Kelvin Smythe lost his battle against prostate cancer yesterday morning (Saturday 13th October NZ time). Funeral details yet to be decided.
Kelvin fought against neoliberalism in New Zealand primary school education, right from the outset of the euphemistic ‘tomorrow’s schools’ in 1990, with everything he had, and was a rebel to the end.
His death is a huge loss to primary education.
Kelvin’s funeral will be held on Wednesday 24th of October at 1pm
Trinity St Paul’s Union Parish
Cnr Queen and Bryce Streets
