Funding 2023

We are raising and funding $450,000 in programmes at WHS in 2023.

The initiatives we fund annually are carefully selected to provide the greatest benefit to WHS and our students. Our funding supports students to reach their potential and supports inclusiveness and wellness.

Literacy & Numeracy Programme

Funding this programme enables WHS to double the number of numeracy classes in 2023 and  employ a full-time Literacy specialist. This will result in more students being supported with their Numeracy and Literacy needs and in turn will allow more students to access learning across the curriculum, and support more students to achieve their best qualification possible.


Awhi Support Fund 

Approx 1 in 10 students receive support from the Awhi Fund and the Awhi BYOD Fund. 

This ensures no students are disadvantaged by financial hardship - making a very real difference to financially disadvantaged families


Additional Teaching Resource

We fund two additional teachers for the school above the government staffing allowance which helps to reduce the average class size to 22.


Dux Scholarship

Peer Support STARS Programme

The STARS programme is a year-long peer mentoring programme that supports, motivates and positively reinforces Year 9 students and develops leadership in senior students.


Head Students Leadership

As part of their generous support of the WHS Foundation, Colliers support our Head Boy and Girl to attend an Outward Bound Course. 


Wellbeing Programme 

Wellbeing is increasingly an issue for NZ teenagers and schools. We’re funding the role and work of the Wellbeing Coordinator to continue the development and delivery of a whole-school wellbeing programme for students and staff.


School Vans

We are funding the purchase of two school vans across 2022 -23 supported by The Hugo Trust and Jack MacPherson. These vans will be used primarily for extra and cocurricular activities transport.

WHS's vision is to provide a 'great all-round education'. Integral to providing this are coaches, managers, teachers-in-charge and staff that make these activities possible.


Leadership External Speaker Series

The leadership external speaker series gives our senior student leaders an opportunity to engage and learn from a series of incredible guest speakers throughout the year.

These talks are filmed and shared on youtube.
