Another Schoolgirl Brawl – In Wellington Mall

“There has been another ugly incident involving two groups of school students in Wellington.
Police say they attended an incident at Westfield mall in Lower Hutt yesterday afternoon because of reports of fighting between two groups of girls. One witness described seeing some of the students from rival schools in the Hutt Valley having blood on their school uniforms.
Police made no arrests as the 30 to 40 girls involved in the fight ran off as officers arrived.”
No word yet about the schools that were involved.
Update: One report on alleged that the schools involved were Hutt Valley High School and Wainuiomata High School. This has yet to be confirmed officially.
Residents of Wainuiomata were recently banned from a hotel in Palmerston North for ‘bad behaviour’ and HVHS was involved in a stoush in February after which 9 people were arrested for unlawful assembly.
