An unsafe concrete wasteland has been transformed into a hive of activity as Hawera High School's $100,000 multi-use sportsground begins to take shape.

The funding for the project came from the Pelorus Trust.

It is the largest amount the group has ever awarded.

School sport and arts co-ordinator Jan Roberts said the complex would host four netball courts, five tennis courts, a hockey training pitch and a 200-metre practice running track.

''We want it to complement the TSB Hub and offer our students something special in 2013.''

She said all going well the grounds should be complete before Christmas.
