Don’t stop me now (I’m having such a good time)

School’s back, and while some things are sadly a no-go for now, there are still lots of awesome opportunities. While we wait for our 30+ amazing clubs to be able to begin, these are well worth looking into.

Just Play

Try it, love it, play it! Participation in Sport is very important at Westlake Girls, and we encourage every student to stay active and be well. With 34 different sports, we offer the opportunity for everyone to come and have a go at some of the lesser known sports with JUST PLAY.  This is an ideal programme for Year 9 & 10 students who are looking for a new adventure. Try something new, develop your skills, improve your confidence, love it and then trial for interschool teams when you are ready.  

Just Play begins in Term 1 and runs throughout the year every Tuesday after school from 3.20pm – 4.30pm.  Softball, lacrosse, volleyball, table tennis, squash, ultimate frisbee, tag and futsal are just some of the sports offered in the short modules.  The coaching sessions are 4 weeks long and are taken by our Premier and Senior students of the various sports. This option caters for all ages and skills levels from beginners to competition trialists. 

If you are interested in having a go at one of the sports listed below then please complete the form on the school web site – under sport – Just play, or use the link below.
