Orange all over again
Here I am again, in front of a good thousand of Wellington's intrepid school patrollers for another Orange Day event. Kenny King is in there too and it was our pleasure, once again, to host and entertain all the amazing kids who keep their peers safe crossing the croad every day.
The stats are pretty amazing - these 1000 Year 6 pupils take care of some 30,000 primary school age kids (and a lot of parents) every school day twice a day largely without incident. These are 10 year olds! And they do it in rain or shine. As a former school patroller myself its always fun to salute these kids who do such a great job.
