THE father of a 15-year-old schoolboy who died after a schoolyard scuffle called for calm and peace during a mass walkout from the northern NSW school today.

Jai Morcom, 15, died in a Gold Coast hospital on Saturday after a fight at Mullumbimby High School at recess on Friday morning.

Hundreds of students and parents, some wearing green armbands and carrying signs, walked out of the school, marched through the town and gathered in a park.

For some, the walk was a protest against a so-called “culture of bullying and violence” they say exists at the school and led to Jai’s death. Full story.
