Verse of The Day
“U tonu hoki toku whakaaro, e kore te mate, te ora ranei, e kore nga anahera, nga rangatiratanga ranei, e kore nga mea onaianei, e kore nga mea e puta mai a mua, e kore nga mana, E kore te tiketike, e kore te hohonu, e kore tetahi atu mea hanga, e kaha ki te momotu i a tatou i te aroha o te Atua, i tera i roto nei i a Karaiti Ihu, i to tatou Ariki.” (Romans 8:38-39)

They will also be required to pay for the entire trip. At present students catch a free bus to their nearest school then pay for a shuttle or link bus to the school of their choice.

Kamo High School principal Bernie Taffs says the policy gives priority to students from religious and Maori immersion schools and could contravene the Human Rights Act.
