Hundreds of school students came out in droves on Friday throughout Hawke's Bay, along with the rest of the country, in the fight against Climate Change.
Many students took time off schools to take part in the event.

Havelock North Intermediate pupils were also out during the day, demonstrating at various corners in Havelock North holding signs to support the fight against Climate Change.
The hundreds of Hawke's Bay students who marched were part of School Strike 4 Climate NZ, which is part of a global movement inspired by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg who began her lone protest in Stockholm in August 2018, with a sign that read "school strike for climate".
Since then students in 150 countries have taken to the streets to show their support for the cause and their fight against Climate Change.
