Te Arataki Committee
This student committee is still very much in its infancy, but we have exciting plans for 2022 as we look to develop and grow this part of our student leadership initiative.
The goals of the committee are:
Goal 1: To develop a sense of service by offering students the opportunity to contribute to the school and the wider community.
Goal 2: To empower strong leaders through the development of a strong extra-curricular programme that offers a broad range of leadership opportunities.
Goal 3: To develop active citizenship through an extra-curricular programme that promotes participation, social responsibility and experiences beyond Wesley.
It is intended that this committee will bring structure to, and promote involvement in, the amazing opportunities that are available to our students thus ensuring that all our students develop as active citizens with a critical consciousness.
Kaitiakitanga – Environmental Service Days
As part of our Duke of Edinburgh programme at Wesley College, we are running a programme of environmental service days with our Year 10 students. Working alongside a local landcare group, Whakaupoko Landcare, students are spending at least one day each term in their local environment helping to clear invasive plant species, plant native trees and shrubs and create trails for the local community to use.
