College Board is keen that all our parents and caregivers are allowed to hear
the facts from Te Marae Ora, and not from lobby groups that hijacked our
evening meeting last Tuesday.
Marae Ora team did an important job to enlighten our families with these facts.
The choice to vaccinate in the end belongs to each family and their child.
the spirit of our Patron – Blessed Edmund Rice, guide us. May St Joseph the
Patron of all families keep us together.

along to one of Te Marae Ora’s consultation meetings, to try and make a well-informed
decision, on whether to vaccinate 12 to 15 year olds, or not?
credit to the poor staff, who obviously drew the short straw, and had to
facilitate this. Most of the people speaking there, had already been to several
meetings, and don’t even have children, in this age group! The first person to
speak, said his brother in England had been vaccinated and still got Covid-19!
–like they think the vaccine, is a magic shield or something.
only useful information, from the meeting was, what to look for with side

anything else, but not the ingredients? I found them in two seconds.

fully vaccinated and, no, I don’t know what’s in it – neither this vaccine, the
ones I had as a child, nor in the Big Mac, or in hot dogs, or in other
treatments … whether it’s for cancer, AIDS, the one for polyarthritis, or
vaccines for infants or children.
also don’t know what’s in Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, or other meds, it just cures
my headaches and my pains.
don’t know what’s in the ink for tattoos, vaping, Botox and fillers, or every
ingredient in my soap or shampoo or even deodorants. I don’t know the long-term
effect of mobile phone use or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at
really used clean foods and washed their hands.
short, there’s a lot of things I don’t know and never will…
just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do
something other than just going to work every day or staying locked in my home.
I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of
a child and as an adult I’ve been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella,
chicken pox, and quite a few others; my parents and I trusted the science and
never had to suffer through or transmit any of said diseases.
vaccinated, not to please the government but:
To not die from Covid-19
To not clutter a hospital bed if I get sick
To hug my loved ones
To not have to do tests to go out dancing, go to a restaurant, go on holidays
and many more things to come
