All grade 11’s who do CAT are entered into the Techno Boffin which happens only in the Overberg District and is monitored and created by our curriculum supervisor for CAT – Ms Estelle Goosen. The final mark is comprised of all the Theory marks throughout the year as well as online tests set up by Ms Goosen from Term 1 to Term 3. Gabriel Ellis, one of our Gr 11 CAT learners achieved the highest mark in the district and we are very proud of him.
The Northcliff House College annual concert will be taking place in September this year. The exact date and venue will still be confirmed early next term.
Learners from Grade R – 11 will be participating and this will be the first opportunity for the Grade 11 class to begin their fundraising for their Matric year.
We hope that everyone will be there for a night of music, dancing and fun.
During the first and second term some of our learners took part in the Maths Olympiad (See Gazette, Issue 1, 2018) facilitated by the Grade 10 – 12 Mathematics teacher, Phil Swanepoel.
The learners who took part in the first round were awarded certificates for their participation. Well done! We are very proud of you!

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.
