Welcome to WEST

WEST Community Hub Building is NOW CLOSED and all courses and meetings are cancelled until further notice

As the Government has declared New Zealand to be at COVID19 Level 3 today, the WEST Community Hub at 9 Henderson Valley Rd will now be CLOSED to ALL students, tutors, room users, counsellors and anyone else who uses the facility.

WEST has now cancelled ALL classes. This will be disappointing for some who are halfway through a course, or who have booked for an upcoming class. However we are committed to following Government advice to close all non-essential businesses until advised otherwise. Over the next week we will be updating our website at www.west.org.nz  and on our Facebook pages – https://www.facebook.com/WESTDressed  and https://www.facebook.com/WESTWorkReady/  about proposed online classes. Please check in to these websites and pages for more information about how you can join an online course when they are available.


WEST Dressed – our pre-loved plus sized (size 14+) clothing op shop at 9 Henderson Valley Rd is CLOSED

Te Puna Market which takes place on Saturday mornings at the Falls Restaurant Carpark – update to be made shortly via the Te Puna Market Facebook page

Stay well and we look forward to engaging with you all over the coming weeks and months via our website, Facebook pages, email or phone.

Feedback from our customers

“I attended the cooking class. John [the tutor] is a character and the class is full of laughs and great information. My house smells delicious… can’t wait till tonight and get the comments from family. Thank you WEST for another amazing workshop… can’t wait to see what we are up to next week.”

“I will use the skills I have learnt to improve the social media marketing for my family business. [The tutor] is a very personable, relaxed tutor. She has really good ideas for any kind of business to use for marketing. I really enjoyed this course.”
