Kids helicopter flight to school

Helicopter landing at school

The last day of term meant more than just a holiday for six lucky children last Friday! Instead they got to be escorted by helicopter over the Taupo township, landing onto school grounds like real VIPs by Helistar Helicopters. This was the result of a competition which was ran in conjunction with the Helistar locals day held earlier in the month. It was all smiles and big waves from - Jesse Hay of St Patricks, Jamie King from Taupo Intermediate, Ilish Barrett from Hilltop, Tom Wilson, Ella Lilburn and Lauren King all from Wairakei School.
