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.

Senior School Years 7-8

The Senior years at Hereworth are built around the cornerstones of the school: Academic, Sport, Culture, Social and Boarding. The curriculum becomes increasingly specialised with Literacy, Mathematics and Social Science joined by classes in Technology, Art, Science, Music, Drama, Hauora and Languages (Te Reo Māori and Japanese) with our specialist teaching staff.

Hereworth boys are very well prepared for life at College or High School. They are used to moving between classes and working with a wide range of teachers, and their Year 7 and 8 exams help them learn the invaluable skills of reading and responding to questions and effectively managing their time in an exam situation.

Staff are focused on developing the whole boy – the learner; the sportsman; the chorister; the musician; the global citizen…the list is endless but we strive to equip boys with the skills and strategies they will need to thrive beyond the Hereworth gates.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Opting out is not an option for Hereworth’s senior boys; they are all expected to try everything, from auditioning for the choir to taking part in Oral English and Speech competitions, and representing the school in sport. This gives boys the opportunity to be seen in their personal area of strength by our teaching staff who also lead these extra activities.

Leadership

Leadership skills are developed and while being made a Prefect or House Captain in Year 8 is the ultimate accolade, most boys will step into a leadership role as a squad leader, or as a dorm leader in the boarding house. Boys who have passion or leadership in a specific area get the opportunity to work as a ‘manager’ in that area. Badges and Colours are awarded. They are highly sought after, and worn on blazers as symbols of recognition and achievement.

Boarding Experience

All boys in Year 7 and 8 have a two week annual boarding experience which gives them an insight into living away from home, and for those who will board at college or high school it is the ideal preparation.

Hereworth Pride

Our expectations of Hereworth boys are high. Manners are paramount, self-discipline is instilled and uniform is worn with pride. Competition is considered healthy and success is celebrated: Hereworth boys know how lucky they are to attend such a unique school!
