GOVERNMENT PICKING ON DEFENCELESS

by Julian Pistorius
Here is a photo of a few of the people who guarded Orauta school last week. It is courtesy of The Bay Chronicle.

Orauta guards
(click on the image for a bigger version)

I am in the fluorescent yellow jacket in the back. The lady in front is the principal of the school. That is her house in the background. She has lived here for the last 17 years while serving as principal of Orauta. The house is on the community's land. The Teacher Housing division of Opus International has been put in charge of removing her from her house.

The name of the Opus person dealing with the case is Sharron M. Berry, Senior Portfolio Manager, Central Region/National Projects Manager for Teacher Housing. Phone 0800 663 836, fax (07) 838 9761, direct line (07) 834 1873 or email sharron.berry@opus.co.nz

I wonder if she knows of Opus' Conduct and Ethics policy: "Opus' extensive track record is built on a code of employee conduct and sound professional ethics". I wonder if she thinks evicting the school's teachers under orders from this Government is an example of "sound professional ethics"?

Ms Berry passes the buck to Brian Mitchell, Property Implementation Manager at the Ministry of Education on (04) 463 8285 or brian.mitchell@minedu.govt.nz

P.S. Don't you just love the titles they have?
