Northwood 1st Team Hockey Draw 1-1- vs Kearsney

The Northwood 1st XI travelled to Kearsney for the match on Saturday the 17th March. The derby game started as predicted with both teams coming out firing, however it was Liam M from Kearsney who thunder-bolted a shot into the Northwood backboard around 10 minutes into the match. This woke Northwood up even more and not long after that, Zinzan G reversed pressed, turned-over a Kearsney defender and seconds later linked up with Chris S to finish what he started by diving and deflecting the ball in at the back post. The second half saw a scrappier affair taking place, and with heightened frustration levels of the players, the game didn’t find another level. Even after Campbell D had the chance of the game which Taine B miraculously saved and Northwood too had a chance that saw the Kearsney upright rattled with just 3 minutes remaining, the game played out to a 1-1 draw. Well done to both teams.

Northwood’s “So You Think You Can Sing?”

After many years of fantastic, large-scale musical shows, this year the much anticipated Northwood Musical takes on a somewhat different track.

In celebration of the considerable amount of yet-to-be-discovered talent that Durban North has to offer, Northwood presents “So You Think You Can Sing?” – a singing competition open to Durban North learners in grades 6 to 12.

This event gives learners the opportunity to learn, experience and of course, perform in the same large-scale production that Northwood has become known for.

Singers will compete in front of venerable and knowledgeable judges, well known in the Durban Music Scene – John Ellis (front man Durban Band, Tree 63), Tori Du Plessis (songstress and performer), Rosa de Castro (Head of Vocal Vibes Training Studio), as well as guest judges – all for incredible prizes.

Singers advancing to the later stages will receive one-on-one coaching with industry leading professionals (including Northwood’s own Andrew Sutton!) and gain invaluable skills.

Proudly sponsored by the Campus of Performing Arts Durban, Vocal Vibes Training Studio and Toms Music Durban, final prizes include microphones, recording time and scholarships!

When asked about the change in format, Producer Russell Scott had this to say: “We really wanted to open the wonderful experience of the Northwood Musical to the greater community, making it a truly Durban North event, all the while keeping the same top-notch large scale musical production value we are proud of!”

Preliminary auditions take place on the 12th & 13th March for Grades 6 – 9 and on the 15th & 16th March for Grades 10 – 12, starting at 3pm at Northwood, and are open to Grade 6 – 12 learners from all local primary and girls’ high schools. A R60 entry fee will be required.
