An exciting ground breaking initiative for 2020.

In 2020 School House is introducing the Otago Boys Boarding Programme. The programme offers students the chance to develop life and career skills and provides them with the opportunity to try things they normally wouldn’t be able to do. The junior programme focuses on character education and personal development but by the time the boys reach the senior school the focus shifts towards vocational training. The programme is designed to be a rich and rewarding experience for all School House students by targeting their personal interests and likes.  For Yr9 and 10 students the boarding programme runs for the duration of the year, while in the senior school the programme finishes at the end of term one (yr 11 term two) to allow the boys to focus on their studies in the second half of the year. Otago Boy's High School is the first boarding school in the country to offer an initiative such as this. Exciting times ahead!  Please read the attachment for more information.
