Westlake Girls is one of New Zealand’s leading sporting schools, with a strong commitment to sporting excellence. All our students are encouraged to participate in a school sport during their time at Westlake. We have over 30 sports ranging from Athletics to Yachting with opportunities both for the committed athlete to develop their potential, and also for others to play at social or beginner level. Engagement in sport enables students to experience the health benefits that sport offers while building a strong team and school spirit which involves staff, students and the extended Westlake community. In addition to providing opportunities to develop personal and leadership skills, sport also fosters social interaction and a sense of fair play.
The success of sport at Westlake Girls relies on volunteers working away in the background to promote individuals and teams. Each sport has a school coordinator who is supported by staff, parents, caregivers and senior students for coaches and managers. Sport at Westlake Girls is based on a user-pay system. The Sports Department located in P9 provides information on all sporting activities and is open during school hours for queries or alternatively contact: email@example.com.
