Funrazor at HNP

On 11 March Sam Elliot bravely had his head shaved in order to raise money for Child Cancer. Tiaan Jarman (a former student of HNI) was chosen to be the one to complete this task as he has recently finished a gruelling treatment for bone cancer himself and is now in remission. Sam has successfully raised over $1600 through his efforts. We are proud Sam and the HNP values that he has exhibited!

Term 1 Message from the Principal

Greetings everyone and a special welcome to those new to Havelock North Primary for the year 2014.  I hope you have all had a fun filled family time during the summer break.

2014 is a busy year for Havelock North Primary. We have started three blended learning classrooms. Plans are in place for the main block to be upgraded some time during the latter part of this year. 

We welcome Mrs Jo Burns who is teaching in Room 1 and Mrs Michelle Waldron who is relieving for Fiona McNeill. Fiona has been appointed as relieving principal at Kereru School.

Our school environment is looking fantastic with all the hard work done by our ground staff of Robin Gray and Peter Newton who worked tirelessly over the holidays to keep the grounds in park like condition.

Our school year commenced on February 3rd with all children returning to a full and rich year, with options including sport, music and drama options along with a busy classroom programme. Information on school happenings will come to you via class blogs and newsletters, team newsletters and the Tuesday Times. Year 5 and Year 6 camps will occur in the first term, with information about these camps sent home soon.

In 2014 importance is being placed on our strategic goals of maintaining high academic achievement, developing well rounded individuals and developing optimum learning environments which will ensure every child to achieve at their maximum potential.

We are looking forward to working with both you and your child on their learning journey this year. If you would like to view our school, please feel free to contact us as we welcome the opportunity to show you around.

Videos and pictures galore!

We have had so many events in the past few weeks, it is hard to keep track of them! Luckily we have captured some amazing photos and even created a spectacular video from some of them. In addition to the photos from the events that have come and gone, we have special video promoting one of our biggest events that is just around the corner - The Peak Trail Blazer. The video is from some extremely creative students (Georgia Maidens, Daisy Phillips, Ella Wright and Ruby Roberts) who have braved some very testing conditions to showcase our sponsors (we love 'em!) and win the competition that demonstrates just how amazing PTB is!

To view and even order photos from the 150th Jubilee, kindly taken by Tim Whittaker, click HERE.
