社区动态 > 战“疫”——新西兰公民与政府互动的实践

作者: 口述:Charm &W 撰稿整理:Rita:    人气: 6014    日期: 2020/4/11






第一部分 新冠肺炎如此近

对于在新西兰的Charm来讲,农历庚子年的除夕,显得惊心动魄—— 中国国内家人除夕夜肺炎急送ICU,家人在医院铤而走险,武汉撤侨的新西兰同学留守武汉医院当义工,家人被迫迁移因住宿楼宇邻居感染登上新闻,亲人肺部检出阴影逃离医院自我隔离度日如年......这一切一切,使她对新冠肺炎有了切肤之痛和更深更直接认识。


接下来的两个月,她一直处在一种alert警觉而近乎疯狂的忙碌中,有一种使命感在推动我,让我在这个防疫漩涡里面整合资源,争分夺秒做了一大堆超乎平常的事情。

 

第二部分 第一阶段——促成“14隔离政策

一月,作为一个新西兰教育工作者,同时也拥有留学生教育交流业务,在经历了来自中国的种种关于新冠疫情的震惊和亲朋好友真实情况确认之后,Charm首先考虑那一时刻新西兰比中国安全,敏锐的预计到新西兰政策有变,赶紧催促还在中国的留学生改飞机票提前回新西兰。同时她开始收集来自中国和新西兰的各种信息,翻译成英语。将收集的信息,写成邮件发给有业务往来的各学校校长,解释疫情的严重,协商短期游学中介放弃短期游学计划并促成校长同意退款,并且沟通建议他们需要针对中国回来的长期留学生和回国旅游的本地学生实行14天的隔离规定。同时在朋友圈发动鼓励在新西兰的华人家长,提供材料给各个学校家长,鼓励华人家长给自己的孩子所在的学校联系一起推动“14天隔离规定。争分夺秒,离开学仅仅只有几天,华人家长都在用自己的方式行动,经过大量的努力,一些开明的校长们开始公布发起“14天隔离的倡议,主流媒体也高调报道,有褒有贬。推波助澜,开学前一天,新西兰教育部终于联合卫生部,向所有学校发出“14天隔离要求,所有家长终于舒了一口气。

想到学生回归,很多寄宿家庭无法接受学生隔离,Charm再次行动,作为新西兰深圳联谊会创会会长,长期做社团工作的积累,她开始联系其他社团和议员们,组成筹备组,商讨寻找合适方式合适地方如何安顿回归学生,联系营地Camp,教会和一些私人农场,多个营地都拒绝了,欣慰的是,同时间学校很多国际部住宿家庭都尽力安排好了隔离计划,虽然一部分寄宿家庭因为清楚病毒的危害而拒绝,但当时洋人寄宿家庭几乎都不会太介意隔离的危险性。当洋人媒体跟踪采访charm,故意问及是否很多留学生被拒在寄宿家庭隔离,为了不产生不必要的社会矛盾,charm告诉他们,学校都妥善安排好了。而当发现在新西兰读书的部分学生住宿有困难时,她腾出自己的民宿房子供给他们作隔离用房。

因为这个防疫的奔波,Charm也被参与由一群基督徒自发的互助组织,他们互不相识,来自不同教会,但是是在这个疫情最先行出来,帮助回新西兰的中国同胞寻找隔离地点,有关隔离经验,团队起草很多有建设性意见提供给卫生部。在他们的感染下,Charm非常兴奋,找到同样价值观的一群人,看着每天有不同的同胞面临困景,被原房东拒绝,甚至逼迫睡在车里,请求是否有人只是提供洗澡地方,大家心急如焚,都用自己不同方式帮助寻找房源。Charm参与了帮助隔离时期的慰问关心,送饭代购物,华社一群人默默的奉献着,Charm也协助联系了华人和洋人媒体,做好链接宣传工作,报道正能量,把隔离人群和滞留中国的留学生的心声得到及时的报道。

 

第三部分 第二阶段——照顾身边人

病毒终于还是来了!而且就在我们身边!

