Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

South End School newsletter December 2014 - The Fix-it Men:

The fix is in.  This is Mario Geremia, as featured in the Wairarapa Times-Age in this little feel good article - written by none other than the secretary of the South End school - Elaine Scully, who called a young Maori student a "lying little bitch" recently - and was forced to apologise for it.

Repeated requests for the editor and journalists to publish details regarding ongoing and serious problems at the South End school involving at least three of the groundsmen as well as staff, the Board of Trustees and the Statutory Manager (who was appointed after we began making this information public and revealing the extent of it) have been refused - while the so called 'news' paper prints this blatant propaganda instead!

Elaine Scully is one of the people directly responsible for spreading the slanderous and defamatory rumours about me which resulted in me receiving a letter from the Board of Trustees falsely alleging that I had "recently been charged by Police with an offence involving a child" in 2009, and following the receipt of further evidence showing that other staff were being bullied out of their jobs in this manner and replaced with corrupt, violent bullies of questionable character and all sorts of dodgy friends and acquaintances, I contacted the journalists and editor of the local paper with evidence of this and evidence of the manner in which we were being fobbed off, and despite the EVIDENCE, the editor and so called journalists have refused to publish anything about it except this utter propaganda!

I have never been charged with an offence involving a child in my life - as I told the Deputy Principal, the Principal, and the Board of Trustees PRIOR TO EVEN RECEIVING THE LETTER!

After the intervention of Kelvyn Alp and the Office of the Ombudsmen I finally received an utterly pathetic excuse for an apology signed by none other than the person who is continuing to lie and spread untrue and defamatory rumours throughout the community about me, while providing this rubbish to the lazy journalists at the local 'news'paper on behalf of the School to trumpet the praises of her 'friend' - who is mates with a man recently accused by the Police of raping boys as young as six!

It's interesting indeed - not to mention deeply ironic - that Elaine Scully's friend Mario Geremia, who replaced me and the other staff member who was unlawfully sacked in 2009, seems to be best mates with a man who Police actually HAVE charged - with raping little boys! These offences were apparently committed while Ball was working as a school bus driver - there is a pattern of sleazy bullies rising through the ranks in school administration and local government, (Ewen Macdonald's brother was a local detective and was no doubt well aware that getting 'elected' to the local school Board of Trustees would be likely to enhance Macdonald's credibility when he appeared in Court on serious charges including murder), and paedophiles are aided and abetted by corrupt local Police officers who are complicit in the offending and actively covering up for the paedophiles while blaming and discrediting the victims.

More on the role of the media later.  This is the NEW media - Transparency in New Zealand is part of the FOCKCer initiative, uniting caring Kiwi communities and putting the unity back into our commUnities.

Who is Mario Geremia, and why were two staff members at the South End School in Carterton sacked and replaced by a seedy photographer who has a strong association with accused child molester Godfrey Ball.  It seems that Mr Geremia is developing a nice little line in photographing local children, as the Carterton School newsletter of 4 November 2014 shows.
"Video of the Kapahaka Festival - The day was filmed by Mario Geremia and he will be selling copies of the DVD. He will be selling the DVDs individually for $25.00 and your school will be on one or the other (the powhiri will be on both), or you can purchase the whole day for $35.00.  Please contact Mario directly on mardi53@hotmail.com - or call him on (06) 378 8349."
And who is Godfrey Ball, alias Geoffrey Ball?

Well, he is a local man who actually WAS recently charged by Police with a number of violent sexual offences against boys as young as six years old.

Ball is believed to have committed suicide on 7th August 2014, around two months after he was formally charged by Police and his name was published after a Judge declined name suppression in order to facilitate other victims coming forward - which they did, in droves.

The Public Notices in the local 'news'paper confirms the friendship between Mario Geremia and Godfrey Ball alias Geoffrey Ball.  David Dew will be the subject of another post - he is also as dodgy as anything, a local funeral director who is in partnership with the wife of Constable Harvey Pope apparently (information to the contrary will be gladly received and published - if it exists).

The fact that Mario Geremia is a photographer who likes to photograph little children is a matter of great concern to many people in the community, but it's apparently not of concern to the Ministry of Education, despite the fact that they have appointed a Statutory Manager in 2010 after findings revealed that the Board of Trustees was grossly dysfunctional and incompetent.

