Hundreds rally against school closures

Hundreds of teachers declared a motion of no confidence in Ms Parata at a rally inside a packed CBS Canterbury Arena after the school bell this afternoon. The teachers, joined by parents and pupils, then marched on the local Ministry of Education office to deliver the message. Trains were halted during the vocal 500m march where protesters waved placards and chanted, "Hek no, she must go", and "Hekia Parata, hear our voice, we want options, we want choice".
