At Palmy Boys’
Palmerston North Boys’ High School offers students a wide range of sporting options.
We run one of the most extensive sporting programmes in New Zealand and while we are extremely proud of our first team results, the opportunity exists to compete at any level in the extensive list of sporting codes offered at our School. Pride, passion and sportsmanship are key ingredients of the School’s sporting ethos which is instilled in every young man.
Students compete with distinction at local, national and international levels, and have a proud and strong tradition of competing at the highest levels in National Secondary School Competitions. This is reinforced by the outstanding results of our top teams across all sporting codes and the number of New Zealand Secondary School representatives named each year. Traditional fixtures take place with most strong sporting schools in the lower half of the North Island, and the Super 8 Schools competition further extends our sporting connections and provides our young men with very high levels of competition. Opportunities to play teams from other countries exist, as do opportunities to join international tours in a range of codes.
Our young men are provided with another dimension to their all-round development where all teaching staff are directly involved as coaches and/or managers of over 180 sports teams and groups at all levels each year. We are fortunate indeed in the quality of our outside coaches who assist us in allowing all boys to be able to play at the most appropriate level for their aspirations and ability.
The Sports Development Programme ensures that our most talented sportsmen have the best coaching and conditioning available at School.
There is equally a place for the boy who just wants to have fun whilst playing sport and those who wish to compete on the world stage. Whatever your chosen sport, the School will support your progression and development.
