Warmest Pacific Greetings
The Pasifika Parents Komiti (PPK) welcomes you as a member of the Westlake “aiga/anau/famili” to support Pasifika students, their families and the school. We aim to promote the Westlake Way, improve communication between the school and our Pasifika community and assist raising Pasifika Academic Achievement initiatives. Our primary focus is Academic Achievement and how to support students and families balance this with other commitments and responsibilities such as sports, religious celebrations, leadership, school events, family and cultural events.
The biggest contribution that we Pasifika Parents can make is to simply get involved in our son’s education, let’s share our stories and knowledge and unique pacific cultures to navigate the academic pathways together.
Every Wednesday – 7.30am-8.30am – The Taro Patch held in the Sports Pavilion
Fortnightly on Thursday – 8.45am-9am – Pasifika Student Assembly
Pasifika Partnership Agreement
The Taro Patch is our ‘after school/before school club’ where our Pasifika boys can come together as one on a weekly basis to celebrate and share their unique Pasifika cultures as well as do homework, get subject help from teachers and other Westlake achievers, meet other Pasifika achievers who are keen to pass on their knowledge, values and skills in business, sports, music, the arts as well as university and career choices.