The Statutory Manager is likewise incompetent and unconcerned about any of it, but he is also cunning and corrupt as the links in the next paragraph, and the copy of his emailed instructions to ignore my communications clearly show. 
This strategy of facilitating men of questionable character into jobs where they can readily access vulnerable victims is consistent with a pattern of concealing and covering up child abuse in the Wairarapa, involving corrupt local Police, Members of Parliament, District Councillors, and other so called 'community leaders'.  It would appear that the Statutory Manager, Ken Wilson, is being well 'incentivised' to ignore our concerns and further slander and victimise myself and the other victim of this outrageous bullying and corruption.  It seems that the longer Ken Wilson can cover up problems the more he is paid.  In a situation that bears remarkable similarities to this one, it is reported that:
"The bill for a government-appointed manager at a Levin high school is likely to top $12,000, pulled from the school's board of trustees coffers and away from student resources.

The Ministry of Education instigated a statutory intervention at Horowhenua College in June after issues between the board and principal, Brenda Burns, came to light.

Nearly six months later Wellington-based education contractor Ken Wilson is still on the grounds, working through things with staff and likely to remain there until mid-March next year, according to the board chairman.

The board called for help at the college when financial reports went askew after a computer system failed, causing six months' of data to disappear, and problems with governance and management escalated.

Concerns circled around lack of clarity between the board's roles and the principal's roles, blurring of responsibilities and communication breakdowns, causing tension."
The following email was sent to Mr Wilson on 1 March 2011:

To: ken.wilson@webresearch.co.nz, secretary@southend.school.nz

Hi Ken,

I understand that you are the Statutory Manager appointed to the South End School, and have been asked to write to you regarding issues around the management and administration of the school.

I was recently handed correspondence between the school and Wayne Rogers, regarding the termination of his employment at the school, which seems to mirror the way I was treated (attached).  I've also been contacted by a number of people who have also complained about the school, including the family of a young girl who was called a "lying little bitch" - as in "You're nothing but a lying little bitch" by Mrs Scully, who is also responsible for this confidential correspondence ending up in my hands and the hands of a number of other people.  Many people said that Mrs Scully, Mr O'Leary, Ms Powell and other staff and members of the Board of Trustees have been spreading rumours throughout the community that I am a child abuser, and that Wayne Rogers is also a paedophile.

I received a letter from the Board of Trustees which is attached.  Also attached is a note of thanks I received at the end of the year (2008).  The last paragraph of the letter to me, and the thank you note, make a mockery of the school's current position on the matter, and of the Court proceedings brought against me by Rod O'Leary and the former groundsman Thomas Smith.

I've also received copies of correspondence between the school and the Armstrong family about me, which frankly disgust me because they contain nasty and untrue accusations.  Furthermore, Board of Trustees member Emily Brown came to the Armstrong's home and made a number of derogatory statements about me and about how Emily had contacted Police and mental health authorities about me after I politely requested that she arrange a meeting between and the Board about this correspondence I had received containing the untrue allegation that I was a danger to the children.  Emily Brown is an adulterous liar, who has acknowledged (and boasted about) the fact that she was having it off with George Smith while still married to and living with her husband Graham.  Emily's mother and brother committed suicide, and it disgusts many people in the community that she is going around to homes like the Armstrongs, spreading her nasty spiteful UNTRUE rumours, and causing hatred and division in the community.  She claimed to be representing the Board on this visit, which disgusted us even more.  She should resign from the Board immediately, her adultery and lies disgusts decent people in the community. 

I request the immediate return of everything I brought to the school, including the large sign, tools, hoses, plants, etc.

I request that the school write immediately to Wayne Rogers and apologise to him for distributing his correspondence and breaching his privacy.  He deserves the job as groundsman for all his voluntary work for the school!  The way the Board treats volunteers is disgraceful!

I request that you inform me immediately:
(1) specifically what information (referred to in the correspondence) the school received about me that led them to believe I was (or "could have been") a danger to the children, and
(2) from whom specifically the Board (or O'Leary) received this information.

