An Act to give effect to a resolution by the Nelson Diocesan Synod of the Anglican Church to vest the assets of the Whakarewa School Trust Board in a trust for the descendants of the original Maori owners from whom the said assets were acquired and to make consequential provisions to enable the dissolution of the Whakarewa School Trust Board

  • Preamble

    Whereas—

    • (a) certain land described in Schedule 1 was purported to be the subject of Crown grants dated 25 July 1853 and 4 August 1853, containing respectively 660 acres or thereabouts, and 418 acres 10 perches or thereabouts, such grants having been made to the then Bishop of New Zealand of the Anglican Church for the purposes of establishing a school for the education of children of all races and of children of other poor and destitute persons, being inhabitants of islands in the Pacific Ocean, and for the support of that school so long as religious education, industrial training, and instruction in the English language was given to the youth educated at that school:

    • (b) no school has ever been erected on the said land but a school has operated intermittently supported by income earned from the said land, and no such school has operated at all since last century:

    • (c) the Whakarewa School Trust Board is an Anglican Church Trust incorporated in 1907 under the Religious, Charitable, and Educational Trust Boards Incorporation Act 1884 with the spelling of Wakarewa School Trust Board and administers (pursuant to the terms of the trusts established by the said Crown grants dated 25 July 1853 and 4 August 1853) the original land assets, particularly located at Whakarewa, but also other land assets and bequests acquired by the Anglican Church or the Whakarewa School Trust Board subsequent to the said grants in the Nelson and Motueka districts:

    • (d) the Synod of the Diocese of Nelson of The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia accepts that, particularly having regard to the principles embodied in the Treaty of Waitangi, it is now just and desirable to vest the land and certain other assets derived from the land in a charitable trust for the benefit of the descendants of the original Maori owners of the said land:

    • (e) the original owners were established by Land Commissioner Spain in 1845 to be members of the Ngati Rarua and Te Atiawa manawhenua ki Motueka iwi and the full names of the then Maori owners were in judgments of the Maori Land Court delivered in 1892 and 1893 as set forth in Schedule 2:

    • (f) the descendants of the said original owners desire that the terms of the charitable trust to be created should be broader than the trust objects contained in the Anglican Church Trusts Act 1981:

    • (g) there is no power to alter the objects of the said trust to a wider extent than those contained in the Anglican Church Trusts Act 1981 and it is impracticable and inexpedient for the trustees to apply to the High Court of New Zealand for a variation of the objects of the trust as aforesaid:

    • (h) there is no power in terms of the Anglican Church Trusts Act 1981 for a scheme of arrangement to provide for a transfer of the other significant assets as distinct from the land only of the Whakarewa School Trust Board to a trust to be known as the Ngati Rarua-Atiawa Iwi Trust as set forth in Schedule 3 for the benefit of the descendants of the original Maori owners:

    • (i) there are funds available to or held by the Whakarewa School Trust Board as referred to in Schedule 4, which funds were given to the Whakarewa School Trust Board after 1853 and are separate and distinct from the land and other assets to be vested in the new trust for the descendants of the original owners, and further it is desired to vest such funds in the Nelson Diocesan Trust Board for charitable purposes:

    • (j) it is desired to dissolve the Whakarewa School Trust Board consequent upon the passing of this Act:

    • (k) the objects of this Act cannot be attained otherwise than by legislation.

Be it therefore enacted by the Parliament of New Zealand as follows:

1 Short Title and commencement
  • (1) This Act may be cited as the Ngati Rarua-Atiawa Iwi Trust Empowering Act 1993.

    (2) This Act shall come into force on 1 October 1993.

  • Under section 16D of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, reprints are presumed to correctly state, as at the date of the reprint, the law enacted by the principal enactment and by the amendments to that enactment. This presumption applies even though editorial changes authorised by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 have been made in the reprint.

    This presumption may be rebutted by producing the official volumes of statutes or statutory regulations in which the principal enactment and its amendments are contained.

3 How reprints are prepared
  • A number of editorial conventions are followed in the preparation of reprints. For example, the enacting words are not included in Acts, and provisions that are repealed or revoked are omitted. For a detailed list of the editorial conventions, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/editorial-conventions/ or Part 8 of the Tables of New Zealand Acts and Ordinances and Statutory Regulations and Deemed Regulations in Force.

4 Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989
  • Section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 authorises the making of editorial changes in a reprint as set out in sections 17D and 17E of that Act so that, to the extent permitted, the format and style of the reprinted enactment is consistent with current legislative drafting practice. Changes that would alter the effect of the legislation are not permitted.

    A new format of legislation was introduced on 1 January 2000. Changes to legislative drafting style have also been made since 1997, and are ongoing. To the extent permitted by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, all legislation reprinted after 1 January 2000 is in the new format for legislation and reflects current drafting practice at the time of the reprint.

    In outline, the editorial changes made in reprints under the authority of section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 are set out below, and they have been applied, where relevant, in the preparation of this reprint:

    • omission of unnecessary referential words (such as of this section and of this Act)

    • typeface and type size (Times Roman, generally in 11.5 point)

    • layout of provisions, including:

      • indentation

      • position of section headings (eg, the number and heading now appear above the section)

    • format of definitions (eg, the defined term now appears in bold type, without quotation marks)

    • format of dates (eg, a date formerly expressed as the 1st day of January 1999 is now expressed as 1 January 1999)

    • position of the date of assent (it now appears on the front page of each Act)

    • punctuation (eg, colons are not used after definitions)

    • Parts numbered with roman numerals are replaced with arabic numerals, and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • case and appearance of letters and words, including:

      • format of headings (eg, headings where each word formerly appeared with an initial capital letter followed by small capital letters are amended so that the heading appears in bold, with only the first word (and any proper nouns) appearing with an initial capital letter)

      • small capital letters in section and subsection references are now capital letters

    • schedules are renumbered (eg, Schedule 1 replaces First Schedule), and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • running heads (the information that appears at the top of each page)

    • format of two-column schedules of consequential amendments, and schedules of repeals (eg, they are rearranged into alphabetical order, rather than chronological).
