Hillcrest High School Reunion - Easter 2022

Hillcrest Highschool

Next year Hillcrest High School will be celebrating 50 years (1972 to 2022) with a reunion planned for 14 to 17 April 2022 (Easter weekend). The reunion committee has been working since the beginning of this year to create a programme that will showcase Hillcrest over the last 50 years and provide an opportunity for you to catch up with classmates, teachers and colleagues, many of whom you would have not seen for many years.

Former student Brian Winter is writing a book about the history of the school, which will be on sale online and during the reunion.

THE LIFE OF BRIAN

Paul from Pukete

There is a irony to the latest posturing by self proclaimed prophet and self ordained bishop Brian Tamaki,,( who if I remember correctly spoke in that video broadcasted ascension of the possibility of becoming Prime Minister, (we await the fulfilment of that prophecy) )





Tamaki's rally got under way this morning in Auckland after he met top police bosses Andrew Coster and Wally Haumaha last week.



The three of us had a Zoom meeting and they recognise it is a part of the Bill of Rights for people to protest," Tamaki said at the time.



The three discussed health and safety measures for the rally.



"We are trying to be responsible, and they said it is something they can't stop. We agreed to cooperate and we will make sure we are Covid responsible."Commissioner Coster asked for masks to be a condition, which I agreed to. It is a small compromise."



There is an underlying arrogance in these statements ...we agreed to cooperate....thus faced with the top cop,,,Brian determines whether he will cooperate or not,,,,its a different experience for those trying to cross the covid borders .....masks to be worn as a condition ,,,,,which I agreed to It is a small compromise,,,,,so bloody magnanimous of you Brian.



"However, that must be weighed against the lawfulness and reasonableness of the protest activity. As we have indicated, gathering for a protest run other than in compliance with the law carries with it the risk of Covid transmission and may lead to enforcement action, including against yourself as an organiser," Coster said



The above statement needs a look,,,,, However, that must be weighed against the lawfulness and reasonableness of the protest activity...is it lawful to protest...yes,,but is it reasonable to protest in a way that places the wider populace at risk,,,a gathering where social distance and mask wearing was not adhered to or able to be controlled by the organiser Brian ...was it ever possible for you to contain them ,,,,or command them ....this rabble ...let have a transcript of the sermon ( Matthew 12:37 For by your words you will be acquitted , and by your words you will be condemned )....from the mount of the fallen warriors ,,,,by those who care little for the ultimate sacrifice paid by them ...its intensely hypocritical for that site to be chosen for this protest....lets examine the profoundness of the proclamations.... that you potentially risked a super spreader consequence for....let the nation know Brian ....we await the utterances of the oracle ....he is not a scientist or a politician by his own admittance,,,.is he the true prophet...



It is laughable if it was not so shameful, and placing us all at risk.
