Westpac Helicopter Visit -Good news - I'm pleased to confirm that the Westpac Waikato Air Ambulance will visit your school at 12.30 on Friday 26 August (assuming there's not an emergency on the day!) They'll have room in the chopper for 4 children to go for a short flight.
Ahead of the visit, a crew member from the base in Hamilton will contact you directly to discuss safety measures.
Fingers crossed for sunny day!
