This is the core of your child’s education. Differentiation takes place so that special attention is given to strong learners as well as learners that find learning a challenge. Dual medium classes from grade 4 helps to develop both languages (English/Afrikaans Home Language as well as English/Afrikaans First Additional Language).
It improves linguistic skills in both languages and ensures better symbols at high school. Also tertiary achievement in Mathematics starts here.
A Top 10 Merit Awards Ceremony takes place annually where ex-pupils of Newton are guest speakers. The top 10 learners enjoy an annual Top 10 Academic Tour. Due to Covid-19 this was shelved and in 2020 only a grade 7 Top 10 award ceremony was hosted.
