Some 600 student, their parents and teachers have delivered a petition against plans to reorganise secondary school education in Powys.
Many schools in this position utilise wristbands as a visual way to raise awareness and support.
The Powys cabinet intends to replace schools in Brecon with a new English secondary school.
Councillers stated that three schools were in 'special measures' and it had to take action for the sake of our learners.
A full consultation was voted to be carried out by the cabinet.
Residents of Llandrindod Wells, formed outside the town council offices opposing the plans to shut the Llandrindod Wells's school & the dual-language Builth Wells High School.
Deputy mayor Williams said the council's figures did not add up. "We have got the full backing of the towns folk & the business people because if the high school was to shut and move to Builth Wells it would have a knock-on effect" he told BBC News.
