The Circle of Valour Award is intended to profile the success of the many Northlands, Beachwood and Northwood Old Boys who make us proud, and is the pinnacle of achievement for those who attended any of the three schools.
An award winner will be recognized for his achievements at the highest level since leaving school. He will have achieved iconic status in his particular field of expertise and the community of North Durban.
Whilst having made his mark in the world, he is the type of person who remains humble and often goes unnoticed despite his excellent achievements. In short, a Circle of Valour Award winner will espouse the very values that were taught to him during his days at School. His behaviour and achievements will set an aspirational example to the community, Old Boys, and especially current pupils of Northwood.
