New Vans for The Schools

May 09, 2013 at 7:53 AM

At the start of Term 2, the Boys’ and Girls’ Schools were delighted to receive the keys of two new Hyundai I Move minivans from Wayne Leach of Winger Motors Ltd and representatives of the Parents and Friends from both campuses. This was made possible through the generosity and support of Winger, our Cornerstone Supporter for the two Saint Kentigern primary schools, and funds raised by our actively supportive parents. Winger has sponsored one of the vans for three years and the Parents and Friends Association has purchased the other from the significant funds they raised last year from the sale of the Saint Kentigern Cookbook - ‘Our Family Flavours’.

The mini vans are 12 seaters and will be used by both the Boys’ and Girls’ Schools to transport our students to their various events, activities and sporting fixtures in and around Auckland. This will add another dimension to the opportunities we can provide to our students.

Winger Motors Ltd has long been a great supporter of firstly the Boys’ School and now the Girls’ School too. As well as sponsorship of the new minivan, Wayne Leach has been active in his support of the Boys’ School Soap Box Derby entry since its inception. This year, the sponsorship had a value of $3,766. With the Girls’ School taking up the Soap Box challenge, this generosity may also be extended to their car and entry next year.

Wayne has also made a further generous agreement, offering a rebate of $500 incl GST from sales of vehicles sold by Winger Motors Ltd to family, friends, Old Collegians or any others who identify themselves as connected to the Schools at the time of purchase. (With a maximum annual rebate of $12,500 incl GST.)

We are very grateful for the on-going generosity and support from both Winger Motors Ltd and the Parents and Friends Association; we really appreciate it - thank you! We're now looking forward to making use of our new vehicles!
