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
