Thurston Place College, ctd

Labour and the Stop Thurston Place College protestors would?have?you believe that locals haven’t been consulted about the building of a new school.

What they don’t tell you is that the school isn’t being “built” is already exists. In fact what they also won’t tell you is that the proposal is actually an improvement on the situation that existed when it was Waimokoia School that contained residential facilities for youth meaning it was populated 24/7.

The new proposals mean the school operates only on normal school operating times. A far greater improvement on the past. But Labour and the protestors don’t want you to know that, because they don’t care about at-risk kids, they only care about the property values of mid to top end residents. They believe that these kids can be adequately catered for anywhere but here. It is despicable and nasty nimbyism of the worst kind.

Just so you can get a better understanding, here is a shot from Google Maps?satellite?view showing the school and all its buildings. Make no mistake, a school already exists, the land already is designated as a school, and is Ministry of Education land. No matter what the protestors or Labour will tell you, there is going to be a school of some sort on that land.

What the protestors and Labour want though is a school of better behaved and more affluent children it seems. Their behaviour is appalling.
