Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 11. 1965.

One Returns

One Returns

The Department allowed one; student to return, but the other five were still in New Zealand. Nine months later, it would seem that these five are still dissatisfied.

Another student came to New Zealand as a post-graduate technical teacher. He was in a high school throughout 1964 as a student woodwork teacher.

In November of that year he was placed as a carpenter with a building contractor. He said he had no say in this.

He claimed he received no wages whatsoever for working full-time for five weeks. A Christmas present of £10 had been given to him by the builder.

In May and June of this year he was sent to work in three different factories. There he spent six weeks doing ordinary manual labour which, he said, had little bearing on his training as a teacher. Again he worked without wages.
