Many of us have diﬃculty with stairs or steps as we become less mobile
in our senior years; this generally leads to the sale of our family home,
where many memorable years have passed. Each time we approach the
stairs, the same thought runs through our mind: Im going to have to move
because I cant climb these stairs much longer!
Forget moving! The better option is to have a stairlift installed. Just think,
no more stair climbing, you can stay in your own home, and best of all, its a
cheaper option! Just sit down, hold the up/down control and have a safe,
smooth ride up and down your stairs.
Acorn have been making stairlifts since 1992, constantly ensuring their
products remain at the forefront of technology and ease of use. Customers
can buy direct from the manufacturer, resulting in lower prices and fast
delivery. Let Acorn provide you with a no-obligation quote, and fx those
stairs for good!
Selling because of your stairs? Think again!

June now has time
to smell the roses
Life lessons: June McMillan is calling time
on her years in education.
Memories come flooding back as June
McMillan looks at all the stories and
pictures strewn across her desk.
Fifty-three years is a long time in
anyone s language, the Chapel Downs
School principal and Remuera resident
On April 5 the school bell rang for
the last time in her career.
I ve got things that I still haven t
completed yet. But time catches up
and it s an opportunity for a new per-
son to come in with vigour and vision.
The school has never had another
principal. When she arrived in 1985
she was confronted by a clutch of old
relocated buildings that were about to
be named Thomas Rd School.
She didn t think the name was fit-
ting so she canvassed the neighbour-
hood in search of inspiration. She
found it in a small chapel nearby.
She also found there was no one to
give her advice on how to set up a
school in the six weeks she was given.
It was an old building and there
was dust everywhere. We didn t even
have power or water until the day
before the school opened.
From the moment she took the job
she wanted to capitalise on the
benefits of all the extra help the school
got because of its location.
I came from a high decile area and
I thought that all children should have
that opportunity and the only way
they can get that is through having the
She spent many years trying to push
teaching forward, working with gifted
children, helping develop the Core
Libraries reading programme and
working at teachers college in Epsom.
She longed to run her own school but
principalships were few and far
between. She was finally handed the
reins of Finlayson Park School in
Manurewa before starting at Chapel
Downs. After a life dedicated to edu-
cation she now wants a little playtime.
I want to have some time to smell
the roses and look up at the blue sky
and know that I m not run by bells. It s
been a wonderful life and I d do it all
