Sparky is the new name gifted to our JNS penguin mascot thanks to Emily Luxford of Lakeview School! Emily was the winner of an awesome 32GB ipod touch for completing our 'naming of the penguin' competition which started at the beginning of term 2 and was announced on Friday the 12th of July 2013.
There were over 100 entries from children and young people living in the Wairarapa District and we were so amazed with the colourful and creative competition forms sent into us. It was not an easy task to choose a winner so I had to ask the JNS ambassadors from Masterton Primary, Fernridge School and Lakeview to help me out. A shortlist of names was made and a voting process put in place for the Ambassadors to choose their overall favorite!! Of the votes SPARKY was the winner!!!
JNS would like to say a big THANK YOU to our funders Masterton District Council, Trust House, Police Blue Light and National Neighbourhood Support for their contribution and support.
