Leaving Staff 2019
ni Ella Mitchell - Friday, 13 December 2019, 12:32 PM


Mrs. Wagstaff joined our staff at the beginning of the 2019 school year.  She has a varied background in Learning Support, ESOL and RTLB roles and was able to effectively use her experience to support young men who required additional support to assist their learning.  Mrs. Wagstaff took responsibility for school table tennis while she was here.  She is moving into a leadership role in the local RTLB cluster and we wish her all the best for this next step in her career.

Mrs. Power joined us in April 2018 in a fixed term position as a teacher of English.  We were extremely fortunate to be able to employ a suitably qualified teacher at that time of the year.  Mrs. Power has enthusiastically involved herself in school life and we wish her all the best for the next steps in her teaching career.

Mrs. Norman began her time with us in January 2018, initially in the English department.  However, a change of staffing in the Commerce Department resulted in an enormous hole that needed to be filled, which she was keen to attempt to do.  Mrs. Norman has consistently demonstrated a genuine care and concern for young men’s welfare and has supported the school co-curricular programme.  We wish her all the best for the next steps in her life and teaching career as she moves to the Hawke’s Bay.

Mr. Forbes joined the PNBHS staff in as a Mathematics teacher at the beginning of the 2013 school year.  As well as having a passion for Mathematics that is peculiar to teachers of the subject, he has taken responsibility for the school timetable, a significant role that requires many hours of work at nighttime, weekends and over the summer holiday break.  Mr. Forbes has been a significant contributor to the school co-curricular programme as the manager of the Premier A Tennis team, coach of the 2nd XI Football team and this year as the assistant coach of the 1st XI Football team.  Mr. Forbes is taking a year’s leave in 2020 and we wish him all the best for this.

Mrs. Burgess was appointed to a teaching position in the English Department in January 2013.  It was immediately apparent that she was incredibly hard working, willing to try new approaches in her teaching in order to meet the needs of the young men in her classes and very strongly supportive of the Palmerston North Boys’ High School ethos and expectations of young men.  Mrs. Burgess’ subject expertise was recognised when she was given responsibility for overseeing the Year 9 English programme in 2014.  Mrs. Burgess has supported our co-curricular programme through her involvement in touch, basketball and tennis, as well as organising the Year 9 Speech competition and teams for the junior Spelling Bee competition.  We wish her all the best as she continues her career with the Central Regional Health School.

Mr. Halford joined the PNBHS Technology Department in January 2000 as a teacher of Graphics and Woodwork and was appointed to ...

New Zealand Secondary School Championships

New Zealand Secondary School Championships

Newtown Park, Wellington

6-8 December 2019

In atrocious weather conditions, pouring rain and strong gale force winds, placings not times were important.  The school team of 12 adapted well keeping their composure to record a fine set of results.  Inclement weather meant the Road Race championship had to be cancelled.


Angus Lyver – Junior Boys (U16)

1st 200m – a fine effort in a race run in a torrential downpour – 23.22secs

2nd Long Jump – 6m.33cm – another outstanding effort in trying conditions


The Junior 4 x 100m finished 3rd.  Team members:

Greg Austin, Caleb Evans, Forbes Kennedy and Angus Lyver.  They produced quality changes which meant another outstanding leg from Angus and a gutsy and composed team performance.


In the 4 x 400m run on times the team of Greg Austin, Caleb Evans, Sam Lohrey and Forbes Kennedy finished 8th to gain valuable experience for the future, a top effort 3mins 57.15secs.


Other individual results for Juniors were:

Greg Austin               400m - semi-finalist 55.91secs (12th)

Caleb Evans              200m - semi-finalist 24.28 (PB) (15th)

                                     High Jump -1m.60cm (17th)

Sam Lohrey               Triple Jump - 11m.10cm (15th)

                                   400m - 60.6cm (20th)

Reuben Duker          1500m - 4mins.44secs

Forbes Kennedy       400m - 56.75secs

                                    Long Jump - 5m.49cm (reserve for semi-finals)


Senior Results:

Benjamin Wall ran a fine tactical race to finish 4th in a rough close race in tough conditions.  A fine performance - 4mins.05.60secs. 


Guy Peterson in the javelin with gale force winds, meaning luck played a part. Threw 44.53cm to finish 10th.  This was not a true indication of his ability, none-the-less a creditable effort.  

Liam Wall                  1500m - 4mins 25.83secs, gained valuable experience as a first

year senior. 

Robert Norman         800m – 2mins 8.55secs

Dirki Botha                800m – 2mins 6.18secs


Senior 4x400 finished 13th.  Team members:

Angus Lyver, Robert Norman, Liam Wall and Dirki Botha.  A gutsy effort a valuable experience for the future.


Once again school athletes can perform well if they train regularly and adapt to the conditions.


Finally, thanks to our Manager and driver Tony Chettleburgh from Tranzit Coachlines for your knowledge and support.


It was pleasing to see parents at the meeting, the boys appreciate your interest and support.
