Students honoured at Academic Prize-Giving

We were delighted to celebrate the success of our 2021 top scholars this week, at a special prize-giving on Wednesday 23 March. A group of current Year 13s were joined by recipients from the 2021 Year 13 cohort.

It was a very special time, although we had to unfortunately restrict numbers due to Alert Level Red restrictions. However, we live-streamed the event to parents and students who had already left for university. You can view the event on the link below

Here is a link to the Livestream:

We want to congratulate all of our recipients, but especially our Dux Maggie Zhou (pictured below left) and Proxime Accessit to the Dux Bahar Khalil Nejad (pictured below right). Their achievements over their time at Westlake Girls were truly outstanding.
