The Barrowclough Programme provides a pathway for all students to pursue excellence at all year levels. It also provides a point of difference for Junior students to strive for excellence across as many fields as possible.

Congratulations to those who have completed the Junior Barrowclough Programme. The certificate you will receive recognises the positive way you have approached your academic studies and involved yourselves in school life. You should be very proud of your achievements.

For those who are not receiving a certificate this year, this does not mean you have not contributed to the culture of our school in a positive and manful way, and I encourage you to participate in the Barrowclough Award Programme next year as a senior student. 

The Barrowclough Programme assists the Palmerston North Boys’ High School vision To Develop Educated Men of Outstanding Characterwho embrace the school values of Courage, Humility, Industry, Integrity, Pride, and Respect.

In junior school, the Barrowclough Programme recognises young men who have gained positive attitude grades in their end-of-year reports, have had excellent attendance levels, and have been involved in school and extra-curricular activities. Students who meet these criteria receive a certificate acknowledging their successful involvement in the Barrowclough Programme.

The Barrowclough Programme commenced in 2009 and is named in memory of a prestigious Old Boy, Sir Harold Barrowclough, a prominent athlete, academic, and student leader at PNBHS from 1907 to 1912.

On leaving school, Sir Harold Barrowclough studied Law at Otago University, and he served his country in both the First and Second World Wars. Following World War Two, he had a long career in Law, and in 1953 he became the Chief Justice of New Zealand, a role he fulfilled for 13 years.
