This week Bronwyn spoke to Tracey Martin about the new $75.8 million dollar funding announcement for counselling in schools, which includes the first allocation for primary school counselling in New Zealand’s history. They also covered the announcement of $160 million dollars in funding for the the Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) which provides specialist teacher aide support to student with the highest learning needs. Lastly they spoke about the recent passing of an amendment of the Crimes Act definition of Female Genital Mutilation. This is particularly historic as it marks the first time a bill has been put forward signed by a female member of all four major parties.
