Westlake Boys PTA
Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) provides a link between the wider Westlake community and the school

We facilitate opportunities for parents and caregivers to get to know each other better and to be involved at our school. Our goals are to organise functions which are fun, interesting, and appealing to parents, as well as to provide a voice for parents.

The PTA raises funds to support projects which benefit the school community and the students. Most of our funds are earned through running the Second Hand Uniform Shop. The PTA has proudly supported many projects over the years including new classroom furniture, upgrades to technology classrooms and a new school minivan.

We work in co-operation with and provide assistance to the school where we can. We are a volunteer, non-profit organisation, a registered charity and operate under the umbrella of the NZPTA. Joining us is a great opportunity to get to know more about the school, to meet new people and form friendships. You can be involved as little or as much as you wish and we welcome parents, caregivers and teachers to come to our meetings and events.

Come and join us for our 2024 meetings at 7pm in the staffroom - we'd love to have you involved!

PTA Activities

PTA Activities
There are a number of school events at which the PTA provides assistance. These are always fun, and a good opportunity to meet new people.

Open Evening (incoming students and families) 
PTA provides refreshments at the Annual Open Evening. This is a good opportunity for parents to network and ask questions about the school in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

Meet the Prefects Evening 
Meet the Prefects is a much-anticipated evening hosted by the PTA each year.  The evening gives younger students interested in becoming a prefect the opportunity to meet the senior prefects in a more social setting and hear about their Westlake journeys. An inspirational night enjoyed by all who attend.­­

Grandparents’ Day Morning Tea 
Grandparents’ Day is a particularly popular community event and we look forward to another opportunity to welcome the grandparents this year.

Staff Morning Tea 
Close to the end of each school year, the PTA hosts a morning tea to recognise the important contribution of all staff. This is always enthusiastically received. As well as providing delicious treats, we also present each member of staff with a small gift (donated by parents). For the past three years, we have managed to present gifts to the entire 200+ support staff and teachers.

Westlake Boys Graduation Dinner setup 
PTA members have the privilege of assisting in the setup of this formal dinner held in the Auditorium for each years Westlake leavers and their parents.  

End of Year PTA Dinner
The end of year PTA Dinner, hosted at our favourite spot, has become a valuable PTA tradition. It is a great way to celebrate the year’s successes!
