Our 2021 Year 9 cohort was welcomed to Westlake on Friday 13 November.
The Year 8 students, from a variety of schools around Auckland, gathered on the covered courts for a welcome by Principal Jane Stanley and other senior staff. They were then broken into groups of 10 and assigned a current Year 9 Ambassador to show them around and introduce them to Westlake. The current Year 9 students spent an afternoon training to be leaders for Orientation, and were professional and polished on the day.
Along with a testing session, the students also visited the library, tech rooms and classrooms, and checked out the sporting facilities. There were fun activities and the chance to make new friends.
We’re looking forward to welcoming them back at the start of 2021.
