It has been a privilege to lead Marsden together in 2017, and we are extremely proud to have placed third, up two places on the previous year. Whangārei Boys’ High School’s up-and-coming premier whanau has had a very strong and pleasing performance in the 2017 lnter-Whanau Competition.
Whanau, syndicate, house – it is known by many names. No matter the title or what’s going on at school, Hobson whanau is a means of identity for all of our boys in green. One of our school’s consistently strong whanaus Hobson puts the pressure on, regularly a cup contender.
It was an incredible honour to be named Whanau Captain of Grey for 2022.
Receiving the whanau captain role this year was an immense honour and I have enjoyed my time in the role. Julian (last year’s whanau captain) managed to lead the boys to victory last year, and with a long history of victory, I knew I had big boots to fill. I will now recap my journey to failure.
This year, as Bledisloe Whanau Captain, has been a privilege and an honour. I knew coming into this position I had a legacy to uphold, the continuation of Bledisloe’s success, coming second to Carruth by half a point in 2016.