228日,一位近期从伊朗回新西兰的人确诊新冠肺炎,成为新西兰的一号病例。34日,一位从意大利回来的人确诊,列为第二号病例,其子女分别在Westlake 男子中学和Westlake 女子中学。35日,三号病例,一位奥克兰本地人确诊,而该病患子女分别在奥克兰文法学校和Ormiston 初中。此案例本人近期并无海外旅行史,然其家人近期从伊朗返回新西兰。

此时,不仅华人家长,其它族裔的很多家长也陷入一片恐慌之中。大家都希望学校采取更严厉的措施,包括允许学生和老师戴口罩,甚至关闭学校,来避免自己的孩子受伤害。

Ormiston 中学就在Charm工作的幼教机构附近,两个教育机构有很多共同的家长,Charm很清楚在35号下午一点公布与Ormiston初中有关的确诊病例两个小时后,就会有很多家长接了中学的孩子,然后涌到幼儿园来接孩子!他们毫无防护,既不能保护自己,也不能保护幼儿园的孩子和工作人员!心急如焚的Charm赶紧通知幼儿园负责人,告诉她Ormiston中学出事了,我们必须采取措施!“ 然而她的行动得到否定批评,定性是违反纪律,得到的是所有的不理解,学校无人支持她,都认为她是反应过度。

可喜的是最后Charm和幼儿园的总负责人沟通,一位基督教牧师,基督慈善教育机构拥有七所教会幼儿园分布在不同城市。Charm向牧师陈述中国的疫情发生以来,自己都做了什么,帮了什么人。她说:第一,我把自己的房子都腾出来给来自中国的学生做隔离用,所以我并不是害怕自己有危险。第二,武汉有很多人传染,并且很多人死去,这是真实的事!所以我们必须要做防范,避免我们的孩子们出问题。第三,我们有很多家长,他们信任我,他们有资格知道他们的孩子面临的无症状感染的风险,而我们作为基督学校更应该帮助社区和家长。

牧师Tony Bracefield被深深震撼打动,说:“I can feel your pain. I can feel your passion. I can feel your love! You should serve the community.” 总经理奖励了她一周的带薪假期,来帮助社区。 

 

第四部分 第三阶段——众志成城,与政府积极互动

公布了上述三个病例的时候,新西兰政府仍然对这次的新冠肺炎认识不足,奥克兰地区公共健康服务部(ARPHS)在发给涉案的两所学校的通知里,还在强调来自确诊病例的家庭的学生没有症状,不可能传染给其它学生等等。

而当天,华人微信圈里又一次炸开了锅,几乎每一条与新西兰新冠肺炎有关的消息,都在批评、嘲讽政府不作为,都在传递绝望和恐慌的情绪。

 

 

Charm心急如焚,如热窝上的蚂蚁,面对自己工作学校陷入可能感染的危机,而且一部分朋友家长哭诉,担心孩子已经感染因为是确诊家庭孩子的同学,都在担心害怕,需要祷告和帮助。Charm和一所教会学校的校董商量,提议她向新西兰国家教育部写公开信,要求政府重视并采取有力的措施避免疫情恶化。

Charm知道这一刻责无旁贷,有一个声音深切呼唤着她,这一刻该是挺身而出的时刻。以在互助群帮助隔离阶段经验,Charm决定把熟悉人才尽快拉起一个智囊团去完成这个任务,首先她请求教会的同声翻译帮忙,一个渊博有才深懂中西文化的编程专家W, 还有擅长调研的Yali, 以及家长代表聚集在一起组起了一个核心工作团队,负责技术性的调研、撰写公开信等工作;家长积极代表Anna负责启动三个家长微信群,由超过千位来自近百家学校的家长代表组成。

大家知道,抱怨没有任何价值,也不可能去指导政府做什么。向政府写公开信,正面沟通,以促成一些变化,是当下最可行的方案。然而,这不是一个简单的工作!要写出一份正式的公开信,需要让有理有据的分析,有具体可实施的方案建议。而有理有据,就需要对已经发生的情况、COVID-19病毒的传播特点、危害等做出科学的、正式的、书面的总结,并提出行之有效的措施建议。

W勇敢地承担起这个总任务。他彻夜未眠研究了ARPHS写给学校的信件里,明显的不符合实际的部分,对比WHO的相关规程,准备有针对性地指出政府对新冠肺炎的认知的不足,和措施的不当。

就在准备信件的过程中,37日,新西兰第四和第五个病例确诊,第四例即为34日公布的第二例,从意大利回新西兰的女士的丈夫;第五例则为第三例的家人。

这些案例都证明,目前的居家隔离方案有巨大的漏洞,如果不加以改善,新西兰将迎来确诊病例数量的暴涨。

当晚大家一起祷告,如何给出一封最有份量的公开信,大家决定这封信应由母语英语的人最终修改,统计家长群里面不同的种族,公开信最后代表的是不同种族,过千家庭,近百学校的呼声。

