the breed are their personalities and physical stature. They are bred to be strong, particularly in the hips, an area where other breeds lack consistency and health. Their personality is 10/10- they are friendly, calm, loyal and protective when needed....they truly are mans best friend! The breed is one that, in our mind, represents a strength of character and presence that is unsurpassed. They simply are a fantastic breed! Dr Michele McMaster

All dogs are born good Dog attacks are back in the news again. Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue founder Abbey van der Plas (right) writes about perceptions of ‘dangerous breeds’. What are your views? Email fraser.walker@ starmedia.kiwi Why do I always feel so defensive whenever there is a dog attack in New Zealand? ‘Pitbull’ attack gets thrown around in the media and it makes all of us responsible owners cringe. The stares and whispers have lasted longer while walking lately, the head shaking and finger pointing has been more prominent, and the hate on social media has gotten completely out of control. Why? Because some people decide to get a dog, confine it to their yards, not socialise it with the outside world, not desex it, not register or microchip it, and then expect this dog to react appropriately when put in a situation it has never learned to cope with. The fact is when you get a dog, no matter what breed, it is your responsibility to train and socialise this dog. It is your responsibility

SOAP BOX to keep your dog and visitors to your home safe. Pitbulls are not born dangerous, I can guarantee you that, but they do require strong, responsible and knowledgeable owners. Yes, pitbulls were used for dog fighting, I am not denying this, but this does not at all mean that they are blind killing machines. Jack russells, chihuahuas, fox terriers and dachshunds were also all bred to hunt and kill other animals, and they too make amazing pets – when socialised and trained correctly.

All dogs are born good. The pitbulls you see in the media, and the dogs you see roaming your streets are the minority of bull breed dogs. They are the less fortunate ones, the ones being bred from, neglected, left to roam, not given adequate care, training or socialisation. We are the majority. You don’t see or hear of our wonderful family pets because they are kept safe within our homes and treated with the love and respect every dog deserves. We need to have a serious look at our animal management systems and make sure we are doing everything we can to educate owners, educate children, enforce mandatory desexing and keep our dogs and children safe. I challenge anyone to meet my pitbull and leave still thinking they are a horrible breed.

Ship fires are challenging

MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

Last Monday saw the latest ship fire in port at Lyttelton. I say latest because while these events are uncommon they have occurred here at different times over the years. Ship firefighting is probably one of the most challenging scenarios for firefighters. They involve entry into an unfamiliar environment which involves close confined spaces encased in steel that becomes searingly hot. There’s only limited ability to vent smoke so firefighters often work by touch inside their protective clothing relying on the breathing apparatus on

their back to keep them alive. For the incident commanders there are further considerations that must be factored in. If you pour enough water into a ship eventually the liquid can start to slop. The ship will list, more water will pour to the lower side and as has occurred at several times throughout history, the vessel may well fall over. That’s something you are acutely aware of when you’re sending firefighters into to quell a

fire. It’s why everyone is relieved when the fire is extinguished reasonably quickly without incident as happened on Monday. Four people, including ship’s crew were treated for smoke inhalation. On the subject of smoke inhalation nobody should be surprised that one of the four kitchen fires this week involved somebody having to receive treatment for smoke inhalation. If you can’t immediately extinguish the fire, for goodness sake, get out, close the door, phone 111. Simple you’d think!

Pupils, teachers to thank Auckland school for quake help

FLASH: A proposed design for the new New Brighton Surf Lifesaving club. Below: The new $2.8 million Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club clubhouse on Main Rd.

