The Wakatipu High School Foundation works with the community to support the only High School in the Wakatipu Basin to deliver Aotearoa's best 'all-round' education.
The Wakatipu High School Foundation funds a range of initiatives within Wakatipu High School, including supporting students who are struggling financially to encouraging high academic achievement and making many important extra- curricular activities possible.
We facilitate connection between Wakatipu High School and the Queenstown and wider Wakatipu community, school alumni and business community, and provide a method for the community to financially support WHS in delivering a great all-round education to the youth of the Wakatipu Basin. Our funding primarily comes from our local business partners, annual events, investments, generous donors, appeals & grants.
The Wakatipu High School Foundation is having a very real and positive impact in our community, funding the school approx $200,000 per year and raising over $1.6 million dollars for Wakatipu High School since 2013.
Thank you so much for the support from the Awhi fund. Receiving this money for my child allows her to be able to compete in her chosen sport and is letting her progress and the sky is the limit.
It also allows me as a single mother to make sure my children aren’t disadvantaged and have the same opportunities as their peers. I am very grateful for all the help we receive. Thank you so very much.
