waikare trip Lake Waikaremoana Expedition:
In the last week of Term 1 the School of Outdoor Pursuits class undertook the first of the year’s 2 expeditions. Over 4 days the boys paddled 35 km and circumnavigated the entire lake.
Accommodation was in DOC wilderness huts and the boys organised everything and cooked all their own food for the 4 days. Many of them learned some useful life skills here which should help them later when they are beginning to fend for themselves. Putting classroom theory into this sort of practice makes the learning that much more real. More.......
gateway Gateway:
All the Gateway boys are settled into their placements now. We have a great lot of boys on Gateway!!
They are all showing that they are very reliable, have good communication skills and are keen to learn new skills. On Monday we had 8 boys complete an ATV course and Tuesday we had 3 boys doing an ATVU course (side by side cart) which a lot of the farmers are using now due to not being allowed to take passengers on the ATV bikes.
writing Writing Programme:
For some years we have been concerned about the writing skills of our students. The lack of these skills is a major barrier for achievement particularly in NCEA Level 1-3. This year we made the decision with the support of the Board of Trustees to start a Whole School-Cross Curricular Writing focus.
Dr. Ian Hunter from Auckland University is an expert on writing and has developed an exceptionally good programme based on software called, “Write That Essay”
history trip Library Kia Orana Everyone!
I was lucky enough to travel away with our senior boys on a combined schools history trip with Gisborne Girls High School students and their teacher Laurie Harrison. Our senior students were Toby, Oliver and Dion. The students were well received everywhere we went. Many locals around Northland commented on their respect and consideration for other people and spaces. More.......
ki-o team NZSS Ki-o-Rahi Nationals:
The 2015 NZSS Ki-o-Rahi Nationals were held over the April school holidays at our very own Rectory field. It was a fantastic event, with over 20 teams competing for the national
title. Our Turanga Tane Turanga Wahine team played fantastically in this tournament reaching the final vs. Lytton High School. A massive crowd watched a pulsating final, with Lytton High School eventually edging out our team and taking the national title. More.......
cyclone pam Parent-Teacher Association:
Whereas our PTA has some new and enthusiastic members, we always welcome new parents if you are interested in coming along. The PTA meets once a month – usually on a Monday evening at 5:30. Our current project is to help run the Quiz Evening on Friday 19th June. The Quiz Evening is to raise money for the people of Vanuatu, following the devastation caused by Cyclone Pam. More.......
IT Report:
In the last two years, 2014 and so far in 2015, Gisborne Boys’ High School has moved a very long way with respect to providing the Network structure and the accessibility to the Network throughout the School. More.......
Year 10-12/13 Parent Forums:
We are all making a major effort this year to be communicators.
Working together is the focus of our Year 9/10 Tu Whanau programme.
Talking about what is happening, planned, or being put in place as a collectively group ensures that information, ideas, problems are addressed as a School Community.
