Hamilton Boys' High School - Term 4, Edition 2, Nov. 2019
Seniors Studying for NCEA Exams in the Hostel Prep Room
Formal Occasions, Final Farewells, Exams & Study Leave
The year is almost over with the junior boys looking forward to their Year 10 Camp and Year 9 Activities programme next week to round off their 2019 year at Argyle House and Hamilton Boys' High School.
Thank you to all families for ensuring your son returned for the Argyle Prizegiving on Sunday 3rd November. It is always a very special and rewarding occasion that allows us to share in the success and achievements of our young men, that concludes with all Year 13 students walking across stage, for the final time at Argyle House, as part of their formal graduation.
The senior boys that remained in during study leave all worked conscientiously in the prep room from 9.00 - 10.30am and 11.00am - 12.00pm each week-day morning, under the supervision of an Argyle Master. A few Year 13s from Grove were in attendance most mornings as well. I am sure their studious approach will result in a pleasing set of NCEA examination results for all students.
With Years 9 & 10 the only year levels remaining at school, they have all enjoyed the reduction in prep hours and have made good use of the warmer weather most evenings. The tone of the hostel is very relaxed and positive, as we all look forward to the end of the school year.
The final day of school is Thursday 5th December. The hostel closes for the year on Thursday at 2.30pm.
Junior Prizegiving Timeline, Thursday 5th December:
8.45 - 9.30am: Years 9 and 10 students to tutor group to receive subject certificates for diligence, merit and distinction.

We now look forward to 2020 and the new hostel year. Our Senior Leaders and Prefects have been appointed and we have a full hostel for the start of 2020 with 47 new boarders, 39 at Year 9 level.
It has been another exceptional year at Argyle House. We are blessed with a caring and hard-working staff, an outstanding group of Prefects and Senior Leaders and a group of young men who go about their daily lives within Argyle and Grove with such positive energy. It is truly a pleasure to be part of this very special place. The support of the boys, Parents/Caregivers, Headmaster, Hostel Committee and Board of Trustees has been appreciated by us all and we now look forward to what lies ahead in 2020 with one new member of staff and 47 new boarders.
This is my final newsletter of 2019. I am sure you have all enjoyed following a snapshot of life within Argyle House and Grove over the course of the year.
Have a safe, happy and prosperous Christmas and New Year with your son, family and friends.

FIve players in this Year 9 team are boarders at Argyle House: Carson Edwards, Angus Reeves, Mac Russ, Te-Reimana Gray and Max Steel.
Front field games after dinner
I received the following email on Wednesday 27th November from a neighbouring family that I thought I would share with you all, as it relates to how well our boys mix in together when playing their own organised activities on the front field:
I live next to HBHS having moved here at the start of the year. My son Isaac is the neighbourhood kid who is out there with the boarders every day/night playing whatever activity the guys are up to.
I assume school is finishing soon for these kids and I just wanted you to know how fantastic they have been with Isaac. Considering they are all older, more skilled, with their mates etc they have always been so welcoming and inclusive of this 10 year old - chucking him the ball, letting him score a try, giving him a nickname and basically making his new life in Hamilton awesome.
We’re a couple of years away from my 4 sons being students with you but Isaac especially very much feels like part of the crowd.
Thanks to the boys and to the teachers who are obviously doing a great job.
Hostel End-of-Year Report for all Boarders
Every boarder currently on the roll at Argyle House will receive a hostel report.
Reports will be available to view from Thursday 5th December.
If you have difficulty accessing the Hamilton BHS portal, then please contact Mr Paul Gunn. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hamilton BHS Year 9 Activities
Further to our email yesterday, please note that all compulsory fees must be paid before your son will be able to participate in Year 9 Activities.
Dress & Grooming
The staff at Argyle House and Grove have become increasingly concerned that some students are flaunting the rules when it comes to presenting themselves correctly during the normal school day and especially when they return from weekend or overnight leave in their number 1s.
