Bethlehem College, a Christian school in Tauranga, has recently come under fire for asking parents to sign a statement of belief, saying marriage is between a man and a woman.
LGBTQ+ advocates have condemned this practice, calling it discriminatory and homophobic.
The Ministry of Education has since told the College that they must remove the anti-same-sex statement in their Charter, or they will consider a formal intervention.
However, several ex-students of the College have since come forward with allegations of homophobia and discrimination at the school.
Christina Huang spoke to Shaneel Lal, Co-Founder of End Conversion Therapy in NZ, who launched a petition that received almost 6000 signatures at the time of this interview, for the Education Review Office to investigate the school.
