IS RELIGION IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS PERMISSIBLE?

Yes :) – Under the 1964 Education Act ("religion in NZ Schools" and the NZ "Bill of Rights" Act, 1990) religious instruction and observance is permitted as long as it is done in a way that does not discriminate against anyone who does not share that belief.
