Student Welfare

Health Centre

During the Covid-19 lockdown, please phone Healthline (0800 358 5453 ) or your GP if you have any health concerns. You can also visit https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus for the latest updates on Covid-19.

 

The Health Centre is located in the main admin block and is staffed every day from 8.30am to 3.30pm by a registered nurse. Our role is to provide support and administer first aid to students or staff who become unwell or are injured during school hours. Please do not send your daughter to school if she is not well enough to function properly.

The Health Centre is open to students before school, at interval and at lunch time. If students become unwell during class time, they will be issued a health note by the class teacher so that they can visit the Health Centre. The nurses will assess the student’s medical needs and contact a caregiver or emergency contact if they need to be sent home. Very often students can be treated and sent back to class. Students must follow the correct procedures in the case of illness and they are not allowed to make their own arrangements by texting or calling parents or caregivers to collect them from school.

Please keep your contact details updated so that we can make contact should the need arise.

We also have four full time Counsellors at Westlake Girls, for more information please see the Learning Enhancement page.

Giving Day - 28 October 2020

We are very excited to announce the first-ever Westlake Girls High School Giving Day. The building of our new Event Centre is coming along nicely, however we are seeking the community's help to get us over the line with our funding shortfall. We are aiming to raise $20,000 by midnight on Wednesday 28 October for our Event Centre - which will become the hub of our school community. You don't need to wait until the 28th - we are happily accepting donations now!
