Hutt Valley High students have taken their school work to the lawns of Parliament to protest against underfunding after toxic mould was discovered on their campus.
In late March the discovery of "unsafe levels of mould" in a block of classrooms at the school prompted further air testing of the building, while students took lessons in the hall and library.
About 100 pupils parked up at Parliament today with their school work, chairs and tables to highlight their plight.
Head student Patrick Maslen said 16 classrooms had been closed, as well as part of the gym and some office spaces due to the mould.
