Hamilton Boys' High School
Newsletter 5, September 2019
It has been a hectic and exciting start to Term 3 with the arrival of two Japanese short stay groups.
On the first day of term, we welcomed 12 boys from the Kanto Super League. The programme, called Game On English, is a collaboration between Education NZ and Fonterra and it provides elite Japanese high school rugby players with the opportunity to develop and use their English Language skills and enjoy specialist rugby coaching and training in a New Zealand high school. It was an honour for our school was selected for this programme and it was an absolute pleasure to work with these enthusiastic young men.
The photos capture just some of the many highlights of their time with us.
