Can you spare a minute to help Frieda Looser? 20/02/2022

The high rates of vaccination in Aotearoa are keeping our citizens out of ICU. Once the pandemic eases, all restrictions will be lifted. But now is not the time for illegal, disruptive protest by a tiny, noisy minority. The usually silent majority needs to make a stand before the Police are obliged to use force in Wellington and Christchurch. Tell the protestors to go home now!

Can you spare a minute to help Frieda Looser? 43,489 signatures are still needed! Tell the Wellington Protestors to Go Home - They are NOT the majority


Term 1 2022 starts on Monday 31 January - details of courses are in events, or send a message to request a brochure.


The welcome mat 2021-22. I hope you are all on the right side of History: 😍double vaxxed and ready to protect our community 🥳


Time to make History! 1348, 1665, 1918, 2020 - all dates associated with pandemics and plague. The difference this time is that we have a vaccine and everyone needs to be part of the solution. Any Covid deaths from now on are preventable, and History will record the guilt of the unvaccinated. Kia kaha Canterbury!
