2020 Head students

Rebecca Davis – Head Girl

Tena koutou katoa

 Ko Taranaki tōku maunga

 Ko Totaranui toku awa

 Ko Te Ati Awa toku iwi

 Ko Waikawa toku marae

 Ko Rebecca toku ingoa

 Nō reira, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena tatou, katoa

I’m Rebecca Davis and I take great pleasure in thanking Westland High School students, whanau and teachers for entrusting me with the honourable role of  Westland High Schools head girl for 2020.

Being a head student has always been a goal of mine since I first started at Westland High School in 2014. This is because I thoroughly enjoy working alongside others to create an ideal environment in which all students have the ability to succeed both academically and within leadership or sporting roles.  I believe 2020’s group of head students is capable enough to actively engage with the student body to maximise student opportunities and student involvement which will implement Westland High Schools values, manaakitanga, whanaungatanga, rangatiratanga and kaitiakitanga.

I am excited to work alongside Joshua, Gavin and Maddison as well as the rest of the Runanga Tauira to achieve the goals we have set.  We are fortunate to have great challenges and great opportunities. I look forward to seeing where Westland High School will take me in 2020.

Joshua Nolan – Head Boy

My aim for this year at westland high is to make the foundations for good healthy relationships/bonds between students through fun engaging activities and events through the year. I would implement our values (Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga, Rangatiratanga and Kaitiakitanga) more in the school environment to encourage better attitudes towards learning, to create a more focussed and enjoyable learning process for students in and out of class. I’m confident these goals will be achieved because we have a tight knit and strong group of head students, I’m looking forward to working along side each other.

Maddison Fraser-Golding – Deputy Head Girl

Kia ora koutou katoa

Ko Aoraki te mauka araki 

Ko Tūtoko te mauka tipuna

Ko Makaawhio te awa tapu

Ko Uruao te waka 

Ko Rākaihautu te takata

Ko Kāti Māhaki ki Makaawhio te hapū

Ko Kāti Māmoe mea ko Kai Tahu ka iwi

Ko te Tauraka waka ā Māui te marae 

No Mahitahi ahua

Ko Maddison Rose Fraser Golding toku ingoa

Kia ora my name is Maddison Fraser Golding and I am honoured to be 2020’s Deputy head girl as well as Pumanawa (Māori head) of Westland High School for 2020.

My goal for this year at Westland high school is to help support our head students and to include more maoritanga within the school and community. I would like to create inviting spaces for rangatahi wanting to learn more about Māori, whether that be just learning simple words or helping them with their mihi. I think by creating these spaces in the school students can connect with different year groups and different levels in Te ao Māori. By giving students this opportunity it will implement the school values, Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga, Rangatiratanga and Kaitiakitanga.

I am looking forward to what 2020 has to bring and working alongside Rebecca, Joshua ,Gavin and the Rūnanga Tauira in making 2020 a great year.

Gavin Lyall – Deputy Head Boy

Hello everyone, I’m Gavin Lyall, and I am more than grateful to have been appointed as the deputy head boy for 2020

I haven’t always wanted to have a leadership role but after spending six years at this school learning and growing, I decided it was time to give back to the school that has shaped me into who I am today. Taking on this leadership role is important to me because I see it as an opportunity to help the school, get some of my views across, and give a voice to people who don’t have one in the school.

I take pride in being a leader to others and someone to look up to for younger students. I strive to help improve the environment in our school and make it a better place for everyone.

I am looking forward to reaching and overcoming the challenges we will encounter this year, as I have great faith and enthusiasm in the other head students Rebecca, Josh, Maddison, and the other members of the Runanga Tauira to actively listen to each other and work together to reinforce our school values, manaakitanga, whanaungatanga, rangatiratanga and kaitiakitanga.
