Bright Futures Fund

Join Us in Building a Bright Future

Our vision is to provide a world class Montessori education to each and every student who comes through our doors.




Imagine a school where students are encouraged to challenge themselves across all their abilities, where they can find their balance and push their boundaries however they choose.


“ Movement, or physical activity, is an essential factor in intellectual growth, which depends upon the impressions received from outside. Through movement we come in contact with external reality, and it is through these contacts that we eventually acquire even abstract ideas.”
– Dr. Maria Montessori


active lifestyles

Westmont offers an educational environment that is both dynamic and engaging. Students move around their classroom and our campus, constrained only by the limits of their imagination and curiosity. Our students are active learners in every sense of the word and are laying the foundations for an active and healthy life.

In 2011 parents and staff came together and raised the funds to build our amazing bouldering wall in the gym. Every student can now practice their technique (or just monkey around). Working on the wall is not only great for agility and strength — it is also a lot of fun! The wall is always available for teachers to add to their classes weekly activities and offers a unique and fun way for students to challenge themselves and build in a love of all forms of movement.

Help us ensure active lifestyles for future generations by supporting our Bright Futures Fund.



“Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities.”
– Dr. Maria Montessori


creative spirits

Westmont seeks to build connections with new and established artists in our community and beyond – working to enrich the cultural life of our school and our community. Whether it is mime or music, acting or voice lessons, our students have the opportunity to learn and grow through performance and creative expression.

We are lucky at Westmont to have connections with some internationally renowned artists. Students have been mentored and supported by these artists as they work on some of our performance pieces for the Winter Celebrations, opening ceremonies or the much loved talent show. Whether it is mime or music, acting or voice lessons, our students have grasped the opportunity to learn and grow through performance with both hands.

“The land is where our roots are. Children must be taught to feel and live in harmony with the Earth. We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”
– Dr. Maria Montessori


engaged minds

From imaginative international ‘trips’; through working with local gardeners to learn about our natural environment; to supporting Malawian girls to complete their education, Westmont strives to connect the everyday world of our school with the wider currents
of the global community.

Westmont has always believed that our students need to have an understanding and awareness of the wider world. All our classes bring this perspective to their daily activities. We have ‘trips’ to far flung nations, snapshots of other cultures are brought in to discussions and explorations, and many of our staff bring international experience to bear on their teaching role. Westmont strives to connect the everyday world of the school with the wider currents of the global community.
