Under section 79B(1) of the Education Act 1989, I prescribe an exemption to the mandatory condition in section 79A(5)(a) for all boards of trustees receiving a discretionary grant.
This exemption enables boards to which a discretionary grant is made to seek or receive any solicited voluntary payment from parents for any school camp.
A “school camp” is any curriculum-related activity where students are expected to stay overnight as part of that activity.
This notice takes effect on the date of publication.
Dated at Wellington this 22nd day of October 2019.
Hon CHRIS HIPKINS, Minister of Education.
