Taonga / Trophies

HPC-OBA – Taonga / Trophies

Over the past years, Old boys who have achieved excellence within the NZ sport scene on a national and international level have donated their Taonga ie (Rugby Jerseys, League, Touch, Softball and other Taonga including Trophies) back to the Kura.

The HPC-OBA would like to develop a data base record of these Taonga identifying when they were presented to the Kura and by whom.

We are keen to have these Taonga digitally recorded along with their photos displayed here on our website for all to see and enjoy. Hopefully It will keep inspiring old boys to maintain this practice of donating Taonga so that current students are inspired to replicate these achievements.

In order for the Executive to maintain accurate information related to these Taonga, we ask that old boys who have donated their Taonga please fill out the following Form below and send it back to us as best as you can.
