Dubbed by online running magazine Running Plus as “the little event with the big heart” the Peak Trail Blazer began as a modest fundraising outing for the School organised by three parents who had youngsters at the school but has grown to the stage where there are now more than 1000 people taking part in the competitive and recreational walks and runs. It has also appeared firmly on the running calendar and has attracted top athletes.
People can run or walk and there is a short and a long course – there’s the ability for people of all ages and fitness levels to take part. Come join in the fun and get fit at the same time.
The event raises money for the school and also 1-2 local charities within the community each year.
At the heart of our school are the children. Many of our school families have made the active choice to live in Hawkes Bay, a stunning part of New Zealand. Havelock North is a special place, nestled at the foot of iconic Te Mata Peak. We are lucky and proud to be the school that’s right here in the midst of Havelock North – a great little village.
The NZ Curriculum is the basis for our learning at HNP. Core subjects of Maths and Literacy (reading and writing) are at the heart of everything we do, in addition to the Key Competencies, Values, Theme and Inquiry Learning.
Sport at HNPS is divided into three main areas: Physical Education (P.E), Team Sports (Extra-curricular activities) and inter-school sport.
We offer a range of extra-curricular sports to encourage all students to be a part of a sports team during the school year.
