Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 27, No. 14. 1964.

Responsibility as Well as Need

Responsibility as Well as Need

New Zealand students have thus an immediate and urgent need to understand the region in which they live and the attitudes of their people. But we also have the same responsibility to members of society—for this is a fundamental problem of our society.

A recent editorial in the Dominion stressed the importance to New Zealanders of a vastly greater knowledge of Asia and Asians.

"Every day that near north of ours comes nearer."

New Zealand students should be taking a lead in this movement. We should ensure that our education system is re-orientated to meet these national needs, and we should be determined that the Government takes an enlightened and sympathetic stand on matters which are important to the people of Asia and tne Pacific.