 

第一封公开信

38日,写给ARPHS的第一封公开信成文,同时抄送两所相关学校以及新西兰的教育部和卫生部。信中提出:

第一,根据WHO发布的相关信息,一个人被感染后可能会没有症状。 

第二,即使病毒主要是通过与有症状者的接触而传染,仍然存在无症状者传染他人的情况,这个概率可能比较低,但并不是0

因此,这些父母已经感染的学生,如果没有被适当地检测,他本人感染后,所有的同学老师都可能在不知晓的情况下,成为了紧密接触者,这将使整个学校都被置于巨大的风险之下。也就是说,这些家庭有感染者的学生,理当居家隔离,却没有被要求这样做。

更糟糕的是,Ormiston 初中的学生,还有兄弟姐妹在附近的其它中学、小学和幼儿园,这造成OrmistonFlatbush整个片区都成为高风险的区域。奥克兰文法中学的情况类似。

信中提出四大问题:

问题一,针对确诊的父母,采取了哪些居家隔离的措施?他们和孩子的饮食是怎么管理的?

问题二,在确诊父母居家隔离的情况下,谁来照顾孩子?谁去采购?谁清理家里的垃圾?家庭成员间的交叉感染如何避免?

问题三,在父母双方都被感染的情况下,孩子是否做了检测?如果没有,为什么没有?两所学校的学生和家长有权力知道这些信息。

问题四,两个孩子中如果有人确诊,是否及时公布?在这样的公共安全威胁之下,是否将立即关闭学校?

在信末,强调了写信的群体,包含近百个中小学及幼儿园的各个族裔的家长。 

信写好以后,需要找到合适的通路递交给正确的部门。于是Charm召集了执政党工党国会议员霍建强先生,国家党国会议员杨健先生、以及奥克兰市议员Paul Young先生,为了保护孩子,三位议员同心合一,进行直接沟通。

是上帝的呼召,把不同党派的人联系在一起,共同为保护孩子保护家庭保护社区做出努力!”Charm这样形容两个竞争对手党在这件事上表现出的史无前例的合一精神。

38日,霍建强先生作为执政党议员,将此信直接交给了教育部长。杨健先生作为反对党议员,也通过其教育事务发言人转交给教育部长。同日,这封信被发给ARPHS,同时抄送给上述涉及的两所学校,并发给了一些公共平台,以及HeraldStuff等媒体。

39日,周一早上,就收到教育部长通过议员霍建强先生的口头回复,表示政府会做出一些调整,并对工作组的良好的态度和有价值的建议表示由衷的感谢。

08/03/2020 

To: Auckland Regional Public Health Service, 

CC: Ormiston Junior College, Auckland Grammar School, Ministry of Health, 

Ministry of Education 

Thank you for your letter to parents and caregivers of Ormiston Junior College (OJC) 

and Auckland Grammar School (AGS), dated 05/03/2020 after the father of two 

students confirmed to be infected with Coronavirus. 

On 07/03/2020, we were once again shocked to hear the sad news that the other parent 

of the two students had been found to have contracted the virus. As fellow parents and 

caregivers our hearts have sunken to the deepest end. We can't imagine how dreadful 

this is for the family with two virus-carrying parents residing in isolation with one 

another at the same address. The two students must be stressed beyond 

comprehension and it must be difficult for them to manage going about with their 

daily life! 

Your letter stated that the students are completedly well and they have no symptoms, 

you also categorically ruled out the possibility of any other students at both schools 

being at risk of contracting the virus. 

According to World Health Organisation (WHO) operational procedures and related 

publications; it is firstly possible for a person to be with the virus but exhibits no 

symptoms. Secondly, even though the virus spreads mainly through symptomatic 

contacts, the WHO also recognises that it could still happen when a person carrying 

the virus does not have symptoms. WHO is still gathering data on this but they are 

currently giving this type of spread a low rating, not a zero rating. 

(getpic.aspx?url=https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses). 

Our primary concerns are if the students have not been properly tested for virus, then 

there is a possibility that he/she could have been infected by the sick parents. The fact 

that he/she showed no symptoms doesn't rule it out according to the above WHO 

findings. If this was the case, all classmates, some teachers, sport/art teams and any 

other people who had been in close contact with the students have now become 'close 

contact' persons who should be required to self-isolate. 

