INVEST IN THE EDUCATION OF WAKATIPU YOUTH

MUS2905150017.jpg

Our vision is to create a supportive and well-resourced environment for all students; enabling them to reach their potential.

Since 2013, the WHS Foundation has supported the delivery of an outstanding education at our school. 

We recognise that through education, our youth can enrich both their own lives and our community.

We believe that when we all work together, great things happen.

In what has been a difficult time for the Wakatipu community, we are proud to work with a range of amazing supportive businesses and committed community members to make a difference at WHS.

 

The generosity from the Wakatipu community ensured that in 2020, we once again were able to support WHS with $252,000.
