In 2013 Westlake Girls introduced a house system and every student belongs to one of five houses named after significant local areas. The house colours – black, gold, red, blue and green – reflect the Olympic rings to encourage the pursuit of excellence and relate to the meaning of each of the house names. The house system offers leadership opportunities for senior students and allows all students to feel connected to a smaller community within the school. Throughout the year the houses compete in a variety of events and select a house charity to support.

Each House has a House Captain, Academic Prefect, Arts Prefect, Cultural Prefect, Environmental Prefect, International Student Prefect, Service Prefect, Sport & Wellbeing Prefect,  and Junior House Prefects overseeing the Junior School. In addition, our Head Prefect and Deputy Head Prefect are highly visible leaders and role models for their fellow students at assemblies and school events. They also fulfil responsibilities in the wider school community.

Prefect Roles


Ngā mihi nui kia koutou katoa,

My name is Izzy Sheild and I am beyond humbled to be named Head Prefect of Westlake Girls High School for 2018. It is such an exciting opportunity and a great honour to lead such a prestigious school alongside Deputy Head Prefect, Janice Lim. I cannot think of a more rewarding way to conclude my final year of high school.

I have an honest desire to wholeheartedly give back to the generosity Westlake has afforded me over the last four years and aim to achieve this by encouraging and supporting my fellow students to get involved in the abundant opportunities here at Westlake. Our areas of expertise are far reaching and include the arts, sports, culture and academia, all of which have the ability to cater for the interests of each student in order for them to pursue their own personal excellence.

I genuinely care about every student, and as Head Prefect my personal goal is to make each student feel that they belong and are supported in a positive way in order to have the best experience possible here at Westlake Girls. In conjunction with this, I hope to further strengthen our school spirit and pride and embrace the sense of sisterhood established within our school. I truly intend to be an inspiring and empowering role model for my peers, and will give my absolute all to this role.

Hei kona mai i roto i ngā mihi.
