Our Generation United

The Palmerston North Boys' High School World Vision Committee presents from Our Generation United, a keynote speakers event with the topic of the evening being 'Uniting people together for change'.

The money raised from this event will go towards education and safe places for children in Syrian Refugee camps.

The PNBHS World Vision committee are pushing to spread as much awareness as possible to a community that doesn't know much about the topic as well as hopefully raising above $50,000 this year which is nearly five times the amount raised by the committee last year.

Throughout the night there will be performances along side the speakers including NZ favourites Libby Offord and more.

The first speaker is Thomas Nash who has been working overseas in removing unexploded cluster bomblets, landmines and other unexploded remnants of war in areas where there are now people living in again. The second speaker is Mike Allsop, an airline pilot, who has climbed Mt Everest. He is an adventurer, extreme marathon competitor and an ordinary family man proving that anybody can accomplish extraordinary things. The last speaker on the panel is Kalvin Hart who is passionate about empowering people to reach their full potential and who is a representative from thankyou, the social enterprise that was born in 2008 in Australia in response to the world water crisis.

By attending this event you have an opportunity to be part of something that is going to change the world - or you can sit by and watch someone else do it.

Friday, August 11 - Regent on Broadway, Palmerston North

PNBHS 2nd XV vs Wellington College 2nd XV

PNBHS 2nd XV vs Wellington College 2nd XV


PNBHS entertained Wellington College 2nd XV in their traditional fixture on Saturday at Coronation Park. Poor weather in the lead up to the game and steady rain during the match meant it was likely to be a tight forward battle.

From the kick off, PNBHS forced an error and some good carries by the forwards led to Israel Young beating a defender to score under the posts for an early 7-0 lead. An error from the kick off allowed Wellington to build some pressure and they were rewarded with a penalty which reduced the deficit to 7-3. This seemed to hand Wellington the initiative and they camped in the PNBHS 22 for the next 15 minutes, helped by some inaccuracies from PNBHS. However, strong defence held Wellington at bay with their only reward another penalty and the score was 7-6.

PNBHS rallied and their forwards began to take control of the game. Strong carries from Israel Young and Soane Fakahau punched holes in the Wellington defence, creating space for Bryn Gordon. He punched through the hole and managed to get an offload away for Harlow Apiata to score. More pressure was applied and another charge from Bryn Gordon saw him suck in defenders before popping the ball to Korie Winters for an easy score and a 19-6 half time lead.

The second half started in a similar fashion with the Boys’ High forwards to the fore. A big charge from Bryn Gordon and Tom Finlay gave PNBHS field position and when they were awarded a penalty they were rewarded with a well-executed ‘catch & drive’ and a second try to Harlow Apiata. PNBHS kept applying pressure and a crunching tackle from Isaiah Sua caused the ball to come loose and Mitch Leach pounced on it for the 5th try.

Wellington scored a late consolation after some concerted pressure but a very positive performance by the 2nd XV which is encouraging as we approach semis and finals.

Final score 31-11

Scorers:

Tries:
Israel Young
Harlow Apiata x 2
Korie Winters
Mitch Leach

Conversions:
Jack Harris x 3
