Waikari School Visit
We were privileged to host Waikari School at the GCH Aviation Emergency Air Centre this week. The school recently held a Twilight Market where the children showcased their handmade eco-friendly crafts created during terms 2 and 3. The children chose to donate all funds raised to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service because they recognize the importance of the service in rural areas.
The whole school (31 children) got involved and raised $848; which they presented in person to the rescue crew. We were all blown away by the huge effort made by such a small group
The children had a great time meeting our crew and looking at the rescue helicopters. Q&A time was definitely a highlight – there were even some questions the crew had never been asked!
Thank you Waikari School for your amazing support. You are some of the loveliest children we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Be sure to look out for your star turn in upcoming issues of North Canterbury News and Northern Outlook.
