Nga mihi nui kia koutou katoa. Welcome back school for Term three.

Term three is now well underway, the students are engaged in their learning and enjoying their time at school. Our senior students now need to turn their undivided attention to NCEA as there are only about 11 school weeks before students take study leave, NCEA examinations commence on the 8th of November.

Black and White Day
Our very own Sarah Bateup head of Health and PE is currently in South Africa representing New Zealand in the World Korfball Championships. In support of the team Westland High School will be having a Black and White day today (Friday) where students and staff come to school dressed in B&W in support of the team and Miss Bateup….. GO New Zealand!

Shade systems are due onsite early August to start the foundation work for the covered courts. An exciting time for the community and school alike.
