If the Southern Farmer’s Market is to be evicted,

Southern Farmers Market committee member Marianne Henderson said the committee received a letter from Southland Boys’ High School in November, saying the Ministry of Education had decided schools could not be used for profit-making activities and the market would have to move.

Doesn’t that mean that the Bluff Market at Bluff School faces the same?

    More stupid bureaucracy. Schools are community facilities and the more the community can be encouraged to use them the better for everyone. It should be up to local school committees what they can make from such things so the school can gain some financial benefits. You would think their focus would be on the many schools that are closed and falling into disrepair. They don’t engender pride in the young people and gives the appearance we don’t value education.

    and this is from the ministry that is working towards Charter Schools, which are …guess what …
    ‘just for profit’ schools…hypocrites…
