Pupils at Waikawa School have been surprised with a new pair of shoes as the winners of a competition. The school is one of two Marlborough schools participating in the Zespri Young and Healthy Virtual Adventure, which takes 22,000 Kiwi tamariki on a virtual trip around the globe, instilling healthy habits along the way and learning from sporting heroes such as AlI Black Ardie Savea and Silver Fern Ameliaranne Ekenasio. The adventure crew made a surprise visit to the participating pupils at Waikawa School to announce they had won the Show Us Your Moves challenge, and each pupil received a pair of new Asics shoes, and after some drills in their new shoes, munched on some Zespri kiwifruit. The adventure began on October 19 and runs until November 24.
