Four Rangi Ruru students, who are in London with 12 others as part of a hockey development tour, will be part of the ANZAC dawn celebrations in London tomorrow (April 25th).
Principal Dr Sandra Hastie, who is with the girls, says she and Year 13 students Abby Lennon, Aimee Hayward, Claudia Reid and Lucy Simpson will lay a wreath at the New Zealand War Memorial in Hyde Park.
Being smack in the middle of exams was no deterrent to student leaders from ACG Strathallan in Karaka who walked more than 300km over 18 hours as part of Relay for Life.
Twenty-five students in Years 12 and 13 took part in the event, which raises money for The Cancer Society. They walked 662 laps around Bruce Pulman Park in Takanini and raised more than $5,000.
“A big challenge was the cold during the night and the fact we had to study for exams on the Sunday after minimal sleep,” said student president Mckenzie Northcott. “It made for a long afternoon on the Sunday!”
