Here’s to Westlake’s mums

We hope you all have a lovely Mother’s Day on Sunday. To celebrate, some of our Head Prefects tell us the thing they love most about their mum.

Head Prefect: Kaia Tupu-South with Julie Tupu-South


What I love most about her is that she’s my best friend and my mother rolled into one, her love is unconditional and she always finds a way to make me laugh in a serious situation.





Deputy Head Prefect: Darcy Frank with Jackie Frank



I would have to say the thing I love most about her is how much she manages to make me laugh, even if I’m feeling down.





Akoranga House Captain: Lara Remo with Jing Remo

It’s hard for me to encapsulate what I love most dearly about her in a single sentence, but if I had to, it would have to do with her astounding strength and perseverance in everything she does and goes through. Love you, Mum.



Hauraki House Captain: Maddison Gerbes with Corina Gerbes (and Renee – a former Hauraki Prefect) 


“I love my mum! She’s is a mana wahine in my eyes, always providing for our family. Happy Mother’s Day to my mum and all the step mums, mums, and mothers to be! You are all appreciated! – LOVE MADDI X




Onewa House Captain: Anya Powell with Melissa Powell



The thing I love most about my mum is that she is always up for an adventure!






Pupuke House Captain: Beth Naylor with Jo Naylor

I love her because she is so caring and compassionate – I am proud to call her my mum.









Wairau House Captain: Sania Jafarian with Mitra Nourbakhsh

Thank you, Maman, for being the brightest source of strength and compassion in my life. I love you more than you know.
