Hai Whakapakari i Ngā Tamatāne Kia Purapura Tuawhiti | To Develop Educated
Men of Outstanding Character has been the vision of Palmerston North Boys’ High
School for nearly 20 years. This vision recognises the value we place on focusing
on the all-round development of our young men.
Participation in and out of the classroom is strongly encouraged; young men are
supported to achieve to their potential in their academic studies and to involve
themselves in our co-curricular programmes. Character education focuses on our
school values Tū Māia | Courage – Ngākau Mahaki | Humility – Te mahi tahi |
Industry – Tū Rangatira | Integrity – Tū Whakahī | Pride – Tū Whakaaute | Respect
and young men and staff are encouraged to display these values in their behaviour
‘Our Code’ links the key competencies from the New Zealand Curriculum, our school
values and desired learning behaviours. Our Code forms the basis of ‘tracking’
reports emailed to parents throughout the year and is utilised in a range of different
ways by teachers across the school.
