From the Old Boys' office:
It has been a great start to the year, we hope that you enjoy reading our Term 1 Newsletter.
Stu, Sally and I have been busy in the office and we are well underway planning Old Boys’ events for the rest of the year. Keep an eye out for the Old Boys Dinner and a "Day at the Races" scheduled for September 10th and 11th respectively. We are also hosting Old Boys events in Tauranga on July 2nd and Auckland on July 23rd and 24th. Please keep an eye out for these we would love to see you there if you are in the vicinity.
The Old Boys’ Executive meets regularly under the guidance of President Simon O’Connor. If you have anything you would like us to consider please email me, I can then add it to the next committee agenda.
Both in New Zealand and around the world, I hope you are keeping safe and Covid is not affecting your lives too much. Again anyone with stories to tell please get in touch, it is great to be able to hear and share our old boys news.

Well done to Old Boy and PNBHS Physical Education teacher Blair van Stipriaan, who competed in the finals of the World Indoor Rowing Championships, finishing in 7th place in the 40 – 49 years, lightweight men’s category over a distance of 2,000m. Blair won the Oceania qualifying competition in December and was pleased to row a personal best time of 6.45.05 in the final. Being part of an online global competition posed some challenges, most specifically having to compete at 1.14am New Zealand time after completing a final weigh-in two hours prior.Visit this article
