Hearing set for sacked principal

01:57, May 23 2014

Sacked Salford School principal Marlene Campbell will face off against her former employer at a week-long hearing.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment communications adviser Philippa Norman said an "investigation meeting" between Campbell and Salford School would begin on Monday.

The meeting is scheduled to last all week. Campbell did not respond to request for comment yesterday, but Dunedin-based lawyer Fiona McMillan confirmed she would represent Campbell, dismissed by school commissioner Nicola Hornsey in March, following a four-month suspension.

The school has been under statutory management since November 2012.