This measure has not currently been put in place which we feel is inadequate and very 

much unsafe! 

To make things worse, a considerable portion of OJC students have siblings attending 

senior college/primary school/childcare centres in Ormiston/Flatbush area. The above 

scenario will unfortunately be applicable to those educational facilities as well. AGS 

parents are also facing the same challenge. 

We do understand that without symptoms the spreading of the virus will be low, but 

how low is low? Let's establish a hypothetical case as follows: say the chance is as 

low as 1%, then a school of say 500 students could potentially develop 5 cases of contracting the virus. This is an alarming number where even if it becomes 1 case, it 

would be 1 case too many. 

We do not have peace of mind if the students in question aren't tested for COVID-19 

and the test results publicly notified. With the new development announced on 

07/03/2020, given that both parents are carrying the virus, the following questions 

need to be answered urgently: 

1). How is the home based treatment for the parents provided? How is cooking and 

hygiene facilities managed? We know that the virus spreads within close contact. 

There are multiple overseas cases where cross contamination occurred within 

households when confined in space of a house and every person in the unit eventually 

contracted the virus. A few households even perished all together leaving the entire 

family with no survivors. 

2). Assuming the children have not been infected and are still well, we are happy for 

them and wish them continue to stay well. However, how is their daily life managed? 

We can imagine many logistical challenges, who looks after them? Who does the 

shopping? Disposal of rubbish? Application of disinfectant? etc. We are concerned 

the risk of cross contamination to be present if not managed appropriately. 

3). Allow us to ask the important question, have the children been tested for the virus? 

If not, why not? Given the current scenario, this should be the top priority in our view 

especially when both parents are now sick while the entire family lived in the same 

house for a considerable amount of time already. We believe parents and students of 

both schools have the right to know the outcomes of these tests as it is very possible 

for them to have been infected before they went home for isolation, their mother’s 

case proves this is a real possibility. 

4). If any one of the two children were to test positive, it should be publicly notified. 

This would indeed be a public health threat where common practices found overseas 

are usually the immediate, temporary closure of the affected schools. 

Sydney's Epping boys high school shut down after student tests positive for 

coronavirus 

Bucks County testing comes back negative after coronavirus exposure from out-of

state guest 


We are sure there are more questions than the aforementioned in many parent’s head 

but we ask to just focus on the main issues for the time being. 

We, as a very large group strongly urge both the Ministry of Health and Ministry of 

Education to take swift action to implement more stringent and specific measures to 

prevent infection and control to better protect students, teachers, staff members, 

parents and the local community.

ARPHS回信

 310日,ARPHS亦做出回信。然而信中再次强调:新冠肺炎的传播率低于流感;19岁以下的孩子的仅占感染病例的2.4%;病毒主要是通过携带者咳嗽时喷出的颗粒传染,无症状者几乎不传染。信中还提出,政府有一套的操作程序,重点放在边境管理、早期发现和隔离、接触者追踪,以及提升个人卫生意识等行动,而非关闭学校等。


 

第二封公开信

鉴于ARPHS的信件中反映出他们对病毒的知识的欠缺,以及重视的不足,工作组认为还是有必要继续与政府互动,促使他们做出相应的调整。

于是314日,工作组的第二封公开信发给了ARPHS,并抄送给相关学校、教育部以及卫生部。在这封信里,W写道:

“ARPHS310日的信中提到COVID-19的传染率低于普通流感,然而我们研读了WHO-中国联合公报,没有发现相关的描述。事实上,中国最权威的呼吁疾病专家钟南山先生说,COVID-19的传染率数倍于流感,这些已经在韩国、意大利及其它国家得到表现。

WHO-中国联合公报里提到19岁以下的孩子仅占确诊病例的2.4%,这个来自中国的数字,没有考虑到疫情爆发时,学校正在放假这样一个背景,这个结论可能会是误导性的危险的结论。

信的末尾提出,要求教育部和卫生部对以下错误的认识进行更新:

