2016 Head Boys

Congratulations to Ben Malpas and William Moffett, our Head Boys for 2016
Ben Malpas

 All my life I have lived in the small rural community of Maraekakaho, which is located about 20 minutes from Hastings, and consists of not much more than a handful of houses, a bar/cafe, and a primary/intermediate school with around 150 pupils ranging
from years 1-8.

 As you can imagine, moving to Hastings Boys' High School for year 9 was quite a different experience, and being the country kid that didn't know many people certainly wasn't the most comfortable position to be in. However, with the supportive environment provided by all the staff at Hastings Boys' High School, and the good nature of all the boys I encountered, school became a great place and I found myself genuinely wanting to attend.  I thoroughly enjoyed the new people, facilities and experiences I hadn't had an opportunity to participate in before.

While at Hastings Boys' High School I became involved with rugby, squash and cricket. This meant I was introduced to a wide variety of boys, all from different backgrounds, forming strong bonds and remaining good friends with many to this day. 

I believe that where I am today is a reflection of the atmosphere created by the staff and students of Hastings Boys' High School.  This is why it is my goal as

Co-Head Boy to ensure this environment remains for future and present students to enjoy as much as I have.

I began my Hastings Boys' High School journey in year 10 and have since done a lot to make up for the lost time. 

I consider myself to be a true Akina student and in my last year want to strive to give back to a place that has given me so much.

Being a keen “Weekend Warrior” for the 3rd XV Rugby Team keeps me busy in the winter.  Whereas in the summer, outside of school, I am a competitive Show Jumper and have received an Honours Tie for having represented the country in Columbia, South Africa, and England.  I am also the captain of our Senior Debating team and have achieved Cultural Colours for my efforts.

Last year I studied Chemistry, History, Maths, English, and Economics, gaining an Excellence Endorsement in NCEA Level one and two. I was also the top academic student in year 10, 11, and 12.
