A school boy who is refusing to cut his hair to conform to school rules has taken his fight to court.
Year 12 student Lucan Battison was suspended by St John’s College’s principal Paul Melloy last month for having long hair.
The rule at his school states that hair needed to be off the collar and out of the student’s eyes.
Lucan has not returned to school since.
The boys father Troy Battison is seeking a review of the suspension in the High Court at Wellington.
