Call for calm after school incident

Mangere MP Su’a William Sio is calling for calm and patience following this morning’s alleged stabbing at Pacific Christian School in South Auckland.

“Our first thoughts are with the victim and with the children and their parents.

“The school will need support and it is hoped that the Ministry of Education’s traumatic incident team is providing help for the students, their families and the teachers.

“It is unfortunate that teachers have to deal with these sorts of incidents. It is of even more concern that the children involved in this instance are primary school pupils.

“However, I would just ask that people hold off from speculation.

“Right now the school is making its students its priority,” Su’a William Sio said.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
