IT might have been a long time coming but the right decision has been made.

A terminally ill woman has now been given the go-ahead to send both her children to the same school after a second appeal into the protracted case.

As Stuart Amey said of his cancer-suffering wife Michelle: ”Knowing the boys are happy at school will be one less worry.”

Credit should also go to Christchurch councillor Lesley Dedman who has helped the family through this trying saga.
