From playing football on the field to laughing together when feeling overwhelmed by schoolwork, most of the time, the best memories are made during the simplest of moments, like sitting around in the common room and talking with each other. A sense of brotherhood was built upon the years of being together at Wesgreen, and that is what school life is all about. Having a good brotherhood amongst your peers is the most important aspect of high school life.

    Syed Shayaan Ahmed Hashmi

  • I joined Wesgreen in 2008, graduated in 2017 and I’m currently a final year Law student at Trinity College Dublin. My time at Wesgreen helped me really grow as a person. Besides offering a brilliant education, the staff placed a strong emphasis on leadership roles and extra-curricular activities that gave me many opportunities to enhance my interpersonal, leadership, and communication skills. My teachers were nothing but supportive especially in my final years when figuring out my career paths and navigating university applications. Without the help of my teachers I wouldn’t be where I am today. They truly want the best for their students. During my A levels I wanted to study subjects that were not usually offered. However, as soon as I expressed interest, accommodations were quickly made to ensure I studied the subjects I desired.

    Head Boy - 2016

  • I started my educational journey at Wesgreen International School in September 2014 and graduated in June 2019. I spent this past academic year studying for my A-Levels in order to further my studies in Dublin, Ireland, focusing on engineering. I feel the guidance and knowledge that my teachers provided have led to me achieving the results I need to attract offers from leading universities in Ireland. The pinnacle of my secondary schooling would undoubtedly be the various leadership roles I have served in alongside many accomplished students. My time at Wesgreen has shown me how the core values of the school, promotes equal opportunity for students to express the best version of themselves. A strong emphasis is made on both the academic and extra-curricular aspects of student development, with countless opportunities to shine in events such as science fairs, business fairs, debates and MUN conferences. As a member of Wesgreen’s alumni, I hope to contribute towards the progress of current students to the best of my ability; and encourage present students to reach out to ex-students for any guidance or advice they may need.

    Head Boy academic year 2018/2019

  • Wesgreen holds a very close place in my heart. I was challenged to develop and make decisions that I never thought I would be able to do with the support of my teachers. I participated in MUN conferences abroad, bake sales and more. There was always an opportunity to learn something apart from our regular academic work. Wesgreen promoted leadership roles and wanted every student to be involved. I feel like that motivation helped me improve my leadership skills. I am currently working as a student manager in my university’s computer department. I will be graduating in 2020/2021, and I owe it to the staff at Wesgreen International School for helping me realize that anything is possible when you put your mind to it. My favorite memory of Wesgreen was the small meetings that we used to have with Mr. Andy Cheung during form time. I could go on and on about the memories I have made, but I feel like the time I’ve spent in Wesgreen is a memory in itself.