The correspondence to the Armstrongs is outrageous, the two letters to them clearly contain allegations that I am a danger to the kids, O'Leary knows perfectly well that I never told him any such thing, and that there was no meeting until AFTER I received the letter sacking me, ex Deputy Principal Dallas Powell knows this too. They know perfectly well that the local corrupt police officer told him the lies about me being charged, not me, as he is not dishonestly inferring!  The visit to the Armstrong's by Emily Brown was equally outrageous and she should resign immediately because of that alone - how dare she go around the community breaching my privacy and spreading lies like this!!!?  How unprofessional!  I requested a meeting with the Board!

I request an immediate meeting with the Board to discuss the letter which I received from Gavin Kennedy.  The last paragraph promises me my job back if I am "acquitted of the charges withdrawn" - there never were any charges as everyone knows, and I want my job back without further delay.
I understand you were appointed on 1 October 2010 specifically to manage employment and financial problems.  How is it then that Wayne Rogers was hired and fired by Rod O'Leary and the Board around 11 November 2010 - was this done with your approval, or behind your back?
I look forward to your urgent response.

Katherine Raue

This is the outrageous response I received:


Hi Ken

We have had the attached email in from Kate.

I spoke with Emily yesterday to try and ascertain how she got the attached letters.  Emily is sure she has stolen them from her letterbox.  Unfortunately for us, Emily has admitted that she often doesn’t clear her letterbox (which is on the main street) for days at a time.

I have not responsible for this info getting into Kate’s hands as she states.  I phone Emily or leave a message on her answerphone every time I drop mail into her letterbox.  The only other way I give her board info is to hand it to her son Zac and ask him to take it home (this is usually non important info).

We have phoned the Police and asked them to come down to track this for us.

Any advice?  Do you want me to inform all the board members about what is happening?  Ray was in the office this morning so I have informed him.



Elaine Scully gave the highly confidential information to the wrong "Zac".  Instead of admitting her mistake, she tries to use to further slander me in yet another deliberately false complaint to the Police - making an absolutely outrageous allegation that I "stole" the information from Emily Brown's letterbox!  Emily Brown, like Elaine Scully, is not fit to work at a school, both of them are malicious liars, Emily Browns mother and brother both committed suicide from the information I've received and from my experience of Emily Brown it's not hard to see why that might be, she is a malicious liar and her actions regarding this matter - like those of Elaine Scully - have been outrageous!

On the 9th August 2012 I sent this email to Hiria Parata - nepotism is alive and well at parliament, despite all the tax payer funded flowery propaganda published by the State Services Commission MP's flagrantly hire the most incompetent and corrupt individuals imaginable. as the featured article at that link shows.   Parliamentary Services has a stable of these at the ready and are always keen to add more members to the firm.  Complaints are treated with contempt.  So called 'good news' is generated by well paid journalists who then

Hiria Parata is related to Hekia Parata and employed at parliament to pervert the course of justice.  Initial correspondence regarding this matter resulted in an email from Hiria Parata telling me to seek resolution through the Board of Trustees - who have consistently refused to engage in discussion or dialogue regarding this matter.
Tena koe Hiria Parata,

I am forwarding the response I received when I requested the contact details for the Statutory Manager at the South End School so that I could communicate with him in order to resolve the outrageous and ongoing matters regarding the letter I received from the Board sacking me over a false allegation and the subsequent exacerbation of the problems when another staff member was also unjustifiably dismissed and his privacy breached in a similar - and and equally slanderous- manner.

I was phoned about an hour ago by Diane Drake.  She refused to give me an email address for the Statutory Manager and said she'd resolve it by a phone call to police.  I said I'd like to see the evidence in writing and I'd like to put my statements to the school, police etc, in writing and have them responded to in writing.

Please provide me with contact details (email address and phone number) for the Statutory Manager without delay, and arrange for an urgent meeting with the Board, preferably recorded by audio or video to avoid any more false allegations.  This matter should have been resolved a long time ago, the Board must honour the letter and reinstate me forthwith, and stop the dishonesty about the property, it was never 'returned', witnesses confirm this.