$3m redesign for clubhouse planned FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The oldest surf lifesaving club in New Zealand could be getting a new $3 million look. The New Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club wants the redesign of its clubhouse to be on par with Sumner’s $2.8 million upgrade. Its Marine Parade clubhouse was damaged by the earthquakes and is now at just over 33 per cent of the current Building Code. It was deemed suitable for immediate use by the club. Sumner’s new clubhouse was completed in November, but was officially opened on Saturday. The New Brighton club proposed its idea to the BurwoodPegasus Community Board last Monday, and was met with positive feedback. At the meeting, community board member Linda Stewart said the idea was “fantastic”, and just what the community

needs. The New Brighton club was established in 1910. This year is the club’s 60th operating out of its clubhouse on Marine Parade. Club president James Gaskell said the club would be better off developing a new building that can serve the club and the community for the “next 50 years and beyond”. The club has been in talks with Riccarton architects Jasmax, who have estimated the cost for a new clubhouse to be between $2.5 and $3 million. Mr Gaskell said the club received about a third of that

money from an insurance settlement for its current clubhouse. The club has also saved about a third of the funds required, but is asking the city council to help them out with the last third. “It is requested that the city council contribute the final third of funds towards this project – an estimated $1 million,” he said. Mr Gaskell said after hearing the final cost of Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club’s new clubrooms, he would expect a similar project to go to New Brighton.

Making a strong comeback After being in and out of a coma for five months, Angelah Rose, 25, believes in living life to the fullest. She spoke to Georgia O’ConnorHarding about fighting back from health problems, her successful jewellery business and burlesque dancing. You have led an interesting life. We’ll start with the burlesque dancing. I got into dancing about three years ago. I started off doing burlesquercise with burlesque dancers Bonita Dangerdoll and Ruby Ruin. I basically fell in love straight away and asked them to be my mentors. I have been learning from them for the last few years until I got sick last year. What happened? I came down with hyponatremia which is when you have a sodium deficiency. Basically I didn’t get enough sodium in my body and so it depleted all my vitamins and minerals. I was in hospital for five and a half months. I couldn’t walk for about three months of that. I was bed-ridden for the whole of the duration. In and out of a coma. It was really scary because it took the hospital three months to figure out what was wrong with me. I lost 20kg. It was pretty horrific. But since then I have gotten back on my feet – my health is a lot better. But I’ve come out with a chronic pain disorder. Tell me about your chronic pain disorder? So I have recovered fully from the hyponatremia. However, it did trigger the underlying pain disorder. I have pains in my hands and my feet. It is affected by hot and cold weather. It is basically an artery disorder. The blood tries to flow but the arteries close and that is what causes pain. It’s the extreme temperatures that trigger it. And when you were in a coma were you aware of your surroundings? I knew what was going on and

it felt like a fight between life and death. This will sound really weird but it felt like the afterlife – I don’t know about that but it felt like I was waiting for a decision to be made. It didn’t feel like I was in control. The last time I woke up my friend came in and half her hair was black and half was red, like the Harlequin character. My friend wears bright colours and I feel like that was the reason I woke up. I was stimulated by seeing the bright hair colour. Do you have last memories before you went in a coma? No, it was just being over it, being in pain. Hating it and waiting for doctors to fix me. And being upset that no one was doing anything to figure out what was wrong with me. It didn’t feel like they were trying hard enough or I was being listened to. My whole body was in pain and I was in hot sweats. Could you describe to me what effect it had on your family and friends? To be honest it had a really negative effect on them. I didn’t see a lot of them for a long time because some of them couldn’t cope with what was happening. My mum along with other members in my family had to get counselling. It was traumatic for everybody involved. And it took me a long time to handle that because I felt responsible for making people feel that way. Because the doctors took so long to find out. Some weeks they figured out what was wrong and the next week it would be something else. Did you get into hospital quickly? No. I went into emergency

every two nights straight before they even listened. Once they thought they figured it out they sent me home. I went home for three days and had another collapse and they put me back in hospital. My mum came in and said she wouldn’t leave until they had run every test they could. How are you doing now? I now have my own shop out in New Brighton. I make jewellery, dance and focus on my health. I do pace myself. I started making jewellery about four years ago. I am really wellknown for my body pieces. Tell me about your jewellery business – Angelah Rose Jewellery? My shop is out at 105 Brighton Mall. What I learnt when I got out of hospital was I didn’t want to work for anybody else other than friends or family if I needed to for help. You need to being doing things every day that makes you happy. I’m working for myself and living all my dreams. It did bring me closer to jewellery. I didn’t use to enjoy it as much but now I know what I can do with it. People originally wore

