Our 2021 Speech Day took place on the green expanse of our main field, with honoured guests, our management and staff, matric parents, our grade 8, 9, 11 boys and grade 12 Knights in attendance; a truely wonderful sight to see so many of our Northwood family together again.
We were honoured to have Mr Khalipha Cele, Northwood Old Boy, Head Scout for Cricket SA and Head of Leadership Development as our Guest Speaker. There were many special moments throughout the morning as our outgoing Head Prefect and deputies were honoured for their service, and our Class of 2021 were recognised for their dedication and excellence in the classroom.
Mr Viljoen also took the opportunity to honour a special guest, DPHS Headmaster Mr Barry Wilson, on his upcoming retirement, and thanked him for the many years of service and excellence that he has given to education.
The morning ended with the announcement of Head Prefects and Deputies, with a rousing war cry as our Class of 2021 enter into the last days of their school career with Finals beginning on Wednesday.
We wish them all the best and look forward to seeing them ring the school bell as they exit as Knights at the end of their exams.