I am forwarding copies of this email to other parties including the media because it is in the public interest to do so, the Ministry has continues to fail to deal with it and the latest threats from Ray Craig and assault by Emily Brown's partner is the last straw - is Brown still on the Board?  I request an immediate apology for the slanderous allegation contained in this email!  There never were any "charges involving a child' or any evidence of any "incident" apart from a well documented violent attack on me in my home by a criminal who has been found guilty of fraud and lying as well as violent offences against children, the evidence directly contradicts the false allegations, and the Board must honour this letter and reinstate me without delay and sort out this disgraceful situation!

Katherine Raue
Eventually I received a bit more nonsense from the Minister and her Ministry staff, who clearly had an agenda along the lines of delay, deny and defer, and continue to pervert the course of justice and aid and abet lying bullies as long as possible while enabling the guilty parties to retain their snouts in the trough and their access to vulnerable and innocent victims.

Despite the Personnel and Employment Policy stating that "an elected or co-opted member of the Board of Trustees will be given the position of Personnel Officer and will oversee and monitor the Board's responsibilities associated with this policy" it is clear by a screenshot of the school's appallingly inadequate website as at 19 December 2014 showing that this has never been the case.

There seem to be only the two Policies, and these were only introduced during the tenure of the aforementioned Statutory Manager, and are clearly not worth the paper they're written on.

After the involvement of Kelvyn Alp who wrote to the Ombudsmen pointing out that the previous documented correspondence from the Board and the Ministry (the Privacy Commissioner etc, and all involved except me basically) is nothing more than an orchestrated litany of lies and a despicable and blatant attempt to pervert the course of justice,the Ombudsmen reopened the investigation and eventually I received the following information:

This is outrageous - the Minster of Education, Anne Tolley, clearly stated in 2010 that "the Board of Trustees of the South End school in Carterton was your legal employer." - and as for the claims of Elaine Scully in the email above - these are blatant lies!

I certainly WAS employed - to teach the children the Let's Get Growing NZ community gardening program, every Friday afternoon and Elaine Scully knows that perfectly well, like Wayne Rogers, the other staff member unfairly maligned and unlawfully sacked, we were both employed, and promised that we would be paid "as soon as the Board gets the funding"!

No information has ever been provided regarding the source of the allegations made in the original letter and neither has any answer been given to most of the other substantive matters raised regarding the sacking of me and the former groundsman Mr R, or the relationship between the new groundsman and the person charged with raping so many children.  The fact that the school has refused to provide the information to date is certainly a matter the Minister should be dealing with effectively!

Here's how it works - corrupt and incompetent local Police hold little witch hunting sessions and lie to the community in order to facilitate the rise to power of people like Logan Bathurst and Georgina Beyer - known locally as Beyer the Liar.  Then they boast in the local paper in a twisted attempt to rationalise and excuse it:

More on how it works at this link, including letters from senior lawyers upholding my complaints and making further complaints of serious malfeasance, assault, corruption and perverting the course of justice.  While the Privacy Commissioner lied and falsely claimed that I told the school I'd been charged with an offence involving a child, the information provided recently shows that I was right all along - and NOT delusional in the slightest - whoever believed I'd been charged by Police with an offence involving a child was either delusional or corrupt and as the tax payer pays their wages we'd better find out which!

It has been claimed by senior lawyers that the actions of the NZ Police regarding these matters are corrupt and politically motivated, and the evidence of that is indisputable.

This site will be updated with further EVIDENCE of this blatant politically motivated corruption REGULARLY.  In the meantime there is further information at this link and several others on this site.

Comments on these matters are welcome - confidential information can be emailed to kateraue@gmail.com

Our children deserve better than this!  No wonder the Wairarapa has such problems with violence, murder, child abuse and suicide - regularly having over twice the national average - it's run by drunken bullies, unemployable transvestite prostitutes who've never had a job in their lives and experts in nothing but bribery and blackmail!

The media see fit to report on all sorts of recent community gardening and gardening in schools initiatives, feed the kids initiatives, etc, all around the country, but they've seen fit to refuse to report on THIS matter apart from a couple of slanderous articles about me - we STARTED the trend when we took over the Carterton Community Garden and developed the program and established it in the local schools in 2000 after Beyer the Liar and 'her' mates tried to close it down because they were too lazy and disorganised to run it!

