I have been a student at Westlake for a year and I have seen her three times in her golf cart and the first time she spoke to us was at the prize giving at the end of the year. The other time I saw her was at opening night and her speech was painful and droning. She went on for twenty minutes about public transport. We love you Mrs Gernhoefer :)

Golf-carts and stuck in her chair stories are getting OLD. She is a fantastic Principal and has stood the test of time. Westlake has been blessed to have her. Well done Gerny!

Ms Gernhoefer was my principal 30 something years ago and I am so pleased to see her still there. She was a litlle bit frightening to start with but as far as I am concerned her main job in life was l

I think open-mindedness would help her be able to work with others and take on board new opinions to help improve the school.

Obviously can run a school well as we are one of the top all girls schools in the country, people just dont like her cause she is old and never comes out to see students which is her only downfall

Put it this way, she taught my 50 something year old aunty history when she was at high school, I think her time to shine is almost over. Although never have had a problem with her (:

Mrs Gernhoeffer is amazingly passionate about education and aiming to motivate and inspire students to do their best in everything they do. Genuinely kind and lovely she is an awesome principal! Perhaps a little more interaction with students would benefit her popularity, but she is a very busy lady

She is actually really nice. I like her as a person but not as a principal. Also her speeches are really boring!

Mrs G is an amazing principal, despite what people have said about her. The support that she gives the teachers and the students and her vision for the school is amazing. People will not realise how good the education that they are recieving from a public school is until they leave. Thanks Mrs G.

I think she does a really good job and she's very organized. I think she must be busy running such a big school and I don't blame her if she doesn't get around the school to interact with the students much.

she's nice. But i just can't stand her supporting musical and sport department soooo much. Afterall, it's an academic school!And what was that only ofering 4 GCSEcourses! We don't need much hist nor geo, why there're no science courses? Geez,it's just a waste of time and money to do BOTH GCSEandNCEA

She always let us stand up and stretch at third form assemblies :P so I have nothing against her. I'd just like to see her talking to students more often; get to know us a little better.

I think she is quite a very wise person, although it would be nice to see her out and about the school, talking to her pupils more often.
