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.
Update 16 April
Preparations are well under way for this coming celebration. Registrations will be opened within the next six weeks – both online (from a Centenary website and our Facebook page) or via paper. Information about this will be sent out next term.
100 voices project – your help needed!
This project is a part of the Pukekohe High School Centenary year. The aim is to interview and film 100 selected ex-students to provide information about their memories of attending PHS and what they have gone on to achieve in their life after attending PHS. These people will be profiled through an image and linking QR code during the centenary and also as a permanent record on the school website as an ongoing archive of achievers at Pukekohe High School.
For this we need nominations of people to select from. Nomination is through a form at Microsoft Forms or use the QR code. If a paper copy is required then this can be picked up from the school office or emailed to you. Email us at email@example.com.
Please note that not all nominations will necessarily be a part of the final 100 voices.
We look forward to reading about some amazing things about our Alumni.

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.
