Wakatipu’s kids were all right…


Wakatipu High pupils stepped out in style at their sizzling school ball and after-party.

There was no hint of problems at the Queenstown bashes last Saturday night – some parents had earlier voiced concerns about teen boozing at the annual events.

The glam ball was held at the Memorial Hall, followed by a trouble-free – albeit loud – after-party at a site in Frankton.

Wakatipu High principal Lyn Cooper is delighted with the way things panned out.

“I was proud of the mature way in which the students conducted themselves,” she says.

“It was an enjoyable evening and a great success. The students can’t stop talking about it.”
