It is absolutely dreadful to think a police officer was opened fire upon; I can only praise her quick actions/reactions.
And now the hunt goes on for these abhorrent people and what a manhunt it is.
I just wonder when are we going to have the same urgency, the same level of prevention, the same level of monitoring of families who continue to murder the weakest in our society.
They have no means to defend themselves, they are entirely and absolutely defenceles:_
WHEN WILL ANYONE PUT IN PLACE PREVENTIVE MEASURES TO ensure this does not happen again
WHEN WILL the justice system give these murderers a just sentence, and at least a 5 year program of detailed, intensive intervention to ensure no more of our pepe are murdered

Kia ora neighbours,

Hamilton schools are hosting a mini cultural festival to celebrate the diversity of our town.

Elton Snell, teacher in charge of Pasifika Studies at Peachgrove Intermediate School says the Pasifika event is called Keep It Fresh.

He says the main aim of the festival is "to foster unity amongst a diverse Aotearoa."

The festival will bring together different Pacific cultures in order to celebrate who we are in a modern Kiwi society, Snell says.

It will be held at the Gallaghers Performing Arts Centre at the Waikato University on Saturday October 31 from 11am - 4 pm.

Amongst schools taking part will be Peachgrove Intermediate, Fairfield Primary School, St John's College, Hamilton Girls High School and Hillcrest High School.

Joining them will be some Pasifika groups from Waikato University including their Tongan, Samoan and Fijian groups as well as the HAMCIA - Hamilton Cook Island Association Cultural Performing Group.

The event is backed by the University and K'aute Pasifika.
