WESTLAKERS

- Westlakers are past pupils, staff and extended family of Westlake Boys High School.


 

WHO ARE WE?

The Westlakers organisation is a registered Charitable Trust. The Westlakers Committee generally meets once a month, and the current committee members are:

  • President, Jeff Knight (1984 – 1988) 
  • Anson Davies (1986 – 1990)
  • Simon Farland (1986 – 1990)
  • Dale Gooding (1995 – 1999)
  • Jono Houzet (2011 – 2014)
  • Blair Moore (1978 – 1981)
  • Jimmy O’Brien (1977 – 1981)
  • John Penberthy (1995 – 1999)

WHAT DO WE DO?

Over the years Westlakers has established an active calendar of events for the School's Alumni (including the very successful 50th Jubilee celebrations held in 2012). 

Westlakers has funded a significant number of scholarships for deserving students at the school and donated funds towards major school projects like the Gymnasium and  Archway sculpture.

Last year, we started a project to renovate the Sports Pavilion, with the goal being that this iconic venue becomes the home of Westlakers and many of our events. 

WHY DO WE DO IT?

Our purpose is to help Westlakers reconnect and stay connected and with the school. Our goals are to:

Provide opportunities for Westlakers to give back to the school 

Contact as many Westlakers as possible and help them connect

Communicate with Westlakers regularly with news about the school

Organise events and reunions at which Westlakers can reconnect and reminisce about their time at school.
