Colours Evening speakers inspire Hillmorton students

Our recent Colours Evening celebrated the 37 senior students who had gained Academic, Arts and Culture, Service and Sports Gold Colours this year, making us all very proud.

Our two speakers, John Pauwels and Ben King are Air New Zealand pilots and inspired us all with a glimpse into their lives as pilots.

John is a former Hillmorton student, and as he nears retirement, has set up the Pauwels Flying Scholarship, offering a $10,000 head start for a Hillmorton High School student, each year, to study at the International Aviation Academy of New Zealand.

Applications open on the first day of Term One and close on the last school day of February, and are open to all Hillmorton High School senior students from Year 11 to Year 13.

We thank John for this incredible opportunity he is offering.
