A traditional school with a contemporary heart

Parent/Teachers Association 

The Southland Boys’ High School Parent/Teachers’ Association is a group of enthusiastic parents and caregivers who plan a variety of events and activities for our students and their families. 

The PTA relies on support and time volunteered from members to provide events and programs to students. The PTA meets once a month, and new committee members and supporters are always welcomed.

Any help is truly appreciated – both by the PTA, and the students who benefit.

Join the PTA

There are two main ways that you can take an active interest in Southland Boys’ High School.

Join the PTA: new committee members are always welcome! Come along to a meeting and find out how you can get involved in the decision-making and the many fun activities being planned by the PTA.

Become a Supporter of the PTA: if you can’t make the meetings but would still like to help out when possible then we can add your details to our email database. We will only make contact when we need small amounts of your time for fundraising projects or social events.

Contact the PTA any time via email [email protected]We look forward to seeing you, and thank you again for your support!

Old Boys' Association

The Southland Boys’ High School Old Boys’ Association was first formed in 1902. 

It is reported in the 1903 Southlandian ‘that the prime feature would be to hold an annual reunion of ex-pupils, and that it is expected that various means will be devised for benefiting the School and its pupils.’

And so it has been. Reunions are held throughout New Zealand, with a national committee based in Invercargill, and branches in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown/Lakes District.

Each year, two Old Boys’ Association Scholarships are awarded: $1,500 to the Dux, and $1,000 to the Proxime Accessit. Other scholarships and awards, funded privately by individual Old Boys’, are also presented.

Southland Boys’ High Trust Foundation

The Southland Boys’ High Trust Foundation was established in 1996 to bring together Old Boys’ and friends of the school, to generate funds for educational purposes not covered by Ministry of Education funding.
