The principal of a Whangarei primary school has asked the Education Ministry to clarify his legal rights, after two parents insisted on taking their children away from the school during an Armed Offender Squad lockdown yesterday. A house in Mahana Place in the suburb of Raumanga was cordoned off in the afternoon, after reports of a violent incident there.
