Airpoints™ for Schools - Selected schools 2020

Your donations are making a difference to Kiwi kids

We are working with our Airpoints for Schools recipients and supporting any changes to their travel plans following the impact of COVID-19.

School targets last updated 18 March 2020

Airpoints™ for Schools supports New Zealand school communities by enabling them to benefit from educational travel. The programme aims to provide new opportunities to Kiwi kids who might otherwise not have the chance to travel and broaden their horizons. Airpoints Dollar™ donations from Airpoints members, matched by Air New Zealand, help schools with domestic or international flight costs, giving our aspiring young leaders the opportunity to gain new experiences, knowledge and inspiration to reach their potential.

The 10 schools participating in this year's programme have been selected for outstanding environmental, cultural, community or academic objectives - learn about the amazing projects and goals they are working towards below. By donating as little as 10 Airpoints Dollars, you can help get their dreams off the ground. Donations close 30 April 2020.
