Important Things to Note – 16 September 2022

Senior Exams

Public Holiday

Westlake Girls will be shut on Monday 26 September to mark Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Day. Classes will resume for all students on Tuesday 27 September, which is a Day 2 on your daughter’s timetable.

Become a teacher!

Westlake Girls High School is seeking applications from quality candidates for our 2023 school-based training programme. If you have a degree, you can transition into a teaching career by completing your Graduate Diploma in Teaching onsite, while being mentored by specialist teachers. There is also $10,000 compensation available. Your coursework will be completed through the University of Waikato’s online programme. You can find out more information HERE.

Our inaugural Pasifika Showcase is being held from 7-9pm on Wednesday 28 September. We are very excited to bring you this event which will be a wonderful celebration of our Pasifika students and their cultures.
