2021 PHS Centenary
This year Pukekohe High School is celebrating 100 years since opening as Pukekohe Technical School in 1921. We are very excited to invite all our old students, teachers, staff and the wider community to join us in celebrating this milestone achievement with us throughout 2021.
School is Open!
We acknowledged the day of opening on February 3, 1921, with bell ringing ceremony with the old school bell, which has been beautifully renovated and reinstalled in the bell tower of the library. This was attended by a number of past and present teachers and students as well as three principals.
