Westlake Winners

Model United Nations Teams win awards

Westlake Girls had two teams competing in the Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) held in the middle of May at Auckland Girls Grammar School. More than 40 schools from as far north as Kerikeri entered teams to debate current world issues and present resolutions.

Teams were allocated a country of the world to represent, with Westlake teams representing Rwanda and Greece. The Rwanda team of Alyssa Wilson, Yasmin Clements-Levi and Hannah Clarke (all Year 12) took way the award for The Best Team Overall.

The second Westlake team of Shaila Bhabha (year 13), Izzy Hillman (Year 13) and Emma Ormsby (Year 12) won the award for The Best Country Costume. Westlake Girls was also asked to supply the Press team which had to produce daily reports of the events and a summary newspaper of the event. The 13 students involved produced the newspaper in record time.


Wednesday March 29th - PPTA Industrial Action

The PPTA have advised that Wednesday March 29th has been scheduled as a second day for industrial action for secondary school teachers. With a number of staff away, we will be unable to open for instruction on Wednesday 29th March. We understand that this is short notice and appreciate the difficulties this will place on you. However, it is vital that we support our teachers in their claim to show the government how important they are to us.
