Week Ahead: Week 8 Term 1 (20-26 March)


Napier Boys High School Week Ahead

Week Ahead: Week 8, Term 1, Monday 20th March – Sunday 26th March

Boys’ Breakfast 

This event is for the significant men in our Y9s’ lives – fathers/guardians/mentors. This is held onsite Friday, 24 March 7:00 – 8:15am. The aim of the breakfast is to continue the momentum gained from the Y9 Ladder to Manhood programme. All attendees will leave the ‘Boys Breakfast’ with ideas related to supporting and communicating with their teenage son.  

Breakfast is subsidised. For $15 you receive breakfast for two. 

There is a limited number of places still available. Please click here to register. 

Uniform Shop 

Pleas ensure that your son has a winter school uniform ready to wear for Term 2.  All students need to be in correct winter uniform – a long-sleeve winter shirt. Prices for winter uniform are available on the school website. The winter shirt is $48.  

To make purchasing winter uniform easier, orders may be emailed to uniforms@nbhs.school.nz   

Please ensure your email contain your son’s name, type of uniform required, size and quantity. This service is available if your son’s school account has funds to cover the cost. Sizing can be based on current summer uniform. Items may be exchanged if they have not been worn or named. Orders must be collected by your son from the school office.  

The Uniform Shop is open Tuesday after school, 3 – 4.30pm, and Thursday lunch, 1:10 -2:10pm, for new and second-hand uniform purchases. 

Term 2 holiday hours: the school Uniform Shop is open for new and second-hand purchases on Friday, 21 April 10:00 – 3:30pm. 

Cycling & Road Safety 

We appreciate your support to ensure that your son uses his bike / scooter responsibly travelling to / from school. The main message is for the boys to be aware of others, namely parked / moving vehicles and respecting pedestrians.  

Key messages need to be revisited – be safe, be aware, be seen and be prepared.  

More information to share with your son can be found here – cycle safety  

Upcoming Events – stay informed  

Please keep a close eye on this school newsletter, the ‘Week Ahead’, each Friday where any changes will be communicated.  

Urgent updates will be pushed-out via the School App, School Bridge.

Term One Progress Report 

This report offers an overview of your son’s achievement and effort. Ordinarily, we produce two reports a term. However, this term we will be generating only one. The April progress report will be emailed to parents / caregivers in Week 10. Please make the time to talk through this report with your son, acknowledging the positives, work-ons and setting goals to collectively work toward. 

If you do have any concerns in relation to your son’s progress at school, academic or pastoral, your fist contact is their tutor teacher. You can find staff emails here
