Classmate: In Sir Peter’s footsteps


Wakatipu High’s uniform will have a splash of colour added to it tomorrow. The school’s house leaders (from left) Max Gunn, Emma Milliken, Ariana Horsley, Emily Burns and Kate Gilbert are donning scarlet-coloured socks in support of national Red Socks Day and are encouraging schoolmates to do the same. Red socks became yachtsman Sir Peter Blake’s lucky charm during the 1995 America’s Cup and the Sir Peter Blake Trust organises the day – which happens during Leadership Week – to celebrate the memory of Blake and his legacy of leadership.
