Description

Since 1882 NPBHS has been leading the way in the education of boys in a world class environment. From the famous amphitheatre that is the Gully Ground, (the stage for the incomparable full school haka), to the impressive 1200 seat Ryder Assembly Hall, NPBHS is a modern learning environment where traditional standards of achievement and behaviour are expected. Our hostel, with 170 Boarders is the heart of the school, not just in terms of culture and standards but because it is also set within the heart of 37 acres of park like school grounds. Our passionate and dedicated staff ensure NPBHS has an innovative and challenging curriculum which combines a testing academic programme with an exhaustive list of curricula activities. It is proven that many life skills and values are obtained through the participation in extra curricular activities.

Interesting Whether you like Bill Gates or not...this is pretty cool. Here's some advice Bill Gates recently dished out at a high school speech about 11 things they did not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teaching has created a full generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept sets them up for failure in the real world. RULE 1 Life is not fair - get used to it. RULE 2 The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. RULE 3 You will NOT make 60 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with car phone, until you earn both. RULE 4 If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure. RULE 5 Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping they called it Opportunity. RULE 6 If you mess up,it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. RULE 7 Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. RULE 8 Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. RULE 9 Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time. RULE 10 Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. RULE 11 Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

The gym will be open during the holidays. The gym is open from next Monday to Friday (14th to 19th) then it's closed until the 4th of Jan. Then it's normal from the 4th to the 28th. The opening hours are as follows: Monday - Friday (closed in the weekend) Morning session: 10-12pm Afternoon session: 4-6pm It's best if I can fit as many people's schedule so I might be changing the hours sometime. If I do, I'll let you know asap so that you can tell the boys. Do let them know that Rowson has revamped the gym and so pay attention to the small white board stands at stations around the gym saying what equipment is allowed on here and what's not, what type of weights etc... I'm sure you've already had a look in there and know what Im talking about. There's also a small log book which the boys need to write down there name when they come in, just to keep track of who's been in and out. Cheers
