With the school closure this week, all sports fixtures are cancelled for this coming weekend 20th and 21st August. For any queries please contact Lincoln Doull, Director of Sport.

17 August

This afternoon, all Havelock North schools met with the District Health Board to discuss the ongoing response to the potential campylobacter outbreak. The District Health Board advice is that primary and intermediate schools should remain closed to reduce the risk of secondary infection and further spread of the illness. Accordingly Hereworth will now reopen on Monday 22nd August and we will be contacting all our parents via email shortly.

Joint statement from Havelock North school Principals

15 August

We have been advised by the Ministry of Education that due to the continued risk of the campylobacter outbreak the school should not remain open. Given the seriousness of the situation we are following their advice and closing the school until Thursday 18 August. Whilst we fully appreciate that this two day closure will cause disruption for our families, our primary concern is for the well-being of the boys and staff, and we thank you for your understanding.

14 August

Hereworth is open today as normal. Robust Health & Safety policies are in place to minimise the spread of any communicable illness within the school including regular sanitising, providing bottled water for our students, and turning off the water fountains. We do not have any unwell students in our Boarding House. More information will be posted as the situation develops.

12 August

The Gastroenteritis bug circling through the school has affected the sports teams for this weekend’s fixtures. With such a shortage of players, the following teams will not play this weekend:
Rugby: 12th Grade, 11th Grade Green, 10th Grade
Hockey: 3rd XI
Many of the available boys have been drafted into other teams as cover, and your son knows if he is one of those boys so please check with him before heading out for your games this weekend.

11 August

We have had several boys unwell with vomiting and diarrhoea over the past few days. To avoid further spread of this illness within the school please follow the Ministry of Health guidelines and keep your boys at home for 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.

Heritage & Special Character

We treasure our links with the past – and the boys, as a result, build a sense of pride and an understanding of their special place in the school’s history. Not every school has the same depth of history that we do and once a Hereworth Old Boy – always a Hereworth Old Boy – the friendships the boys forge whilst here will remain with them for life.

 

Our Heritage

The story of Hereworth is also the story of two other schools: Heretaunga, founded in Hastings in 1882 before moving to our current site in 1913; and Hurworth, founded in Wanganui in 1901. These two schools merged in 1927 to form Hereworth.

The founder and first Headmaster (Mr HE Sturge) wanted the school to educate the whole boy, where classroom programmes gave boys an opportunity for them to be boys, to learn about and appreciate their environment and to be able to serve their community with all the qualities and traits of a gentleman who knows right from wrong.

The qualities we continue to develop in the present generation of boys attending Hereworth are based on traditional values. It is never too young to learn these skills and the school expects all boys from Year 1 to Year 8 to be caring, thoughtful and inquisitive and to serve others. The school also encourages boys to be boys and to enjoy the challenges of their youth.

Special Character

We are an Anglican School and under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Waiapu. Our special character is what sets us apart from many and revolves around our Chapel – the St James’ Chapel and our spirituality in the Christian faith.

boarding-content-img_05

The Chapel is an iconic part of our school and stands proudly on the Chapel Hill. The Chapel, which was opened in 1960, was gifted by the HB Williams family in memory of their son JN Williams who was an Old Boy of Hereworth who was killed in action in 1942 whilst serving for the RNZAF.

Our Chaplain leads daily services for all staff and students and we also hold regular family services throughout the term that all boys are expected to attend. Our Old Boy community uses the Chapel for weddings and baptisms.

Diocese of Waiapu

Hereworth is proud to have a long and strong association with the Anglican Diocese of Waiapu, dating back to 1927.
