The Westlake Boys Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning will enhance student outcomes by providing innovative and outstanding opportunities for excellence in Teaching and Learning.
The Westlake Boys Centre is a dedicated, inclusive space that provides our community with a range of evidence-based programmes and opportunities for excellence and equity in boys’ education. We are a supportive and caring environment that connects and engages in positive, holistic, and motivated learning.
Here at Westlake Boys High School, teaching and learning is at the centre of all we do. We strongly believe that if we support our teachers to be the best they can be in the classroom, our students will grow to be the best they can be too.
The Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning was established in 2019 to be at the core of our support and professional development for our teachers, whether they are new to the profession, have decades of experience, and everything in between. By acknowledging that we can always be better and striving to be the best that we can in the classroom, the teaching staff are putting boys’ education at the forefront of everything that they do.
Our philosophy and values are underpinned by research and evidence-based practice. In doing so, the centre continues to make connections with other schools within New Zealand and internationally. In an ever-changing educational landscape, it is important to be at front of the charge in innovation and adaption of ideas and pedagogy in our own unique context of Westlake Boys High School.