jewellery not only for ornamental reasons – they wore it because metal is conductive. They conduct energy. All precious stones hold energy. It’s how people healed themselves in the old days. It is great to hear you are still dancing. I have just got into burlesque in the last three months and I love it. It is the one thing I cried about most when I was in hospital – not being able to dance. It was so hard. I love dancing and it is my passion. Is burlesque dancing for anyone? Anybody can do it. Male, female any shape and size. Even if you don’t have rhythm – it is so much fun. There are ladies of all walks of life that do it where I attend. It is empowering for women. It teaches you how to be yourself and shine as bright as you can. It lets you not allow any social perception get you. Has it taken you anywhere in terms of travelling? Not yet. To be honest I haven’t taken it as seriously as I could. But that is something I want to get into more in the future. I have the opportunity to get a

burlesquercise licence which I will probably take to another town and teach it. But now I am just learning as much as I can. I would like to take burlesque to Queenstown where I grew up because there is nothing like that at the moment. I have got a lot of modelling jobs from it so far. Wow, what modelling have you done? It is just with photographers throughout New Zealand. So there have been a couple of men’s magazines that I have featured in. The most recent one was the ALTearoa magazine. What is the most important thing you have taken away from being in hospital? It has been terrible but it hasn’t stopped me living a full life. It has given me a new perspective to take each moment. And also health is wealth. Looking after yourself and eating properly. All you need is to get a blood test every now and again to make sure everything is all good. I hadn’t been to the doctor for a year before having hyponatremia but now I will be getting regular check ups.

BIG OPPORTUNITY: Coastal Spirit’s Ryan Nicholson will travel to Northern Ireland in July to play an international football tournament.

Badminton Hall back in action The home of badminton for the eastern suburbs has finally reopened. Badminton Hall has been officially reopened after being closed for the past five years due to earthquake damage. The hall is in the same location as it was preearthquake, at 230 Pages Rd, next to Cowles Stadium. Badminton Canterbury opened the hall during a ceremony on Saturday afternoon. Badminton Canterbury board secretary Caitlin Ross said the biggest road block in the way to reopening Badminton Hall was its floor. “Being in the eastern suburbs, Badminton Hall was affected severely. The floor was the greatest issue. The floor surface at the time being rimu on piles, it was beyond repair,” she said. The floor, as well as the walls,

toilet blocks and foyer have all been upgraded. “It was closed for earthquake damage, and now it’s finally done. The whole operation cost about $900,000 which mostly came from insurance, and the rest was from our capital,” Badminton Canterbury chairman John Morrish (left). Ms Ross said after a long process it is good to see the final product. “The hall building has finally been refurbished to become one of the finest purpose built venues in the country,” she said. Ms Ross said badminton is growing in Canterbury, thanks to the region’s “ever expanding” cultural mix. “It is an extremely popular sport overseas and with Canterbury’s ever expanding cultural mix, the demand for high quality courts has increased,” she said.

Big opportunity for young footballer FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

A young Coastal Spirit footballer is set to hit the international stage when he travels to Northern Ireland for a tournament in July. Ryan Nicholson, 16, has been selected for one of two under 17 New Zealand teams travelling to Northern Ireland for the Super Cup, formerly Milk Cup, in July. Nicholson said he was excited for the chance to impress scouts and continue his footballing career. “Yeah I am pretty excited. It’s a huge opportunity for me – I haven’t even met the team or the coach yet,” he said. Nicholson is the only Canterbury representative in the side, and will travel to Auckland for

a two day training camp before they leave for Europe in July. He plays his football for the Coastal men’s reserve team, and the St Andrew’s College first 11. He applies his trade in the centre of midfield. “I moved to Coastal because there are more opportunities there. I’m enjoying playing here now,” he said. Nicholson has also played for Federation and National Talent Centre squads. But this is his first time playing as a New Zealand representative. In preparation for the Super Cup, Nicholson’s side will stop off in Barcelona and London, including training at the grounds of professional clubs Espanyol and Chelsea. Nicholson received the call-

up to the squad after a strong performance in the Auckland youth under 17 tournament in March. He said the opportunity to now play in Europe is a “dream come true” for him. From here he is aiming for the top. “My goal would be to play internationally and get a football scholarship,” he said. Nicholson said his great uncle has played football for Ireland, and so he “jumped” at the opportunity to play in Northern Ireland. “I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead and will gain experience from the international games. The coaching will further develop my game,” he said.

