Drama and Debating


Every year Southland Boys’ and Southland Girls’ combine talents to present both Junior and Senior Productions.

Shakespeare Day is an initiative that has been run for several years at Southland Boys’.  Boys dress up in all things Shakespeare.  House points are up for grabs for Best Costume, Monologue and and Musical.


Boys with an ability in this area are invited to join debating.  Interschools with Waitaki Boys and Kings include debating.  Debating is always a challenge and is a very good skill to learn.

Southland Boys' High School


Thank you for your understanding and continued support through this difficult and rapidly changing time. Changes have been imposed to School term times and the school holidays will now run from Monday 30 March to Tuesday 14 April 2020.   Term 2 will begin on Wednesday 15 April with distance learning, the school site will remain closed. We will be supporting student learning from home in the following ways:
  • through online learning platforms which will be communicated directly by the students' teachers
  • Students need to ensure that they have access to their school email address
  • provision of a learning pack for students in year 7-10
  • making adjustments to the NCEA programme by adjusting the type and number of credits available. Specific details of this will follow from individual departments.
We will continue to update you with changes as soon as we can. Stay home, Stay Safe, Stay Strong
