NHS now a Sport Focus School
For over 135 years, NHS has played a fundamental role in building and nurturing young minds and in doing so it has contributed significantly to the skills and job market of this country.
Whilst the school has undergone many changes over the recent years, it has none-the-less grown from its humble beginnings in 1882, into a school with a proud reputation for consistent academic and sporting excellence.
Since 2011, when Mr Gary de Jager started his career as a sport educator at NHS, he believed that NHS has a much greater potential than to be just a normal school with sport, competing at an average level. He strongly believed that with effort, investment and support, NHS can be transformed into one of the first black sport development academies in South Africa.
Most often than not our grade 8 learners come from backgrounds of no experience in sport whatsoever. Effectively our coaches begin training these players from scratch at u14 level as they do not even have basic ball skills. Therefore at NHS we need to do many hours of development to be able to get these players to a level of competitiveness.
Newcastle High School celebrated the academic efforts of its Top Ten members at a fun-filled breakfast at the Grey Goose Game Lodge.
