The Main Event of the Year!

Well, here we are again! Unbelievable! The end of the year is upon us - how the year has flown! The Formal Dinner is a key annual event we always look forward to when we all start the new school year in February, and this year was no exception. The organisation and preparation that goes into it, make it the highlight of the year. Once again we were privileged to have the Mayor of Whangarei Sheryl Mai, Whangarei Deputy Mayor Sharon Morgan and the Whangarei Boys' High Old Boys' Association President Garry Whimp as just some of our invited guests. Miss Sue and her team of Miss Ivanka, Miss Tania and Miss Teri provided us with a meal that was 'second to none!' Mr Norman was our MC for the evening and Miss Kiri did all the arrangements that just make the evening 'sparkle'. It is customary for the boys to do the haka to the invited party before they enter the dining hall, and the effort and passion that was given to this was no less than the All Blacks performing it on the field before a test. To see boys 'step up' and take leadership and control is always something we strive for.


Good luck to all those involved with NCEA Examinations, we hope you all do well. There certainly has been plenty of revision happening in and around Carruth House these last couple of weeks, so expectations of success are justifiably high.
