More than 2000 Cantabrians have gathered in Christchurch to rally against proposed changes to the region's education system.

The thousands, who gathered across four netball courts at Hagley Park, urged Education Minister Hekia Parata to "leave our kids alone".

Students, principles and MPs added their voice against the government's proposal to shut 13 schools and merge 18 others.
