House Sports

House Tabloid Sports 2015:

The House competition for 2015 got off to a great start with our traditional first event, the Tabloid Sports. For Year 9 students this event introduces them to the House system at GBHS and helps them get to know the other boys in their form class. It also provides an opportunity for Senior Boys to take a leadership role within their form class. All Houses demonstrated excellent behaviour and competitive spirit, this years competition promises to be very evenly fought.

Tu Tane Tu Tane 2015: Tu Tane (To Stand A Man) has started for 2015 with the entire Year 10 group making the pilgrimage to Kaiti Hill to think about letting boyhood go. Each class has then individually trekked over the Te Kuri Walkway (see pictures below) as a more physical challenge. The focus for term 1 is Identity and each of the boys is asked to look at his link to his community and his background, his family, the influences in his life and the challenges he faces.
Gateway Gateway: Gateway has had a very busy start to the year with lots of great young boys, keen to get out on their placements. This year the number of credits the boys have to achieve on their placements in order for Gateway to receive funding, has increased from 10 to 20 credits. To help the boys achieve this we ran a 3 day course the week before school started.
Tu Whanau Tu Whanau Stand Together: Our Tu Whanau programme, designed to raise student achievement by involving parents in their sons’ education, had a great start with our Year 9 Hui. 149 families took part, with the evening culminating in a sit-down meal in our School Gymnasium-Restaurant. Research shows that you can make a real difference to your son’s achievement at school. The information below summarises some of the benefits of parents working alongside their children:
