HBHS Parents' Association (PA)

promoting involvement of parents in the school

  • Hamilton Boys’ High School’s Parents Association is all about getting parents and caregivers involved in school life through helping organise various events in the year. We are not primarily a fundraising body;  more a group interested in being of service to the school.

  • At the start of the year the PA also supplies new families with a Parents Handbook, a handy pocket calendar of school events and a fridge magnet with key contact details.

  • The PA holds its AGM in late February and new faces are always welcome. We’d love to hear from anyone interested in learning more about the events and projects we’re involved in.

  • The events we help organise or host include:

    • Father/son breakfast with guest speaker in Term One.

    • A staff morning tea in Term Three.

    • Hosting open day in Term Three.

    • The formal Year 13 leavers dinner with guest speaker in Term Four.

Other Projects include:

  • Working with the school to restore our gully area, which is used by students for Science and PE.  This will include applying for grants in the coming years.
  • Looking to promote other guest speaker evenings on topics relating to teenage boys.
  • Sales of Entertainment voucher books to the school community.
  • Keeping the PA pages on the school website up to date and informative.
  • Keeping the information in the Parents Handbook up to date and informative.
