Wanganui school tour

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:32 pm on 21 February 2011

A football team tour with a difference will see 30 boys and girls from Wanganui Collegiate travel to Samoa later on this year to help rebuild one of the villages that was devastated by the tsunami of 2009. Fifteen people died when the tsunami hit the village of Satitoa, and most of the houses and buildings were washed away. David Van Zanten is one of the teachers who'll be travelling to Satitoa with the boys and girls 1st XI teams next winter.
