Don House

He aha te mea nui o te ao [What is the most important thing in the world?]
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata [It is the people, it is the people, it is the people]

The Don House family would like to extend you a warm welcome to life in Don House at Waitaki Boys High School and we look forward to our association with you over the time of your son’s secondary schooling and beyond.

Staff at Don House all have a vested interest in your boys and will endeavour to make their transition from home life to Hostel life as seamless as possible. If you have any queries regarding your son’s time in Don House, please feel free to contact any of the Staff at Don House. The team leaders all have families of their own, so know what it is like to create a welcoming and positive environment for your son.

I am proud of the role that Don House has within Waitaki Boys High School and I am excited about the opportunities Hostel life will create for your son.

The staff at Don House are the protectors and nurturers of our next generation. It is our responsibility to ensure that the boys that pass through here are equipped to become a future leaders, to be responsible, able and confident. We want them to model the values of Don House in all aspects of their daily life and to achieve their full potential in academic, cultural, sporting and social activities.

It is the hope of the Don House family that your son will make the most of the opportunities afforded to him to make his time here enjoyable and memorable and that your son will leave here as an educated all-rounder of outstanding character.
