Dear Parents, Caregivers and Students

This Friday 20th of October, we will be holding a Sports Scholarship Seminar for students who are interested in playing college sport in the US. This will be run by two fantastic speakers from Crimson Education: Bryan Moore is a Harvard graduate who was the leading Harvard lacrosse goaltender, and Tessa Berger played Division 1 soccer for Florida state!

They will take any interested students through what life would be like in the US. In addition they will talk to students about the NCAA process and the difference sport can make when applying to the Ivy League.

This is a great opportunity for all students from Year 9 through to Year 13 to learn about the university application process, and to ask sportsmen with experience about what it was like and how they did it.

Also, contrary to popular belief, students don't need to be state or national representatives to obtain a US sports scholarship, as coaches will look for a mix of academic and athletic ability.

So, this talk isn't exclusive to just the top athletes in the school, but also for dedicated academic students who are interested in using their sporting ability to gain acceptance into some of the best universities in the world!

This seminar is open to all year levels. It will be held in the Students Services Centre in the Careers room during the lunchtime of week one, term four Friday (the 20th of October).

We look forward to seeing any interested students then.

Personal Presentation

Hamilton Boys’ High School insists on high standards of personal presentation and we ask for your assistance with this. We ask all parents to attend to hair and uniform issues with their sons over the next few days, so they come back to school ready for work and prepared in their presentation. Jerseys, shirts, shorts, trousers and socks may need repair.

Boys need an appropriate hair cut to ensure their hair is short back and sides and of even length. Students whose hair is longer than regulation will incur a detention (see below for regulation details).

Socks – Boys’ socks need to be long enough to pull up to the knees. If socks do not reach the knees they need replacement. Garters should be purchased or made to assist with this. The School Shop provides free garters with the first pair of socks sold. Garters are also available for sale at $4 a pair.

Shoes - Must be black, leather, lace-up, clean and shining. If sandals are worn, they must be the standard black or brown Roman style and must be in good repair.

Jackets - If your son chooses to wear a jacket, it must be the official school jacket.

Lost Property – This is held in the Student Services Centre. Lost property will only be held for four weeks. Please make sure all clothing is labelled to make it easy to return to your son. The person in charge is Mrs Margaret Clark Tel: 853 0440

Labels - Naming Uniform – we ask parents to name all school uniform. Shoes can be labelled as well. Two label companies are listed for iron-on or stitch labels:

1. Logo Express, Centreplace ph 838 3688 

2. for online ordering

Hair – is to be short, neat and tidy, of even length, following the natural hairline above the collar, ears and eyebrows. Hair must not be braided, dyed, waxed, straightened, nor be tied, spiked, or cut with ridges. All students are to be clean-shaven.

Hairdresser – Our School Hairdresser is available for bookings. Pay $15 at the School Shop and a time will be arranged for your son within the school day.

For further clarification of our uniform and hair rules, please refer to your son's School Diary (pg 127).

Thank you for your assistance and for checking your son when he leaves for school and returns home each school day.

Kind regards,

If your son has Anaphylaxis or Allergies, please contact us so we can send you the Action Plan that we need to have completed for your son, whilst he is at school.

Address and Phone Numbers
If your address or work/home phone number has changed, can you please update this by emailing or ringing the school office.  It is important for the school to have up to date records.

If your son is wanting Physio for an ACC injury, the free school Physios are at HBHS Monday to Friday.  To book you can ring Hillcrest Physio on 07 856 4656 and ask for an appointment at HBHS. Physios see students in the Health Centre in the Student Services Centre.

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Your son may have made you aware of a planned trip to China for 25-30 students of Accounting, Business Studies and Economics in the school holidays of April 2019. Students have received a preliminary notice about the tour.

On Wednesday, 27 September 2017 at 6:00pm in the school staffroom, we are holding a parents’ and students’ meeting outlining the itinerary, costs, fundraising options and other details about this trip. This meeting will help you and your son decide whether you wish to pursue this venture.

This trip will be run in conjunction with Edventure Group Travel Specialists and there will be representatives from this organisation at the meeting to share the experiences other local schools have had on similar curriculum tours to China.

We look forward to meeting you and discussing this exciting opportunity with you.

Kind regards
