The brick permanently displays your name, alongside others, on the Westlakers Wall in the 2016 gymnasium.

$100 Club

The school continues to provide a vast range of learning opportunities and experiences for its students. However, there is usually a financial commitment required from students for them to participate.

One of the Westlakers Committee’s most satisfying roles is to provide financial assistance to deserving students whose current situation might otherwise exclude them from taking part in school activities that will help to progress their talents. 

During 2018 the Westlakers Committee provided financial support to 12 students, allowing them to attend national tournaments, travel on overseas school trips and participate in outdoor education activities. 

The $100 Club is an integral part of our regular fundraising programme and one that makes a genuine difference to the lives of Westlake Boys students. This initiative while helping our current students achieve and see success, also allows our Westlaker community to ‘pay it forward’.


Gateway

The school runs a Gateway programme to help Year 13 students who are interested in pursuing a career in the trades. Local businesses offer apprenticeships which range from a day to several weeks, providing valuable real-world work experience. If you would like to know more about getting involved in the Gateway programme, please contact Tara Heta: theta@westlake.school.nz.

Here’s an example of a Gateway placement, offered by Westlaker Gavin Bindon.
