Urgency Needed Over Paedophiles As School Trustees
Urgency Needed Over Paedophiles As School Trustees Issue
New Zealand First MP, Hon Brian Donnelly, is pressing the Government to urgently address the issue of paedophiles on School Boards of Trustees.

“The situation is intolerable and the Minister of Education must act with all haste to rectify it.
