An Act to extend the powers of the Whanganui College Board of Trustees, and to vary the trusts upon which the properties of that Board are held

  • Preamble

    Whereas by Crown grant dated 13 October 1852, after reciting that a school was about to be established in Wanganui under the superintendence of the Right Reverend George Augustus, Lord Bishop of New Zealand, for the education of children of Her Majesty's subjects of all races, and of children of other poor and destitute persons being the inhabitants of islands in the Pacific Ocean, certain land in the district of Wanganui containing 250 acres and 32 perches, more or less (which land is more particularly described in Schedule 1), was granted unto the said George Augustus, Lord Bishop of New Zealand, and his successors to hold unto the said George Augustus, Lord Bishop of New Zealand, and his successors in trust nevertheless and for the use and towards the maintenance and support of the said school so long as religious education, industrial training, and instruction in the English language should be given to the youth educated therein or maintained thereat:

    And whereas approximately 39 acres of the said land were taken by the Crown by Proclamation in the year 1947:

    And whereas the balance of the said piece or parcel of land described in Schedule 1 is now vested (subject to the trusts declared by the said Crown grant) in a Board of Trustees incorporated under the Religious, Charitable, and Educational Trusts Boards Incorporation Act 1884 under the name of the Whanganui College Board of Trustees (hereinafter referred to as the Board of Trustees):

    And whereas the Board of Trustees has maintained, and is maintaining, 2 schools at Wanganui pursuant to and in terms of the said trusts:

    And whereas, pursuant to the Church of England Trusts Act 1913, the members of the Board of Trustees are appointed by the Wellington Diocesan Trusts Board, and the Board of Trustees is responsible to make periodical reports to the Synod of the Diocese of Wellington and to the General Synod:

    And whereas, with the object of best furthering the education contemplated in the said Crown grant, it is expedient that the industrial training referred to in the said Crown grant should be given by the Education Department at technical colleges fully equipped with the plant and apparatus necessary for modern industrial training and that the Board of Trustees, in consideration of the concession to the Crown hereinafter mentioned, should be released forever from their responsibility to give industrial training at the said schools and that the trusts declared by the said Crown grant should be varied accordingly:

    And whereas the Education Department already provides and will continue to provide industrial training at Wanganui:

    And whereas it is desirable further to clarify and define the trusts of the said Crown grant:

    And whereas the Board of Trustees has leased to the Wanganui Education Board under leases for terms of up to 60 years certain portions of the said land which are more particularly described in Schedule 2, and which leases are for the terms set forth in Schedule 2 and do not provide for any compensation to the lessee for improvements:

    And whereas the Wanganui Education Board holds on renewable lease from the Board of Trustees certain other portions of the said land which are more particularly described in Schedule 3:

    And whereas the Wanganui Education Board has effected improvements of considerable value upon the land contained in all the aforesaid leases.

    Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that contain transitional, savings, or application provisions that cannot be compiled in the reprint are also included, after the principal enactment, in chronological order. For more information, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/reprints/ .

2 Status of reprints
  • 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).
