Pioneer Generation ~ Mt Stuart Wind Farm Opening ~ Global Wind Day

Today Waitahuna School was privileged to attend the Opening of the Mount Stuart Wind Farm. Although we couldn't visit the Wind Farm due to there being 2 inches of snow on Mount Stuart, we were warmly welcomed at the Waitahuna Hall.  The school was centre stage and the childrens' behaviour and manners were a credit to them.  Fraser Jonker, Pioneer Generations CEO gave a presentation which supported many of the things the children have learnt about during our Wind Energy Unit. Mr Jonker also highlighted the relationship that has been formed between their company and Waitahuna School and commented that Waitahuna School was 'INSPIRATIONAL'.

We would like to thank the friends of school who came with us to share this historic opening and also credit goes to our wonderful parents who took the time to prepare lunch for the large crowd. Thank you 
Mrs Blackmore

Well done to the Waitahuna School. Sounds like a great time, such a shame there was so much snow that you couldn't get back up to the turbines.

These 2 old "ladies" who attended thought the posters were excellent and so were the children on the day. Well done Waitahuna School.
Great work in the kitchen as well. Mrs Blackmore well done.
