Westlake’s International students held their first assembly for 2020 and it was a great time of reconnecting after lockdown. Our International Prefects (pictured above) introduced themselves and also introduced Lauranne Croot – our new International Director. She then spoke on the importance of friendships and being kind to each other. Upcoming school holiday trips and other activities were shared, including a visit to Hobbiton, a pizza night on 26 June and our after-school Stay and Cook classes.
The assembly also covered off academic information such as the NCEA credit changes for 2020, and planned wellbeing interviews to ensure students are on track with their studies after lockdown. Our principal, Jane Stanley, addressed the students, acknowledging the difficult past few months with Covid-19. A run down on winter uniform requirements, Homework Club and a fun quiz rounded out the assembly.
The next International assembly is planned for Wednesday 1 July.
