What a year 2022 has been. A year that started in the most peculiar way as we welcomed new boys into the House under the new “red” restrictions. Through it all, one thing remained consistent, and that was the aroha and sense of community of the School House wha¯nau. I particularly want to acknowledge our international boarders who have not been able to make it home for more than three years. What resilience and courage they have shown to be able to see it through. We just hope now that with the border being open, you may be able to pop home more easily. The year started on the last Sunday of January with us welcoming our new Year 9 students and their families. Bright-eyed and bushy- tailed, Toby Adams, Gabriel Beavan, Sam Cook, Matua Cox, George Dale, Gus McKenzie, Nic McQuilkin, Charlie Peacock, Oliver Simpson and Louis Tapper were ready to take on the challenges and new adventures secondary school and boarding has to offer. This welcome involved military precision and planning, with each family being given 15 minutes to drop their son off, help him unpack and exit the House before

the next family started their turn. I am amazed at how quickly the boys have settled into their roles within the House and what a great job they have all done throughout the year. You have made a great start to your time here and the best is yet to come. Your journey has begun and, before you know it, we will be farewelling you in four years. Other young men we welcomed into the School House community this year were Sam Shelling and Daniel Wyber. Sam joined us in Year 13 from Waimea College and Daniel joined us in Year 12, transferring from King's College. Both boys quickly settled into House life and, before we knew it, had become true School House men. We also had the pleasure of welcoming back Matthew O’Connor into Year 12. Matthew had returned home to Singapore at the end of his Year 10 year. What was so impressive about Matthew was that he never actually left us and, amazingly, completed all his school work from Singapore for the past 18 months. MOTHER'S DAY HIGH TEA To celebrate Mother’s Day, School House hosted its annual Mother’s Day High Tea in the House library. It was nice to be able to host the event as we were unsure about possible Covid-19 disruptions. Luckily, the restrictions changed and we welcomed parents back into the House. This is an event to thank the mothers for all that they do for their sons. The boys helped to set up the library and then served tea and coffee. The mothers were able to sit back, relax, be pampered and enjoy the company of others. A good time was had by all.
