Dear Parents and Caregivers

As a school we mourn the sudden loss of our Deputy Headmaster and treasured colleague Graham Robinson. His passing will be felt throughout our school community. The family and school thank all those parents, students, old boys and friends of the school who have expressed their sympathies in so many ways.

Mr Robinson’s funeral will be held this Thursday in the school hall at 11.00am. We would ask caregivers of all Yr 9 and 10 students not to send your sons to school on this day, as classes will not be operating. All students of the school are of course most welcome to attend the funeral.

Thank you

Susan Hassall
Headmaster

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.

Regards

TERM 4 2017 BEGINS ON MONDAY 16 OCTOBER

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 mclark@hbhs.school.nz

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. www.Nameit.co.nz 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,

Dear Parents/Caregivers

Update for Term 3, 2017 from the Health Centre.

Sickness, diarrhoea, vomiting
A reminder if your son has had diarrhoea or vomiting, we request you keep him home for 48 hours from his last episode.  This is the recommendation from the Medical Officer of Health at Waikato District Health Board.

Change in Medical Condition
If there has been any change in your son’s medical conditions, can you also let us know via email or phone call, so we can add this to your son's details.  

Anaphylaxis or Allergies
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 jcullen@hbhs.school.nz or ringing the school office.  It is important for the school to have up to date records.

Physiotherapy
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.

Drink Bottles
Please remind your sons not to share drink bottles.  We are seeing quite a number of sore throats as a result of boys sharing.

Any queries please contact us.

Many thanks
