PARNELL HOUSE -our place                                 Boarding at King’s College
  Our History
                                                         At King’s College there is one girl’s and five
  Parnell House was named after the                      boy’s Boarding Houses. The Houses are:
  Grammar School, which was established in
  1855 on Ayr Street, Parnell. The Grammar               Selwyn House: Mr Kevin Put
  School operated until 1893 (three years
  before King's College was established by               Parnell House: Mr Harry Wichman
  Graham Bruce).
                                                         School House: Mr Dan Dyer
  King’s College originally began with only
  two Houses. School House was for boarders              St John’s House: Mr Daryl Williams
  who arrived by train at the start of term and
  returned trained home again at the end of              Middlemore House: Mrs Nichola Hayes
  term. Town House was for day-boys, most of
  whom arrived by train from the city.                   Te Puutake Lodge: Mr Paul Watts

  With further increase in numbers, St John’s            There is one girl’s and four boy’s Day
  and Parnell Houses were established. The               Houses.
  three boarding Houses were all
  accommodated in army barracks style
  buildings for many years where conditions
  were very harsh.
  The present site, up the Drive, was opened
  in 1969. There has been considerable
  rearrangement of the House layout since
  that time. At one stage the present common-
  room served as the prep-room and library.

  Our Crest

  The Cross associates the House with Parnell
  (home of Anglicanism in Auckland) and the
  three stars (Estoiles) used elsewhere on
  King's Coats of Arms (The College / St
  John's / Selwyn) links it with the Diocesan
  Coat of Arms

  Our Motto

  The Motto is Disciplina Fides Perseverantia.
  This encourages success through personal               "
  and group discipline and perseverance –if at
  first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again.
