The Herald reports:
Education Minister Anne Tolley is furious a Southland school put her signature on a fake letter, and officials are investigating the forgery.
Otatara Primary School pupils were given the fake letter yesterday, saying their school day was to be extended by one hour.
Written on Education Ministry letterhead, it was “signed” by Mrs Tolley, who was angry when she learned of it.
“It’s unbelievable that teachers would do this to children and I’m angry that the school has used my name,” she said. …
Otatara principal Sharon Livingstone told the Southland Times the school was uncomfortable with the news media attention, and the letter was a “mistake” that was not meant to go home to parents.
