Convicted drug stealing teacher still registered

The Labour party and the teacher unions will have you believe that teacher registration is there to protect children, this is the reason they give for opposing Charter Schools, because the government will not require compulsory registration of teachers at Charter Schools.

Registration they tell us is to prevent bad people from becoming or remaining teachers…like this convicted drug stealing teaching ratbag

A Tauranga Intermediate teacher found guilty of stealing 11 tablets of a young student’s ADHD medication had earlier been dismissed from her job after a disciplinary meeting.

Helen Frances Aubrey, 44, was found guilty by Judge Robert Wolff in Tauranga District Court on Friday of a charge of theft of the Class B controlled drug, Concerta, after the conclusion of a two-day judge-alone defended hearing.

Concerta is a prescription drug that treats attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 

Judge Wolff said he was entirely satisfied that Aubrey had taken 11 tablets of the drug on May 28 this year after the student had given her a bottle containing 29 pills.

The same day a screwed up label from the pill bottle was found in a rubbish bin in Aubrey’s office. Police alleged the pills were stolen by the special needs co-ordinator, who suffers depression, for her personal use and also to assist with weight loss.

But the judge said it was not necessary for police to prove the motive for the theft.

I note too that this ratbag drug stealing teacher is still registered to teach (Registration number 204869) until 2016.



Nice to see the Teachers’ Council upholding professional standards.
