About us

Pre-school

Welcome to our Pre-school, where the Northland Nyonis have all the fun! Our Pre-school starts with our Grade RRR Robins who go about their day with the compassionate encouragement of their teacher, Miss Frenzel. The Pelican class of Grade RR's can often be heard joyfully singing from around the school grounds with Mrs. Vardy leading the song. In Grade R the Owl class meet a different character from Letterland weekly under the care of Mrs. Merredew, as they lay down the alphabet foundations for reading and writing.





Foundation Phase

If you think the fun stops in pre-school, you would be wrong! Grade 1 is the place to be with Mrs. Searle, where her passion for the environment and recycling combines with a love for stories and learning. Mrs. Houghting's Grade 2 and 3 class can always be heard...they're as loud  as their fun-loving teacher...hear them roar!






Intermediate Phase

Our Grade 4 class love to perform! From gumboot dances to poems in assembly, Mrs. Chitopo and her class keep us all entertained. The Grade 5 and 6 class are the leaders of the school, always ready to lend a helping hand, and take on new challenges under Mrs. Uys' gentle guidance. They are an enthusiastic, hard-working and fun bunch, who take it upon themselves to help the younger grades when the opportunities arise.





Senior Phase

Coming soon! In 2021 we will be adding Grade 7 to our list of classes offered at Northland School, completing our primary school. Watch this space...

SCHOOL MOTTO 

The school motto is “More than Conquerors” based on the Bible verse from Romans 8:35-39 New International Version (NIV):

 

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
