Ti­maru boys’ high school

The out­stand­ing en­vi­ron­ment that Ti­maru Boys’ High School has pro­vided for me, my peers and those boys in the 139 years since the school was founded has al­lowed me to grow into the young man I am to­day. All those who walk un­der the Love­lock Oak are given the op­por­tu­ni­ties needed to dis­cover their true po­ten­tial and to grow in an en­cour­ag­ing and pos­i­tive en­vi­ron­ment.

Be­gin­ning my last year and hav­ing the hon­our of be­ing named Head

Boy and Head Boarder is a chal­lenge I look for­ward to un­der­tak­ing. Ev­ery

step of the way I have been sup­ported by both my fam­ily at home and the fam­ily that grew around me at school. The broth­er­hood that forms be­tween the boys in school and Thomas House changed ev­ery­thing for me as I came to trust those around me. As the last year of my school­ing life is upon me I am aim­ing to make a dif­fer­ence, to al­low the al­ready pros­per­ous en­vi­ron­ment to grow even more, and to sup­port ed­u­ca­tion that matches the values I hold paramount. I am also seek­ing to spread the sup­port to oth­ers in 2019 which has helped me and so many more pre­vi­ously.

‘I am aim­ing to make a dif­fer­ence, to al­low the al­ready pros­per­ous en­vi­ron­ment to grow even more.’
