Wellington goes on Safari for Fifth Summer Festival


Each year, the Summer Festival brings the entire Wellington community together in celebration of its biggest, most hotly anticipated whole-day event. Summer Festival 2019 followed the theme of ‘African Safari’ because, like the continent, we are a community made stronger by the cultural richness and diversity of our members. Wellington’s fifth Summer Festival was a landmark event. Five years on from its opening ceremony, number of admitted pupils at the College is now five times larger – from around 250 in 2014 to more than 1,250 today. With higher attendance, more activities, more market stalls and vendors, and more on-stage performances from both pupils and professionals than any previous year, Summer Festival 2019 was Wellington’s biggest to date.
