From 1 January 2017, HPV immunisation is free for everyone, male and female, aged 9 to 26 years, including non-residents under the age of 18 years.

HPV immunisation is available through participating schools or from family doctors, local health centres and some Family Planning Clinics.

Dr Dilawar Singh and Dr Lakhminder Sandhu from Hamilton Lake Clinic, have offered to provide HPV vaccinations for boys at school during school hours. They have already immunised Year 12 and 13 boys and this immunisation drive is for Year 9, 10 and 11 students.

It is a free vaccine which helps to prevent penile cancer, cervical cancer, anal cancer, genital warts and certain oral cancers.

Parents can choose to get their son vaccinated at school or through their GP.

Consent forms will be coming home with students and these forms need to be returned by 5th July. 

If you have any questions about this vaccination or the process, please contact Hamilton Lake Clinic on 078390092 or 0226201600

Over the last few years a significant amount of gully restoration work has taken place in the Hamilton Boys’ High School Gully in order to transform it into a haven for native plants and wildlife.

At the moment we are trying to source native grasses (carex) to cover new cleared areas in the gully. If you are able to donate some carex could you please bring them through the Argyle entrance and place them outside the Grounds and Maintenance Workshop, just past Argyle House.

We have gully restoration working bees with student volunteers about every 2 weeks to plant new native species and keep the weeds at bay.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding plants you may be able to provide, please direct them to

Thank you

Teacher in Charge of Gully Restoration

Dear Parents,

To minimise disruption to the school HBHS has approved Field Days leave for those wishing to attend on Friday 16 June only; students will attend class as normal 12 – 15 June.  This policy allows students and the school to effectively operate normal classes and study during the week preceding.

The school will remain open on Friday 16 June and supervision will be provided for students who wish to attend.  Students attending school should report to the library at 8.45am with their school work.

We appreciate your support in allowing us to maintain an academic programme during a very busy week in the Waikato.

Yours faithfully

Please do not drive into the school grounds between 8am – 4pm, to drop off and pick up your sons.

Students must walk into and out of the school. This is a Health & Safety issue for the school.

Boys can be dropped off or picked up on one of the numerous access streets to the school. Peachgrove Rd is itself now becoming so congested that it is dangerous at peak times to stop near our entrance, so your willingness to pick up/drop off further away is appreciated.

Returning:       Friday 30th June 1600

Cost $850 per student.

Students need to be good citizens and must be able to swim 100m.

We are looking for students who are prepared to work as a team, follow instructions and treat students from other schools with respect. On each voyage, four schools compete for a ‘Spirit Trophy.’ Boys will be accompanied by a staff member.

Parents are responsible for transporting students to and from the boat.

Students or parents should see or e-mail me with expressions of interest by Friday 26th May. If possible, some background information on why you are keen to go would be appreciated, (not essential).
