Senior Wellington Trip 2020

By Robyn Baker

Senior Wellington Trip 2020.

After an initial cancellation due to COVID lockdown, the 2020 Wellington Trip was lucky to be rescheduled for the 1st week of Term 3. This is the second year Ms Baker has taken a group of Year 12 students for four nights to visit Parliament, The Reserve Bank and the Treasury office. 15 students were perfect ambassadors for Otamatea, engaging in the tours and seminars with interest, and using their free time to learn how to navigate our country's capital city. 

The sun was out everyday and students made the most of their time as tourists by visiting other attractions such as Te papa, old war bunkers up Mt Victoria and Weta workshop. The highlight for the group was an excellent tour of the Supreme Court, which was a new scheduled addition to the trip this year. Students also had plenty of time to relax in the afternoons and evenings with activities such as ice skating, bowling, lazer maze, the Fear Factory and of course shopping. A big thank you to Helen McKenzie and Nazila Khan for their support during the trip.

I look forward to 2021!
