The Polar Plunge has been the Health Trust’s iconic event for more than 20 years. Mulberry Grove, Kaitoke, and Okiwi primary schools support this event and children and adults alike over the years have plunged for ‘Health’ in June most years. In the past the Health Trust prioritised the purchase of a specific piece of equipment for the Polar Plunge goal. From 2023 onwards the funds raised will be specifically tagged for continuing the Rural Women NZ – Awana Branch Diamond Jubilee Scholarship. This one thousand dollar award is granted to a Year 8 pupil for their secondary education. The three island Primary School Principals chose the recipient prior to the end of the school year.
