William Pike

During our school assembly on Monday 3 July, William Pike, our guest speaker, inspired students to "believe they can do it".


William was one of a couple of trampers who were caught out on Mt Ruapehu when it erupted in September 2007.

In Every Day’s a Good Day, William not only shares his story of beating the odds on Mt. Ruapehu but also writes about his active childhood and teen years, when his love for adventure, sport and the outdoors was fostered by family, friends and teachers. Even after losing his lower leg, William continues to find joy and inspiration from tramping, mountaineering, cycling, kayaking and diving. For William, every day really is a good day.

We have signed copies of William's autobiography for sale in the school office for $30 each.