EQC UPDATE

KEEPING YOU INFORMED | APRIL 2016

Investigating a safe and cost-effective hybrid shear wall solution for future builds Testing the strength of timber and steel walls on the world’s biggest, full scale shake table will be undertaken for the first time thanks to a grant from the Earthquake Commission (EQC). Damage from one of the February 2016 earthquakes.

First deadlines for February 2016 earthquakes approaching “Already 10% of the contents claims we have received from the February 2016 quakes have been settled and we anticipate that almost all claims will be settled by the end of September this year,” said Ms Lapin. “The settlement of these claims will definitely not slow the progress of claim settlements for the 2010 and 2011 earthquake events.”

DIFFERENT APPROACH EQC’s February 2016 Event Response Manager, Jayne Lapin.

The deadlines to lodge damage claims for the February 2016 earthquakes in Christchurch are fast approaching, says EQC February 2016 Event Response Manager, Jayne Lapin. If your home, land or contents suffered damage in the 14 February earthquake, your claim must be lodged by:

16 MAY 2016

EQC is speeding up claims processing for this event, using a different approach, built on lessons learned from previous natural disaster events in New Zealand. Most customers will be phoned to verify information through desktop assessment in order to cash settle their claim. Assessors will not necessarily visit people’s homes, if claims can be verified and assessed by phone from information and evidence provided by customers. Claim spot checks, auditing and other methods are being used to help safeguard against fraud.

The deadline for lodging a claim for home, contents or land damage suffered in the 29 February earthquake is:

EQC will not manage repairs for the February 2016 earthquake event, unless there is a good reason to, i.e. if a claim is complex, there is extensive damage or a customer’s circumstances require it.

“EQC cannot help someone under the EQC Act, if they miss the relevant deadline for lodging their claim, so we strongly encourage Christchurch homeowners who suffered damage to homes from the 14th or 29th February quakes to lodge a claim – no matter how minor,” Ms Lapin says.

People can lodge claims with EQC:

30 MAY 2016

EQC has started settling claims for Christchurch residents who suffered damage in the February 2016 earthquakes. The first priority was vulnerable customers whose homes were earthquake damaged. Now work has started to progressively contact other customers.

• online at www.eqc.govt.nz/claims • by emailing info@eqc.govt.nz • or phoning 0800 DAMAGE (326 243)

CONTENTS DAMAGE CLAIMS Customers will need to complete a Schedule of Contents form, listing all damaged items. This should include the make, model and serial number of any damaged appliances. Forms can be found at www.eqc.govt.nz/ claims/make-claim/contents-claim or by calling: 0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243).

Remember to: • Take photographs of all of your damaged items (if possible), and clearly state whether it is earthquake damage. The more information you can provide EQC, the better. • Include valuations, quotations and receipts for items of significant value (greater than $500). Your retailer will usually have records for new items you have purchased. • Ensure you include your EQC claim number on the Schedule of Contents form, and all other supporting documents (e.g. photos, valuations) you send to EQC. • You should have received your claim number by email or phone, depending on which EQC channel you used to lodge your claim, e.g. email, phone, visiting website. • Keep all damaged items, unless they are perishable or dangerous – especially those of significant value (greater than $500) – in case EQC needs to inspect them. • EQC may need to inspect the items you have kept, or photographic evidence of items destroyed, to approve your claim. • EQC covers the cost of removal or disposal of damaged contents. To claim disposal costs, please send your receipts to EQC, noting your claim number on the receipt.

The Canterbury rebuild is a proving ground for new, earthquake resilient construction designs such as lightweight, low-rise buildings that need bracing or shear walls.

