Pegasus Bay School – $10,000 Prize-Winner

Cory Jane visits Pegasus Bay Junior School

Cory Jane delivered a major prize of $10,000 AIA and Sovereign sports grant to Pegasus Bay Junior School on Friday 30 November, 2018. The seven classes were amazed to hear that they collectively walked over 28,000km’s during the challenge.

Here’s what Principal Roger Hornblow had to say about what this prize means for them:

“WOW!  We are blown away to have won a $10,000 sports grant from AIA and Sovereign – thank you so much!  Our tamariki were thrilled to take part in the challenge, and really enjoyed seeing how many steps they’d done each day – they actually got quite competitive about it! We plan to spend the sports grant on outside sports equipment for the Junior Syndicate as they were the ones who took part in the challenge.  We have had a “wish list” for this area for some time now and it is wonderful to finally be able to purchase the equipment.”