当前,绝大多数新西兰人没有暴露于COVID-19的风险。 

事实是:WHO312日已经宣布COVID-19为全球紧急安全事件,任何国家一旦发现COVID-19的输入病例或者疫情爆发,应该立即启动最高级别的应急管理。

目前新西兰仅有少量病例,并且没有社区传播案例。

事实是:新西兰仅检测了300个人,就发现5个确诊病例,相比于其它国家的大范围的检测,以这个结果判断新西兰的疫情状况是危险的。

“COVID-19是通过咳嗽和打喷嚏传播的,和流感相似。

事实是:根据WHO相关文件,以及中国的研究,COVID-19可以附着于物体表面并存活数小时到数天,粪便、气溶胶等也是传播途径。

中国、韩国等国家已经采取了有效措施来控制病毒的传播,包括对浴室、厕所、学校、办公楼宇、火车站、地铁站以及几乎所有的公共空间进行消毒。我们希望在教育学生要洗手之外,新西兰也能对学校的教室,以及所有的公共空间进行消毒。 

14/03/2020

To: Auckland Regional Public Health Service,

CC: Ormiston Junior College, Auckland Grammar School, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education

Thank you for your response to our open letter dated 08-03-2020! We are very glad to know that the children are well. Based on the test conditions defined by Ministry of Health, given that the children do not have any symptoms are we correct in saying that the children have not been tested for the virus? We voiced our concerns in our letter and emphasized the risks of not doing the tests on the children, the possibility of asymptomatic transmission of COVID-19 as a new virus is still being researched on, no one can completely rule out such risks. It has been reported that under some circumstance infections were found to have been caused by people with no symptoms. To ensure the safety of everyone in schools, we once again strongly urge for tests to be carried out on these children and the public are informed of the test results. If any of these children tested positive the respective schools will have to be immediately closed down temporarily and close contacts of the children must be traced and tested as well.

In response to your letter, we wish to voice two main concerns, as follows.

Firstly, with regards to the statement which says “COVID-19 spreads less efficiently than influenza”, we could not find any specific mentioning of this in the Joint WHO-China Report. According to Mr. Zhong Nan Shan, China's most authoritative expert researcher on respiratory diseases, this new Coronavirus is many times more contagious than the conventional flu, evidently the effects of the fast and sustained transmission have been seen in South Korea, Italy,  and other countries.


Secondly, according to Joint WHO-China Report, children under the age of 19 only account for 2.4% of total confirmed cases of the virus, we believe this figure has been coincidentally distorted by an important fact, when the outbreak occurred in China, it coincided with school winter holidays nationwide, all school children were on holiday and mass gathering in schools were not possible, this effectively served as self-isolation for all school children, which greatly reduced the risk of virus transitions within the age group. We believe it is a mistake to simply rely on the numbers reported in China without taking into account this factor, it is in our view that to conclude that school children are more immune to COVID-19 virus is a risky assumption. Even though the situation in China has improved in great measure they are still taking schools seriously, all kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools and universities are still remain closed at present.

Finally, we wish to raise the following points regarding the latest updates from the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health:

  1. With regards to the statement which says "At this time the vast majority of people in New Zealand have no risk of exposure to the virus that cause COVID-19" 

Our point is: Refer to the Joint WHO-China Report, on page 20, “For countries with imported cases and/or outbreaks of COVID-19 1. Immediately activate the highest level of national Response Management protocols to ensure the all-of-government and all-of-society approach needed to contain COVID-19 with non-pharmaceutical public health measures”

On the 12th of March, the WHO have declared COVID-19 a pandemic, which in our view it warrants the implementation of the above level of response.

  1. "New Zealand currently has very few cases of Covid-19 and no evidence of sustained person-to-person transmission in our communities". 

Our point is: Up until 12th March total number of tests carried out in NZ is only 300, 5 confirmed cases has been found so far. In comparison to other countries where much larger  number of tests were performed on wider range of patients, we think to use a small sample of only 300 tests to evaluate the risks of community outbreak is risky.

  1. "Spread happens through coughing and sneezing by someone confirmed with Covid-19-similar To the way that influenza spreads". 

Our point is: It is documented by WHO that besides spreading through droplets the virus can also transmit through surface contactsonce infected the virus can stay alive on some surfaces for varying amount of time, from a few hours to a few days (Refer "How Does Covid-19 spread?" getpic.aspx?url=https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses). Research carried out in China and real examples studied there have concluded that, fecal-oral transmissions and aerosol transmissions are other ways the virus can spread. 

Countries including China, Korea etc applied effective infection control by disinfecting bathrooms, toilets, schools, office buildings, train stations subway stations, and almost all shared community space. We believe that besides educating our children to wash their hands regularly, we wish to ask for all classrooms and public areas in schools to be actively disinfected.

