21:14, Dec 18 2012

The man accused of assaulting the principal of St Joseph's School in Upper Hutt has been told not to enter school grounds.

Daniel Wilson, 39, appeared in Upper Hutt District Court today, where he was remanded on bail until January.

Wilson, the uncle of a pupil at the school, is not to enter St Joseph's grounds or to approach principal Peter Ahern and one other person.

The incident, which happened last week, followed a meeting between Ahern and two relatives of students, who were concerned about a convicted paedophile's visit to the school.

The principal suffered bruised ribs and a large cut to the head, and required medical attention.
