It’s hoped the 11 year old Paeroa boy who was barred from attending school after he assaulted a teacher and threatened other children with a knife will be able to attend a mainstream school one day.

He was unable to return to Paeroa Central School when Principal Janet Jones defied the Ministry of Education and refused to allow him back at her school after the incident involving violence and a knife last August.

The boy attended a special education class in Thames late last year and is due to return to the Thames Valley Alternative Education Centre soon.

He has been closely monitored and is said to be enjoying his special education class.
