A Hastings intermediate school was put into lock down yesterday because of a disruptive student.

All nine classrooms at Heretaunga Intermediate were locked down until teachers could calm the student who was wandering the grounds.

Principal David Lunny said the student did not respond to instructions from teachers or his parents who were present.

''We took an opportunity to go into lock down. Coincidentally we are holding a full lock down practice next week as part of our normal routine of practicing earthquake, fire and lock down drills.''

A letter was sent home to parents informing them of the incident.

''We like to keep our community informed - so that no misinformation gets home.''

Mr Lunny would not discuss what action would be taken involving the student, but said normal school procedure would be followed.
