Fair Go Ad award

Fair Go Ad award

In 2018 for the first time, one of our Year 10 English classes entered the Fair Go ad award. Students had to make a 30 -second travel ad, showcasing their hometown. Our most successful ad was made by Olivia Horton, Madilyn Haar-Wilkinson, Mika Buchanan and Heidi White. The girls took an ironic approach, listing all the reasons you shouldn’t come to Invercargill, but ending with the punchline “Don’t come to Invercargill - we want to keep it to ourselves.”

Fair Go showed excerpts from two of our ads as teasers, but Olivia, Madilyn, Mika and Heidi actually made the final. Pictured with their certificate are Olivia, Madilyn and Mika. You can see the ad on YouTube if you search “Don’t Come to Invercargill.”
