Pupils stand by as a Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopter prepares to unleash sweets on the grounds of Wakatipu High School in Frankton yesterday.
The special delivery, donated by the Remarkables Sweet Shop, was part of the school's Pride Week, held to coincide with Queenstown's Winter Pride festival.
Head girl Bianca Crichton said they wanted to celebrate Winter Pride while providing events targeted towards high school pupils.
''... it can be quite hard sometimes, so it's important to recognise that and provide as much support and inclusiveness as we can.''
Principal Steve Hall said the week was ''all about people feeling safe and feeling included, so the school's right behind this''.
