Around 70 guests, guests including dignitaries Sir Noel Robinson and Honourable Andrew Bayly, Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, were invited to celebrate a significant milestone for Waka Pacific Trust this week. 

A morning tea was held to mark 100,000 students and youth engaged in high quality educational events through the Due Drop Events Centre and Vector Wero Whitewater Park in 2023.

David Comery, ceo Waka Pacific Trust presented an overview of the schools’ programme which saw the 100,000 students target reached two years earlier than planned. The drive is to continue to serve 100,000+ young people through events, the creative arts, Whitewater and outdoor activities, leadership development and sport every year.

The trust invested $1.6 million last year to accomplish this feat.

The Waka Pacific Climb, a 17 metre high galvanised steel structure comprising of 78 climbing elements which will complement current attractions at Vector Wero Whitewater Park, is scheduled to open late 2024, early 2025.

“These notable achievements are accomplished through the profits derived from the successful operation of the Due Drop Events Centre which goes from strength to strength,” says Comery.