第四部分 互动终见效果

公开信首次提出无症状感染,也得到卫生部和教育部回复,并且把无症状感染信息传递给所有校长。校长反应各异,在与政府互动的过程中,确诊案例不断增多。政府及学校的也在不断调整认识和措施。

314号检出6号病例;315号,7号和8号病例分别被发现。

在此期间,校长们原来坚持不做的事也有了变化,比如允许学生戴口罩;有一些校长允许学生以担心疫情为由请假;有一些学校甚至做消毒等。 

同时政府的政策越来越紧,316号政府出公告取消所有500人以上的聚集性活动,取消了太平洋文化节。

但是管控力度仍然不够大,特别是边境未关闭,隔离措施松散,来自中国和伊朗的人被拒,但是来自意大利等重灾区的人没有被要求隔离。

对这些现象,家长们在群里有很多讨论,很多人通过发起网络签名请愿等,但效果甚微。

疫情急迫,很多家长放弃上学,工作组于323日写了另外一封公开信,要求关闭学校,并通过议员交到政府,同时也写给奥克兰市长Phil Goff先生,希望他在取消太平洋文化节等的正确的举措之上,来推动中央也做出调整。当天早上,主流媒体NZ herald也主动联系要求电话采访,同时新西兰教师工会也提出罢工。万众一心,顺势而上,当天下午国家政府终于宣布将警报级别升级到Level 3,并宣布48小时后升级到Level 4,学校关闭。

团队所有的努力,到此时与政府的最高警报级别汇合。执政党工党议员对家长防疫组织团队给予了高度评价,霍建强议员:你们功不可没,多谢,你们的努力没有白费,政府也是每一步都注意怎样控制疫情,你们保重!

家长们都非常振奋,甚至很多家长都赞Charm就是吹哨人,回顾生死时速的过程Charm回应这是吹哨团队,感慨上帝赐予一位深晓中西文化的专家W的帮助,以及众多其它工作组成员和上千家长代表的合作,才能有那么强大的力量把政见不同的执政党和反对党议员聚集在一起,抛弃政见差异,为同一个目标做出努力。她说:感谢主!我们作为基督徒,除了祷告,在这个被病毒恶魔横行的黑暗日子,应该勇敢行出来。我并不孤单,感恩有上帝预备一群本不认识的弟兄姐妹与我同行,我们依靠上帝的智慧,可以在黑暗里面发光发热,合一爱心,同心抗疫,保护孩子学校社区,感谢赞美主,哈利路亚!

W则认为:这件事的整个过程很有秩序,在多层次、杂乱无章的情况下,团队合作抽出主要信息,通过科学调研的办法,提交给政府,得到重视,感觉很欣慰。议员们也觉得合作很愉快。通过正面的渠道,很地道的新西兰的办法,向政府反映我们的心声,也提供建设性意见,如果华社以后以此为常态和政府沟通,是很好的事情。


第五部分 lockdown 继续前行

这个团队在lockdown期间,还继续默默服务中,大家在不同领域继续奋战,帮助协调筹款捐赠社区,帮助护士筹集PPE,基督团队里面的医务人员继续翻译国内最新资料,团队也帮助医务人员提高PPE的建议公开信快速传达到政府。

看到很多家长因为中西文化差异,送口罩成为难题,根据Kiwi心理特点,团队特制了有口罩分析数据图案,并且配有温馨话语的宣传单,发起了倡议献爱心,送口罩给其他种族邻居,家长响应,纷纷收到洋人邻居的肯定表扬信,大家都非常欢欣鼓舞,为社区种族和谐增添了温暖。

Lockdown两周后,新西兰出现了拐点,大家都非常欣慰,政府执政党工党中文官方网站对这个团队做出了高度肯定:“ 真正能够起到向政府提出合理化建议的是一些华人家长群和基督教协会群。他们在防疫之初,提出学校要停止大规模的学生集会,以及对已经发生家长感染的学校进行合理隔离。这是一个民主国家公民所起到的作用!

新西兰家长防疫组织任重道远,今天复活节,政府新闻公布新西兰学校或于4月29日重开,家长们再次联合起来,集思广益,寻求更多合理化建议,大家拭目以待,再次通过公开信方式与政府和教育部良性沟通,寻求最佳方案。大家为了同一个目标同心合力:保护孩子学校社区。God defend New Zealand! God bless New Zealand!
