The parents of two students from St Bede’s College in Christchurch have taken the school to court over a decision by the Principal.
The two boys  were banned from rowing at the Maadi Cup this week after acting silly in Auckland airport and being arrested by airport officials.
However, the boys’ parents felt that the decision wasn’t fair on the students and took the school to the High Court in Christchurch to allow their sons to row.
The court agreed that the correct process had not been followed by the school and have let the boys row in the first two days of the regatta.
The Board of Trustees from St Bede’s will be meeting soon to discuss the issue and if the boys will be able to continue to row this week.
