At Nelson College for Girls we
take great PRIDE in all that we do.
We offer high quality, affordable
education for young women in
a very dynamic and supportive
environment. Our Boarding Hostel,
Clarice Johnstone House, offers high
quality accommodation for up to
150 students, from New Zealand and
overseas. For many of our boarders,
there are significant opportunities
for them to be involved in sporting
and cultural activities that would not
otherwise be available to them.
Our boarding students are part
of a very large family, proactively
supported by our senior students
through a wide variety of student
led activities. Nelson College for Girls
has a strong house system and all
of our boarders are members of the
same house, Whangamoa. They are
passionate participants in all house
activities in the school and revel in
the ‘purple’ house succeeding well.
Our Year 9–12 students live in
Clarice Johnstone House where they
enjoy considerable facilities for study
and recreation. Our Year 13 students
have the privilege of living in the
This very modern accommodation,
opened in 2011, provides them with a
more independent living experience,
while still ensuring our most senior
students play a pivotal role in creating
the family atmosphere of the
academic success, make
lifelong friendships and
enjoy strong connections
within the school and its
community. They take PRIDE in taking
part in activities such as sporting
clubs, choirs, jazz bands and drama
productions. These are wonderful
opportunities for them.
College for Girls has an outstanding
reputation for academic excellence.
This is demonstrated strongly by
our NCEA and Scholarship results for
2014. For example over 90% of our
year 11 and year 12 students were
awarded a National Certificate.
At the end of 2014, in the
Scholarship examinations, a total of

I’m hugely blessed and honoured to be Head Boy at
Nelson College. I love the sense of spirit and brotherhood
within our school and hope that in the year ahead I can
help build on this great culture.
Our College is one of New Zealand’s oldest, established
in 1856 and was the birth place of rugby in New Zealand.
As a result, we have a strong mix of tradition and
contemporary learning. The challenge to develop 1300
young men to their full potential is a mighty task and one
that our teachers put in a huge effort to achieve.
It will be a big year of growth for me personally and
already I am being challenged particularly in the field of
leadership and becoming a stronger and more competent
public speaker. At the end of the year I hope I have grown
into this space and also developed a greater sense of
myself, and confidence.
Nelson College has a motto “Pietas, Probitas et Sapientia”
that translates as Loyalty, Honesty and Wisdom. This
encapsulates the vision that we set for our students and
are values which I will strive to uphold as Head Boy.
So far this year, my responsibilities as head boy have
involved in planning and running weekly assemblies on
the Respect 360 program, working with the rest of the
leadership team to organise our big charity event for the
year to support our chosen charity of the Child Cancer
Society, and of course lots more speaking, as well as
representing the student body and the school itself.
My first formal address to the College will be on the
bible story “the parable of the talents”. In this parable
we are reminded of the importance to pursue and grow
the different talents we have been given. I think this is a
key challenge to all college students. To use our youth
to explore and discover our areas of skill and build upon
them so we can maximise our impact as adults.
At the end of my time here at college I hope to pursue
a joint academic-athletic scholarship to the United States,
where I would attend University while traveling the
country and playing football.
Waihi is an independent preparatory school for
boys aged eight to thirteen. We cater for both day
and boarding boys from Year 4 to Year 8. Situated
north of Winchester in South Canterbury on 10
hectares of attractive grounds, Waihi is a small,
family-oriented school with Christian values.
For over one hundred years boys have enjoyed
a remarkable education here in the heart of
beautiful South Canterbury. The boys of today
are no different, they travel from across the South
Island, and beyond, to live, grow and learn in our
very special school.

St Kevin’s College is a co-educational, Year 9–13 boarding and
day Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition. Founded
in 1927, the College has an established record of outstanding
academic achievement, enriched with diverse cultural, sporting
and leadership opportunities. With 30 years of co-educational
experience, the confidence of our students as they take their
place in the world is testament to the respectful co-educational
learning environment established at the College.
Students are challenged to become 21st century global
citizens. Our mission is to foster confident, connected, actively
involved life-long learners inspired by gospel values. Principal,
Paul Olsen, says emphasis is placed on developing strong
Literacy and Numeracy skills in preparation for NCEA
assessments in the senior school.
“Our NCEA results are among the highest in the
country and these are supported by a successful
Cambridge programme in the Junior School,” he says.
St Kevin’s boast an exceptional sporting heritage
which is complimented with a swimming pool,
hockey turf, gymnasium, weights room, courts and fields — all
situated on the campus. An on-site equestrian arena adds to
the facilities available to our students and the Equine Studies
programme is unique to the South Island. Culturally, they are
exposed to a strong tradition of public speaking, debating,
singing, music and drama, contesting in cultural competitions
which complement the sporting side of student life.
St Kevin’s identifies with four Core values — Family, Integrity,
Respect and Excellence. These are the College FIRE Values and
staff and students are challenged to live these values on a daily
basis. We are a community that fosters a sense of loyalty and
honour as Kevinians.
