Religion in New Zealand Schools

This paper ‘Religion in New Zealand Schools – Questions and Concerns’ has been prepared by the Human Rights Commission and Professor Paul Morris of Victoria University.

The paper is based on frequently asked questions and concerns about religion in schools, with a focus on state primary schools. It sets out relevant legislation about religion in schools and is intended to act as a resource for Boards of Trustees, Principals and the wider school community in thinking about how schools can give a place to religion whilst ensuring security and dignity for all.
