View Hill School gets WOW’d

A group of students from View Hill School were given the chance to fly to Wellington for an educational trip after meeting their 2,000 Airpoints Dollar™ donation target.

After entering their local wearable arts competition every year and having come away with many prizes to date, a group of students from View Hill School had the opportunity to visit the vibrant city of Wellington. Thanks to the World of WearableArt who kindly donated tickets to the show, the kids also had a chance to experience a World of WearableArt Awards Show first-hand for the very first time.

The educational trip of New Zealand’s capital involved visiting a number of iconic landmarks and venues including Parliament and Te Papa, and the students also experienced a swim at Freyberg pool, as well as a ride in Wellington’s famous cable car. Many new experiences were had, ranging from a first plane ride, to the first time staying in an inner city hotel. Cuba Street and Lambton Quay proved to be a contrasting shopping experience, with the children making the most of the vibrant inner city living experience that Wellington offers.

“The World of WearableArt Awards Show was inspirational and the children were able to see just how high the calibre of their own creations were. They saw how far you can take your imagination if you put your mind to it. Thanks so much Air New Zealand for the experience, it was one in a million.” - Sarah Lafleur, Teacher.
