View Road School was awash with red on July 1 as they celebrated Red Socks Day.
Each year the Sir Peter Blake Trust invites people to wear red socks to celebrate kiwi spirit and great leadership, and to remember a New Zealand hero – Sir Peter Blake. This year marked the 20th anniversary of Red Socks Day. Westpac Bank sponsors this event and schools are asked to identify a inspirational student leader.
View Road staff chose Briar Engelbrecht for the award this year, saying Briar is ‘an exceptional student who promotes our school values and is first to volunteer for any school events.’

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
