Wakatipu Stars Programme Overview
Stars is a national programme operated by the Graeme Dingle Foundation and is made up of four key components spread across the year, which the Peer Mentors, selected Year 12 and 13 Students from each house undertake with their Year 9 Mentees from their respective houses. Wakatipu High is the only school to deliver the Stars Programme in the Lower South Island.
