He was registered, so he thought he’d grab her by the pussy

Teacher Registration is supposed to protect the kids. That is what Chris Hipkins tells us, that is why Labour opposes Charter Schools.

Yet, almost every week we see stories like this.

An Auckland teacher has had his registration cancelled after he put his hand up a colleague’s skirt and commented on the size of her breasts.

However, the New Zealand Teachers’ Disciplinary Tribunal said if Wayne Mackay re-applied for registration, he should be treated with positive consideration, but only if the Teachers’ Council believed he was rehabilitated.

In 2012, Mackay was accused of putting his hand up his colleague’s skirt and touching her genitals while he was employed at Pakuranga College.

The case was heard in November 2016 after Mackay delayed it through legal action.

The tribunal found Mackay guilty, according to a decision released on Monday.  

It outlined the evidence the woman gave, that before the incident Mackay had been “too forward” and had called her “damn sexy”.

It came to a head on an evening in February when the pair were preparing for a parents’ evening, and Mackay knelt near a laptop connected to a projector.

It was then that he put his hand up her skirt, and later on told her it would not be the last time he would try to do it, she said.

The victim said she was left feeling powerless and dirty. In a conversation later that night about staff T-shirts, Mackay asked what size her breasts were, and told her he would have to feel them.

The next day she complained to the school’s principal. She also laid complaints with the police, and the PPTA. The police interviewed her, but decided not to prosecute.

The assault left the female teacher devastated and suffering post-traumatic stress, she told the tribunal.

Mackay had a different version of events, and said the teacher was wearing a shirt and had flashed her underwear at him. He also claimed she grabbed his hand and pulled it between her legs.

He claimed that on the night of the incident she was wearing an inappropriately short skirt. The tribunal saw the skirt during the hearing, and disagreed.

He later told his wife his version of events, and in March complained to the school that he had been sexually assaulted by the woman. He also accused her of making a malicious complaint.

The tribunal heard Mackay, who moved to New Zealand in 2001, had been charged with indecent assault of a student in South Africa, but acquitted of all charges.

Every. Week.

There is a systemic problem in education…creeps, pedos and weirdos seem to have easy access to kids.
