Year 9 Career Pathways
The Careers Department begins their vocational pathway workshops with the Year 9s in Week 7, seeding some ideas and aspirations for our young men.

Alert Level 2 Protocol & Procedure
As we remain at Alert Level 2, we remind the community that sport is limited to groups of one hundred in a defined space outdoors and fifty in a defined space indoors. As a ‘single group’ different people cannot come and go under these group limits. These group limits include all players and spectators, but not referees and officials.
With the above measures in place, we are required to closely monitor numbers at events. In the first instance, our preference is for those who transport their son to our school venue, or to another school within Hawkes’ Bay, to drop their son off outside the school and organise a time and place to pick him up after the game.
If you do intend to be a spectator, please be aware that you may be asked to leave if numbers exceed limits. We understand how disappointing this will be for all supporters who enjoy watching school sport. If you intend to be a spectator onsite at NBHS, you must sign in – QR codes are at the front of the school. Finally, visitors to the site must wear a face covering.
Thank you for your understanding at this challenging time. Your continued support is appreciated by all Napier Boys’ High School staff and students alongside the many community/parent volunteers that contribute to our school’s co-curricular programme.
