Subject: School Closure Wednesday 29 April

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Students
We have discovered a fault with our fire alarm system and currently do not have confidence in our fire alarms across the school. The school will be closed tomorrow to ensure the safety of students and staff. 
The Biology 200 field trip will continue as planned. Students will be brought back to school at approximately 1 pm and dismissed from the front gate.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and expect to rectify the problem tomorrow.
Yours sincerely
Sally Haughton


Ra Haka 2015

This year, around 30 Wellington East Girls’ College Students represented the school at the annual Ra Haka Day at ASB Arena. Ra Haka was created by the Kaahui Kaiako Maori o Te Whanganui a Tara (Wellington Maori Teachers' Association) in 2010. The objectives were to encourage whakawhanaungatanga, manaakitanga, ako, kaitiakitanga, rangatiratanga, and leadership amongst our students and colleges in the area of Wellington to Otaki. We have 32 secondary schools/wharekura in this region. In the past, the Wellington region has not been strong in representing haka from our region, so Ra Haka is an opportunity to share haka, waiata, stories and the history of this area.

East students off to Silicon Valley!

On Saturday 27 September, a group of around 40 East students and four staff will depart for Silicon Valley! The trip has been designed to give Digital Technologies students from East a first hand experience of what it would be like to work in the IT industry and includes visits to Google, Facebook and Microsoft. The trip has been two years in the making, and has received quite a lot of press - some of which can be accessed via the links below:

Great Start to the Season

Softball - National Champs!

The WEGC won the national final with an amazing score of 15-3 and five players and the coach were named in the tournament team, with Mereana being named tournament MVP. Congratulations girls! We are so proud of you!   See more photos here and read about them in the Dominion Post.

The team played six games in the round robin (Aranui High School, Hamilton Girls' High School, Maniototo Area School, Kaiapoi High School, Hilmorton High School, Dunstan High School) and were undefeated, having their closest game in a 4-2 win against Aranui.
