Grammar Boys

Television (Full Length) – 2003

Secondary school Auckland Grammar is a local landmark, with a reputation for academic and sporting excellence. This documentary surveys the state school's traditions; the "ways of Grammar" include academic streaming, the prefect system, and sport (rowing trials and the traditional 1st XV match against King's are featured). It also touches on the lengths parents will go to enable their children to attend the prestigious boys' school. Old boys interviewed include cricketer Dion Nash, All Blacks Doug Howlett and Grant Fox, and broadcaster John Hawkesby. 

To tell you the truth I bought into the zone so my son could attend Grammar. [...] You do come out of here with [the attitude], “we are grammar boys: everything is possible.
– Broadcaster and Grammar old boy John Hawkesby
