Save the date in your diaries for our annual Mother Son Breakfast which will be held on Thursday 11th May.
Tickets will be available online soon.
This annual event offers mums and sons an opportunity to spend some quality time together while enjoying a presentation from Westlaker Bruce Pilbrow. Bruce is the former CEO of The Parenting Place and has recently taken up a new role as General Manager of Marketing & Engagement for Wolrd Vision NZ.
All students and their mothers, grandmothers and/or female role models are invited to attend.
This week focuses on celebrating the broad range of cultures of our school community. Students have the opportunity to share their own culture through food and performances. There are many activities and displays in assemblies and at lunchtimes, including calligraphy, traditional tea ceremonies, fan dances, Tae Kwon Do and international food stalls. Parents are welcome to come along at lunchtimes and watch performances. Make sure your sons find out about what is happening throughout the week.
The Westlake Proms Concert is held during Culture Week on Wednesday 12th April at 7.00pm in the Auditorium. This annual concert is a treat for all music-lovers. The Westlake Symphony Orchestra and Choralation Choir perform a range of classical repertoire and a traditional program of British ‘favourites’.
The first appointment on the Westlake music calendar is the Equinox Concert at 7pm on Wednesday 22 March.
This is a very informal, FREE event, at which the WBHS music ensembles will play a selection from their 2017 repertoire.
It is always impressive to hear how much progress they have made in the short few weeks that they have been rehearsing in Term One.
All members of the Westlake community are welcome.
Come along and see a new version of the haka performed with Westlake spirit and passion as the school houses try to outdo each other to become the winner for 2017.
All of the action will be on the main field from 1.30-3.10pm.
Parking will be at a premium in the local surrounding roads so allow plenty of time to park and walk to school.
Please adhere to any parking restrictions.
May the best house win!
