E ngā mano, e ngā rahi, ngā hau e whā. Tēnei te mihi maioha ki a koutou katoa. Nau mai, haere mai ki te reo pōwhiri o Te Kura o Kā Taitama o Ōtautahi. Mai te whenua ki rangi, mai te rangi ki te whenua, tihei mauri ora.

To the thousands, to the many, to the four winds (to everyone). We greet you all. We extend the welcoming greetings of Christchurch Boys' High School. From the earth to the heavens, from the heavens to the earth (encompassing all things), let there be life (an introduction into the "words of life" that will follow).

Christchurch Boys’ High School falls within the rohe of Ngāi Tūāhuriri who advise us at a strategic level.

Our active Whānau Group include families from a wide variety of New Zealand iwi and they meet regularly along with a member of the school’s senior management to monitor and support the progress the school is making with its Māori students.

All whānau are welcome to attend Whānau Hui which are held monthly at the school.

Please contact Steve Fraser, Senior Master with responsibilities for Māori achievements.
