I was honoured to visit Hamilton Christian School yesterday to help make the announcement around them moving towards becoming an integrated school, which will cut parent fees and provide extra educational resources for the school.

Since my election to Parliament I have been a strong advocate of this proposal, speaking with Minister Hipkins on many occasions.
