It’s time to renew student lockers for 2021

Locker renewal is now available for 2021.  If your daughter would like to retain the locker she currently has, this needs to be done by 30 November 2020.  The price remains the same at $60 per year.  Payments can be made through the Website Payments Page:

https://www.westlakegirls.school.nz/payments/lockers/

Or at the Payments Office.  Lockers not renewed by 30 November 2020 will be marked as available for 2021 on 1 December 2020 and will be available to all students. If you would like to move lockers from your current place – please come to see us at the Payments Office from 1 December 2020.

School Year Book 2020

Our 2020 School Year Book will be available next week. We’ll send you an email to confirm when your daughter will be able to collect one from the Payments Office, showing her student ID. Copies of the 128-page book are available free of charge to every student who has paid the school donation this year. If you haven’t paid the donation, you can purchase a copy for $20 from the Payments Office. Again, students just need to bring along their school ID, along with cash or card.
