Westlake Girls High School Sport

Sport plays an important part of a student’s time at Westlake Girls High School. The opportunities are plentiful for those that choose to represent the school in the sporting arena. Established in 1962, Westlake Girls High School is one of New Zealand’s leading sporting schools with a long-standing tradition and strong commitment to sporting excellence.

There are a number of different sports on offer ranging from Athletics to Yachting for the committed athlete to the social or for the beginner, there is a sport that will meet an individual’s needs. Participating in sport enables students to experience the special benefits that it offers while building a strong school spirit with staff, students and Westlake Community involved together. The aim is to foster an active participation, provide opportunities to develop personal and leadership skills, 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 coordinator and relies on the support of staff, parents, caregivers and senior students for coaches and managers. Sport at Westlake Girls is user-pays. The Sports Department located in P9 provides information on all sporting activities and is open during school hours for queries.
