Although I do like the school itself and the friends I surround myself with, I still feel as if I'm in an uncomfortable environment. It's my final year and by now I would have thought that my fellow class mates would have matured but everytime someone says "gay" or something like that, I hear giggles as if it's funny to be homosexual, and that bugs me a lot. Recently my teacher was talking about these two gay people in the book we are reading and referred to them as "moffies" which is a very derogatory term to me. My point is that Northwood is a great school in terms of education and learning but it feels as if boys are uneducated on how hard it is to grow up gay and be faced with the hate we have to go through, and that's why it's 4 stars and not 5
Hello everyone my school is Northwood high school and it's a boys high school located in Durban North. My school is a passionate school and all the learners and staff there are passionate about what they do at Northwood. When students go yo Northwood they feel inspired to do what is good because of the leadership that the school instilled. Northwood exells through academics,sport and social enrichment in a christian enviroment and it's aim is to turn young squires into knights. Northwood's academics are very good and each and every one of us(pupils) try our best to not only represent ourselves but the Northwood badge. Northwood's sport is exceedingly good and as we run on to the field we as the blue army feel an adrenaline rush and as we play we know that we have got an army behind us that is supporting us and is cheering on for us. I myself have learnt a lot at Northwood like how to be independent, vigilant and I have also learnt to fly my flag high.
For Northwood always...
#the knights are coming
