Damon Wyman and David Bird led a campaign to remove the wireless system from Te Horo School and replace it with cable-based internet due to concerns it could cause cancer and other health problems.
Damon is the father of Ethan who died from a brain tumor and had attended the local school. His son was exposed to Wi-Fi at school, and he also slept with an Internet-connected iPod under his pillow at night.
The school sent a survey to parents, and after reviewing the results agreed to remove the wi-fi in the junior classrooms. Watch the video here: http://tvnz.co.nz/technology-news/fathers-win-school-wi-fi-battle-5787916/video