But do we need newer, imported materials or can we do just as good a job by improvising with cost effective materials that are already available? That’s what Canterbury University’s Dr Minghao Li is exploring with a $67,000 grant from EQC’s Biennial Grants Programme. The research will involve a collaborative test project on a full-scale, five-storey timber-steel hybrid structure using the world’s largest shake table in China. “This shake table facility is powerful enough to test the actual performance of the proposed hybrid structure under strong earthquake ground motions, such as the ones from the Canterbury Earthquakes,” Dr Li says. “The research will investigate how the timber and steel elements in the hybrid system would be integrated to give the optimal seismic performance. It will consider what fasteners and sheathing materials would be suitable for New Zealand’s construction market and what could be the most cost effective overall solution. “We’ll have a better idea of the research findings in 2017 and this will feed into ongoing earthquake strengthening design and builds in New Zealand,” Dr Li says. His research is one of 15 projects which have received $1 million in funding from EQC’s 2016 Biennial Grants Programme. The Programme is part of $16 million granted by EQC each year to high quality research that builds knowledge about New Zealand’s natural disasters.

Customers can send their completed Schedule of Contents form and all additional information to: The National Claims Team Earthquake Commission PO Box 311, Wellington 6140 A short video which explains the process can be viewed at www.eqc.govt.nz/canterbury

Support agencies available for customers The Earthquake Commission continues to work with customer advisory agencies to progress the settlement of customer claims, and answer customer queries.

Advertorial

Letting go of old ways how mind techniques made the difference for one woman When Alison Lyons Kenny enrolled in one of Click Weight Success’ 5-week programme last year, she didn’t realise just how much of a change it would make in her life.

H

er initial aim was to figure out how she could lose weight and through their techniques she quickly understood that her eating was connected with how she felt. Turning to food was often an emotional reaction, but now, she says that food is no longer a crutch. She credits the tools she learned from Click Weight Success with her transformation. When she reaches for food, she asks herself, “Do I really want it? Do I need it? Will it satisfy me?” Those simple questions have made a huge difference. “I tell myself, ‘Well, actually, it won’t,’ so I go onto something else.” Her confidence shines through. She now wears shorts and dresses and she can accept a compliment. “I would be able to tell people ‘that looks lovely on you,’ but I was very critical of myself. Now I accept things more.” She has noticed the difference in how she feels when she wakes up most mornings, in

her attitude to food, which she is actually enjoying as, unlike being on a diet, she eats what and when she wants, and in her attitude to life. “I am letting go of stuff. I held onto so much when I was heavy that I just ate. Now I focus more on what’s in my life and where I want my life to go. I’m finally happy with me.” This summer Alison enjoyed getting in the pool and playing with her children instead of feeling self-conscious. She is pleased she lost weight over Christmas but doesn’t care what the scales say. “I know I’m still losing weight because of my clothes”. Her message for others trying to lose weight? “Do the Click course. I wish I could have in my 20’s because of the mindset it gives you” If you want to feel as good as Alison, Click Weight Success’s next five-week programme begins on Thursday 5th May, one-day workshop Saturday 7th May and individual appointments as arranged.

Ensuring a safe work place

L

earning 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.

estled on an 819-square-metre section in the heart of an eminently popular pocket of the city, our feature property really is the ultimate family home!

Introducing...

Pages Road Back in March 2015 Families for Life Trust purchased a preschool on Pages Road called Gabriel House. Soon to be renamed as Just Kids Pages, this centre has been a part of the Wainoni community since the 1990’s. The unique setting, physical environment and philosophy sets it apart from the Trusts other early childhood centre, Just Kids Community Preschool. It was these differences that our management team found exciting. We could offer more than just one style of ECE service. Just Kids Pages is a small centre, with a mixed-age license. This means that babies, infants and children aged 2 to 5 years are all together in the same setting. This is a huge benefit for families that want their children with each other during the day while they are at work. We ensure that the needs of infants are taking care of in this mixed age setting by having higher than usual staffing ratios and a staff member in the team who focuses on the infants care routines and play activities. The centre has a very homely feel, with daily routines that encourage tuakana-teina, all children working together, learning from and guiding each other just as siblings would in a family setting. Spaces have now become available so come and see us today & join our preschool whanau!
