On Saturday 28 May we celebrated our school and heritage as we welcomed many old friends and new to Northwood for a day of fellowship and sport vs Hilton College. The support shown by the community was evident with over 5000 people attending this event.
The day started off with the delicious smell of bacon and boerewors rolls being braaied by our Northwood Fundraising parents, who did a sterling job of helping to keep the crowds well fed. Our Northwood Moms ran two hospitality Tea Gardens which were well attended and much appreciated by visitors to the school. Various vendors also supported the school offering a variety of treats and food options. Once again Northwood offered a beer garden, hosted by the popular George based in Umhlanga which was very well attended by our Old Boys and which we look forward to including in future Old Boy Day events!
Our 1st XV Rugby score was 19-10 in the visitors favour, with the Northwood 1st hockey team ending their match on a high with a 4 – 2 win. Thank you to everyone for their unconditional support of Northwood and the Knights.
