Welcome from the Board Chair for Western Springs College - Ngā Puna o Waiōrea

Kia ora koutou,

Welcome to  Western Springs College – Ngā Puna o Waiōrea.  

2022 has proved to be another interesting year, but as always the students have been remarkably resilient and it is wonderful to have the students back on campus.

We do still encourage students to wear masks as we continue to actively keep ourselves safe against Covid. We are fortunate to mainly occupy new buildings with modern ventilation systems that include CO2 monitors. In the large Ken Havill Centre for Learning, fresh air can be actively drawn in through the windows, exiting up through the top of the void via large extractor fans.

We value the strong community that embraces our school and encourage you all to take advantage of opportunities to connect with the school community. The Parent Action Group is one of those opportunities and I encourage you to sign up for their updates. I also look forward to meeting many of you at school events.

Ngā mihi nui
