About us

HISTORY AND SITUATION 

In 2017, Mario Georgiou, a business owner in St Lucia, established the founding Board of Directors for Northland School. Northland School is an English-medium, co- educational, Christian, independent school with the purpose of providing a high quality of education

 

Northland School is situated in the Monzi Estate opposite the Monzi Golf Club, between St Lucia and Mtubatuba on the Zululand North Coast. Monzi is a farming community with many sugar cane farms and small holdings in the area.

 

It is on the doorstep of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage Park, renowned for its beautiful beaches and game reserves. Nearby town, St Lucia, is a pristine small town with much to offer in the way of tourism activities and educational opportunities for our learners. 

 

The school grounds and facilities are large and well-designed to provide a beautiful environment for children in which to be educated. The school facilities will include a large library, full cricket oval, swimming pool, sports fields and tennis courts.

GOING FORWARD 

The school has introduced Grades RRR-5 in 2019 with our opening assembly taking place on the 14th of January. We hope to continue growing to add a high school section in the future. 

 

The school has registered with the Association of Christian School International (ACSI) and will eventually be registering with the Independent Examinations Board (IEB)

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.
