Why Gisborne Boys' High School?

At Gisborne Boys’ High School we want to make your son a successful learner. We will provide him with a wide range of learning opportunities so that he can develop skills that are important to him and to his future. We will explore teaching in ways that enable him to develop his personal skills and qualities. We will promote and foster self-discipline and self-responsibility. At Gisborne Boys’ High School we will support our students in all facets of their learning and ensure that they have a safe, caring and well-resourced learning environment.

The journey from young teenage man to young adult man is also about growing physically. For us, committing to the challenge of both individual and team/group discipline in any type of co-curricular sport or activity must be promoted and encouraged. All of our young men have the opportunity to compete against other individuals or teams, in a wide range of physical and cultural activities.

G.H. Mackle, Principal
