About the Bulletin

The Punahou Bulletin is published and financed by Punahou School, and is circulated free to more than 38,250 alumni, parents and friends of the School. The Punahou Bulletin is issued four times a year: fall, winter, spring and summer.

The Punahou Bulletin began publication (Volume I, Number I) in September 1953, as a bimonthly news magazine of the Punahou Alumni Association and the Punahou PTA. This new publication was an experimental combination of the Alumni Bulletin (first published in 1926) and the Lokahian (a parent news monthly). In the fall of 1970, the Bulletin went to a quarterly format. In 2006, the Bulletin first appeared online.
