Students at Massey High school this week called on management in a petition to design a summer uniform.

They felt blazers, trousers and ankle-length skirts were not ideal in hot weather.

The issue was raised after a senior student started a petition on which gained more than 1000 signatures.

Board of Trustees chairman John Garelja joined Paul Henry in the studio to talk about the issue and how the school plans to deal with it.

Mr Garelja says the board are working with the supplier to find a lighter weight material to use to make the uniforms.

He admits there was a miscommunication with parents but says it’s up to students to decide whether they wear the blazer or not.
