Message of goodwill

Message of goodwill

Sir—On behalf of the Student -Christian Movement, I would like to say that I strongly support the policy of allowing overseas students to attend New Zealand universities. We believe that this is, or could be beneficial to both New Zealand students and the overseas students themselves. On an individual level we believe that increased contact between students of different countries and cultures can help to create mutual understanding and ties of friendship. On a global level we believe that it is a matter of economic, moral and political necessity for the richer nations (of which New Zealand is generally regarded as one) to help the poorer nations to raise their standards-of-living, and help their people to develop their fullest potential.

For these reasons, I formally extend to all overseas students a message of goodwill and friendship, and hope that a closer relationship can be achieved in the future between overseas students and members of the S.C.M. I remain.

Yours sincerely,

Jon. Boyes.
(President S.C.M.)
