The Grade 8 – 12 Valentine’s Dance took place at the Sandbaai Hall on the 16th of February. Everyone looked amazing and fun was had by all! As fun as it is, we will unfortunately not have another dance in the foreseeable future due to high costs and lack of interest. I hope that this changes so that Northcliff House College can host another fun Valentine’s Dance!
Valentine’s Day was an exciting one at Norhtcliff House College this year! At first break there were cupcakes sold and then we had a dance party! At second break the Grade 8’s had to ask one of the Matrics to be their date for the Valentine’s Dance and then the winners of the Best Dressed were announced. Fun was had by all!

The first term of 2018 has come to an end and now is the time to reflect on the achievements of the term as well as the challenges.
We have had some positive changes at NHC this year, including welcoming Mr Gerhard Coetzee as our new Principal. Being the Principal is not an easy job but Mr Coetzee has taken it on and has done a fantastic job!
Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our Grade 1 Teacher, Yolandie Koberzig this term but we are happy to announce that
we have found an excellent replacement in Denay Theunissen who has taken over the Grade 1 class with vigour and
We also have a new Grade 10 – 12 Mathematics teacher, Mr Philip Swanepoel, who has taken the task on with ease and energy.
Lastly, on a very sad note, our precious Administrator, Mari Vorster, left us at the end of the term. Thank you for
all that you have done for us and we will miss you terribly but we know that your entrepreneurial pursuits will be very successful.
On the 13th of February 2015, Northcliff House College held their first Valentine’s Dance at St Peter’s Church Hall. The event was open to all learners from Grade 8 to 12 and great fun was had by all!
A big thank you to the following people: The Matric class for their organisation, Lucie Conradie for help with setting up and for taking such wonderful photographs, Teressa and Francois Jones for their immense help in setting up and providing an expert touch, Gerhard Coetzee for keeping the dancing kids hydrated and fed and Katherine Liefeldt for overseeing the event. We could not have pulled it off without any one of you.
A huge congratulations to Ignatious Matema (Grade 10) who received certificates of merit from the Whalers Athletic Club for The Fastest Time in a 10km Road Race and Best Junior Athlete in the Dangerpoint 10km. We are very proud of you, Ignatious!
