The Westlake Song & Haka


The Westlake Song
The wind at our backs
We pull for the line
Each stroke is a triumph
For brave heart and clear mind.
Fair play is our goal
Self knowledge the prize
We move ahead together
With victory in our eyes.It’s with pride in our hearts we sing Westlake
Virtute Experiamur!
For a mind filled with honour and learning
Is a mind ill may never deter.
It’s with pride in our hearts we sing Westlake
Virtute Experiamur!
For a mind filled with honour and learning
Is a mind ill may never deter.
Virtute Experiamur!
Te hau ki muri
Huhuti kawa
Whaia tātou te rawe
Ngākau nui whakaaro pai.
Honore te tika
Mātauranga te hua
Piki tātou ki mua
Taumata ūmanga waiatatia Manawa ‘roto hau’
Kia kaha te ora!
Hinengaro hōnore mātauranga
Kaua rawatia e taka ai.
Waiatatia Manawa ‘roto hau’
Kia kaha te ora!
Hinengaro honore mātauranga
Kaua rawatia e taka ai.
Kia kaha te ora!
