Anzac Service
by Gerard Atkin - Monday, 16 May 2022, 7:27 PM
 
Thank you to all of our young men and guests for their contribution to the annual PNBHS Anzac Service. Scholarship History student Jacob Waugh delivered the Anzac Address, in which he highlighted the life and death of Old Boy Phillip Wallace Smith. Head Prefect Telson Liuvaie and Year 9 student Finley McQuade, the youngest student at PNBHS, placed a wreath on behalf of the current students of the school, Year 13 student Arahan Pilkington played the Last Post and Reveille as Deputy Head Prefect Aadesh Ganugapati lowered and then raised the New Zealand flag.

When the boys move from the hall to the front lawn of the school for the laying of wreaths and playing of the Last Post and Reveille, they walk in silence through a path marked with crosses, each bearing the name, photograph and service number of one of the 203 PNBHS Old Boys killed in war.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.

E kore rātou e kaumātuatia
Pēnei i a tātou kua mahue nei
E kore hoki rātou e ngoikore
Ahakoa pehea i ngā āhuatanga o te wā
I te hekenga atu o te rā
Tae noa ki te aranga mai i te ata
Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou”

Junior Rugby Coaches needed
by Sally Wenham - Wednesday, 11 May 2022, 11:41 AM
 

This year, PNBHS junior rugby are excited to have had a lot more students sign up to play rugby than anticipated. As a result, we are able to create an extra junior team made up of year 9 and 10 players. But to get this team off the ground we are in need of two coaches.

Games are played early / mid-morning. The home ground is Coronation Park. Practices are twice a week after school. We will have support staff that can help which includes with practices if your work commitments makes getting to practices difficult.

The season starts May 21st.

If you are interested or would like to know more, contact Brett Greer – Head of PNBHS Rugby.  greerb@pnbhs.school.nz