The boys represent the hostel and school when in the public eye, so it is important they are well-groomed, as they are our greatest advertisement. The boys are often reminded at our weekly house meetings about the responsibility they have to wear their uniform correctly and proudly outside the hostel. This also includes being cleanly shaven and having a regulation hair cut that complies with school policy.
One of the current trends is for some boys to purchase long black pants that are tapered, as part of their number 1s. Tapered, tight-fitting long black pants are not part of their number 1s. The pants must be loose-fitting around the thigh and calf. If your son has these pants then please ensure he returns with the regulation long black pants on his return. Our boys need to all dress following the correct code so we all look the same. Failure for your son to adhere to the dress and grooming rules from the beginning of term 1 2020, will result in stepped consequences. See below.
We don't want our standards to slip as the hostel should be setting the tone and standard for the rest of the school, we all believe here as a staff. Please have a conversation and check with your son over the holiday period to ensure he has the correct uniform items and returns clean-shaven with a regulation haircut. Check also that his neck hasn't swelled over the holiday period preventing him from being able to do up the top button of his white shirt. Our boys do grow quickly! All top buttons must be done up with their tie covering the top button.
Thank you for your continued support. I'm only talking to 9-10 families, as the other 158-9 comply and look perfect always.
Page 24 of the Argyle Manual 2020:
"DRESS & GROOMING
Boys wearing their regular school uniform must make every effort to ensure that their uniform is clean and tidy at all times. It is expected boys wear their footwear correctly and have school uniform shirts tucked in and socks up. Failure to comply will result in an instant 30 minute job i.e. do Lunch Duty, Kitchen Bins, vacuuming and a ‘strike’ to be recorded on the strike sheet. A third strike will result in the student being issued with a Community Service to be recorded in Boardingware.
At the end of each term this re-sets.
Consequences for a student failing to wear their socks up or have their shirt tucked in at morning check-off and/or in the dining room:
- First strike = 30 minute instant job, recorded in strike folder.
- Second strike = 30 minute instant job, recorded in strike folder.
- Third strike = Community Service, recorded in strike folder & recorded on Boardingware
Boys signing out for general leave when not in uniform must wear tidy casuals. Offensive language on any items of clothing or bags is forbidden at all times.
Boys wearing their number 1s (formal travel uniform i.e. blazer, black trousers, white shirt, tie) must ensure their top button is done up, their tie is pulled up to cover their top button, their black trousers are the regulation trousers (and are NOT tapered), they wear ankle-length black socks and black shoes, are clean-shaven and their hair is a regulation cut and length (as per school policy) and they have all parts of their uniform on i.e. including their blazer.
If a student presents himself to the Duty Master and is not correctly groomed when he departs or returns from overnight and/or weekend leave, then he will be issued with a uniform ‘strike’, which will be recorded in the ‘Uniform Strike Folder’ in a drawer beside the Masters’ desk, as well as being recorded in Boardingware.
Failure to comply with the correct grooming and dress standard when wearing number 1s, the following consequences will occur, over the whole year:
- First strike = 30 minute instant job, recorded in strike folder & recorded on Boardingware
- Second strike = Community Service, recorded in strike folder & recorded on Boardingware
- Third strike = Community Service, Gated for 5 days (Mon-Fri 3.15pm), recorded in strike folder & recorded on Boardingware
- Fourth plus strikes = Community Service, Gated for 7 days, recorded in strike folder & recorded on Boardingware"
Clothing numbered and labelledOver the holiday period can you please ensure ALL clothing is numbered with your son's laundry number, and initialled, if possible. Having the number clearly labelled is what Kaye Nonoa, our Laundress, would prefer. Please check and re-do all numbers on all clothing items before returning in 2020. Thank you for your support, as there is a continual pile of unnamed clothing that sits in the laundry that remains unclaimed.
The Beginning of the New Hostel & School Year, Term 1 2020
