Antarctica trip inspires Lana

Lana Kiddie-Vai (right) says she is ‘super excited, but at the same scared and anxious’ about heading off to Antarctica next month.  The Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate (SEHC) Year 13 student, along with SEHC student Mele Fetu'u, will join ten other young leaders aged 18-30 years.

Lana’s preparations have included working hard to raise $500 as her contribution to the trip expanses, as well as team building exercises, kayaking lessons and sea kayaking around the inner Waitemata Harbour.

At first the media attention seemed daunting, but after interviews, including Niu FM radio and Newshub TV, Lana is handling the media with aplomb.

This opportunity to build their leadership skills reflects the vision in establishing Hillary House at Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate, to offer wider opportunities for young people to become explorers and give back to others.

The Hillary House Leadership Centre Trust extends our very best wishes for a most inspirational experience.