The Key to it is having a compliant (or compromised, or both) Prime Minister, and a sycophantic media (scroll down at that link for the related reports) - as Jimmy Saville could tell you.  It's all about 'Public Image' - the PERCEPTION of corruption, the PERCEPTION of REALITY - that's what the media do, they mediate between the gullible public and reality, and they're paid off to twist that reality, and portray a couple of idiots like Beyer and Gary McPhee as heroes and role models.

The media are bought and paid for like this - this is a true copy of the Minutes of a meeting of the Carterton District Council, showing firstly, that Noise Control officers are required by law to be warranted and secondly the ease with which Mediaworks Radio extorted money out of the Council "over and above existing commitments to receive over $100,000 worth of airtime to inform the public on a regular basis about all the positive things that happen in the Wairarapa region." 

- So let's try and define "positive"! -  Well for a start, when the drunken lout and his drunken mate (who is also on the Council payroll with all their other mates regardless of ability qualification or suitability) smash their way into a local home and assault the occupants in a vicious alcohol fueled home invasion, the local paper makes him out to be a hero thus - complete with the most inappropriate photo they can find to print:

When I stood for Council and the Mayoralty against Gary McPhee the local paper printed this poster and put it outside all retail outlets about two weeks before the election:
 The paper refused to print anything when I was acquitted after the complainant refused to testify against me and Police failed to even turn up to the Court!

And I'm not the only one to notice this either as these letters to the editor show:

This second letter refers to the orchestrated litany of lies the paper printed regarding the outrageous outburst of Georgina Beyer the Liar at a public meeting regarding the Carterton Community Centre - the paper lied and tried to make out that I caused the disturbance - despite about 150 witnesses who all told Police Helen Clark and the Courts that the only person who had been disturbing the peace or behaving in a disorderly manner was Beyer the Liar!  I was acquitted of all five charges after Beyer the Liar and the rest of the liars on the Council and in the Masterton Police gave evidence but the liars at the Times-Age refused to report anything about that.

Jimmy Saville is a good example of how psychopaths get away with things for so long, they're aided and abetted by the media and this is crucial to the way they are perceived by the public, in the community.  Local 'journalists' wax lyrical about Beyer the Liar being 'elected' to the Board of Trustees of a local college and all sorts of "positive things".  Enquiries have revealed the truth about Beyer's involvement with the Board of Trustees of Kuranui College - Beyer was not 'elected' at all.  Beyer appears to have been co-opted onto the committee at the insistence of none other than the author of Beyer's "biography" - a work of fiction if ever I read one!  Beyer used to work in my husband's strip club and I know him/her well - just because you take a lot of drugs and turn your diddle inside out it doesn't make you a woman.  Here are some of the Minutes of the Kuranui College Board of Trustees - which were provided in a timely, co-operative and transparent manner by the current administration I might add.  These are from October 1993:

These are the Minutes from the November 1993 meeting:

Georgina Beyer is an unemployed transvestite prostitute who conned 'her' way into parliament by bribery and blackmail and the collusion of corrupt local 'journalists', which is why nobody has given Beyer a job since the day 'she' was unceremoniously booted out of parliament the day after a vote of no confidence in the government after EVIDENCE of Beyer's involvement in a Police investigation into the fraud at the former Carterton Community Centre, the Emperor has no clothes.

There were TWO substantial community petitions calling for the books of the Carterton Community Centre to be audited - by an accountant - not looked over by a transvestite prostitute.

Carterton District Council accountant Lyn Patterson was well rewarded for her part in "complying" the financial records and colluding in the fraud - she is currently Mayor of Masterton, and Adrienne Staples, widely reported to be related to the beneficiary of one of the larger unauthorised and fraudulent 'personal grievances associated with the former Carterton Community Centre, is currently Mayor of South Wairarapa - who says crime doesn't pay?:

The books of the Carterton Community Centre have never been audited for very good reason - the Centre was being run corruptly as a little slush fund for a group of people associated with the Carterton District Council - a major funder of the Carterton Community Centre.  Councillor Jill Greathead asked R G Thompson to audit the account of the Community Centre - which she was involved in ripping off, but when he told her the likely outcome she immediately asked for the return of all the information she'd given him and told him not to worry about it.

Further EVIDENCE is available on request via the comments section, which is moderated, and requests are treated anonymously if requested.  This post will be updated as time and resources allow.
