Whare Wānanga Advancement Committee

Westlake Girls High School are building a “Whare Wānanga”. This project has been on the cards for a number of years, and now the building project is set to start in December this year. Te Whare Wānanga will be a learning and community space for everyone. Our goal is to create a Westlake Girls Whare Wānanga for not only the school, but to serve the wider community on the North Shore, and to contribute to the revitalisation of Te Reo and Tikanga Māori.

Full details of this incredible space will be communicated at a later date.

In the meantime, we are formulating a Whare Wānanga Advancement Committee to help drive the fundraising for the dressing of the building. We are seeking people with Project Management skills, Interpersonal skills, Marketing skills, Accounting abilities or Financial experience that have the time to volunteer their services for this exciting project that will benefit both our school and the wider community.

The next hui is on 21 June at 5pm for those that wish to join us and help drive this exciting project.  There is also the possibility of joining the meeting via zoom if you cannot make it in person. If you are interested in finding out more or would like to be involved, please contact Marie McKerrow via the following email: [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you there. Kia ora rawa atu.
