Mayor hosts local students



10 March 2013

Western Heights Primary School prefects spent time at Rotorua District Council with Mayor Kevin Winters this week.

Each year Mayor Winters invites primary and intermediate students to the council, where he chats with them about council activities and hosts a morning tea. The children also go on a tour of council businesses, such as Rotorua Museum, Aquatic Centre and Rotorua Library.

Assistant principal Craig McFadyen said it is so important for the children to see positive leaders within our community.

"The children took great pleasure in telling everyone about meeting the mayor, having a behind the scenes tour of the Museum and relaxing all afternoon at the Aquatic Centre."

Mr McFadyen said he would like to make it a regular annual event once prefects are announced to celebrate their selection.
