Project Academia MMXV

Mr McAvoy surprised the students and staff in assembly with a rather different style from his usual smart tie and jacket! The boys who sold ticket booklets last week got to choose an outfit from our costume room for him to wear – good choice boys!! Last Friday also saw a Hot Chocolate, Juice and Biscuit Bar set up in the foyer for the boys who had sold booklets – the chilly weather was perfect for this!  All money raised will go towards classroom upgrades in 2015, and you may be the lucky winner of some fantastic cash prizes!  Please support this initiative and keep buying tickets!

International Speaker, Journalist and Old Boy, Rod Smith Visits Northwood

Northwood old boy and internationally known family therapist, Rod Smith, addressed our students in a moving assembly today.  Rod, who now resides in America, is well known for his “You and Me” newspaper column which is read in over 130 countries and which is published every week in The Mercury.  He fondly remembers his grade 9 year at Northwood (previously Beachwood and Northlands) when he discovered his passion and talent for writing which set him on his lifelong career path.  Rod was previously awarded the Circle of Valour Award in 2013 in acknowledgement of his service to the community, and continues to be an example to our Squires and Knights of Northwood.
