At Western Springs College our core focus is producing graduates who gain the academic qualifications required for competitive access to sought-after tertiary level courses. We have also reaffirmed our identity as a school distinctive for nurturing individuality, creativity and critical thinking. Accordingly, we offer an increasingly personalised education that recognises and caters for the unique individual interests and strengths of each student and opens up a range of challenging pathways beyond school.
Enrolments begin after Open Week in April. Parents/caregivers who live in-zone should download an enrolment package then complete and return to the school office. Enrolments are governed by the Ministry of Education enrolment scheme.
The Board of Trustees has decided to accept no out-of-zone enrolments for 2018.
The School Donation
Parents/caregivers are asked to make an annual donation. These funds help provide for educational, cultural, social activities and health services not covered by government funding.
School donations make a vital contribution to the running of our school. They provide, but are not limited to, these services and programmes:
- a comprehensive sports academy programme;
- school wide performing arts programme;
- comprehensive student health services;
- development of our IT programme.
We really appreciate the payment of your donations:
Currently the 2018 school donation is: $500 for one student or $600 for a family.
You can pay by bank deposit, ASB 12-3020-0333033-00, at the front office or through the WSC Parental Portal here
