The next ‘dux’ of Mt Aspiring College will receive a cheque for $2,500 to put towards further study, following an offer from Real Journeys to sponsor the award.
The company currently sponsors the Dux Award (the highest academic award given to a graduating student) at Fiordland College in Te Anau and Wakatipu High School in Queenstown. Following the purchase of Cardrona Alpine Resort from its Australian owners the sponsorship was extended to Mt Aspiring College in Wanaka.
Real Journeys has a long history of helping young people including providing assistance to outdoor education programmes as well as offering ‘Kids go Free’ (school-aged children up to aged 18) on selected services during school holidays.
The family owned tourism business was established over sixty years ago by tourism pioneers Les and Olive Hutchins. It operates the 102-year old steamship TSS Earnslaw and Walter Peak High Country Farm in Queenstown, world renowned cruises in Milford and Doubtful Sounds the Te Anau Glowworm Caves, day walks on the Milford Track and Stewart Island Experience (ferries, lodge and trips).
