Hi All, I am wanting to have approximately 6 Ladies t shirts printed. The art work has already been done but the present provider is only prepared to do a minimum run of 10 units. Costly otherwise. Grateful for suggestions Thanks

Should parents be charged if their kids wag school?

The team Reporter from Bay News

Hi neighbours - a teen who refused to go to school has cost his parents after they were charged $50 under the Education Act.

The court heard that over a period of 62 school days, the teen was unjustifiably absent on 38 days, with a further seven classified as justified absence.

What are your thoughts? Should parents be charged if their kids wag school?
