Westlake Students Participate in Life-giving Donation

This month senior students participated in what is to become our annual blood drive.

The day was a huge success with a packed schedule of donations from students and staff.

The New Zealand Blood Service is a not-for-profit Crown entity who are the only organisation in New Zealand that collect, process, test, store and distribute blood and blood products across Aotearoa.

They rely on voluntary and non-remunerated donations to enable a constant supply of precious blood products to hospitals and health services across the motu that save thousands of lives each year.

A heartfelt thank you to our students and staff who selflessly donated to this wider community cause and to the New Zealand Blood Service registered nurses, phlebotomist and admin staff and the people involved in setting up and making the day such a valuable day of giving.

Senior students over the age of 16 years will have an opportunity to volunteer to give a life-saving donation again here at school next year.
