Wairarapa student sails with Students on Ice to Antarctica!

This summer Mary Williams, from Wairarapa College in Masterton, New Zealand, was the inaugural recipient of an Ice Navigators scholarship. This scholarship was set up to send a local student from Grant’s hometown high school to Antarctica with the award winning environmental education organization Students on Ice.


Students on Ice

We received some amazing help from the Wairarapa community, allowing Mary to sail south with us aboard MV Ushuaia in Janurary 2012 for the adventure of a lifetime!

Special thanks to the Masterton Trustlands Trust for supporting this scholarship, Swazi clothing for keeping Mary warm on the ice and everyone else who contributed to the fundraising effort!
