For over one hundred years boys have enjoyed a remarkable education here in the heart of beautiful South Canterbury. The boys of today are no different, living, growing and learning in our very special school.
The sign over the gate claims that Waihi is “A Boy’s Education for Life”, and it is indeed the big picture that we look at when designing an experience that will help the Waihi Boy to grow and develop. The formative years of your son's education are extremely important. The experiences, values and challenges presented to him at this stage are fundamental in helping to shape and determine his views, attitudes, dispositions and ultimate success for his future years.
In a world where traditional values are being constantly challenged and eroded, we believe that an education rooted in a solid Christian values system is as relevant now as it ever has been. The week starts with Chapel setting the tone for our week ahead, placing emphasis on good manners, courtesy, considerate behaviour, graciousness and respect.
Waihi has high expectations of the boys in terms of academic achievement. Small class sizes, together with high quality, committed staff, many of whom are residential, ensure that we know our boys extremely well and they receive close attention and care.
