NORTHCLIFF – Northcliff High School took first place at the annual A league inter-high gala.

It was a day of team spirit and tough competition when Northcliff competed against St Peter’s College, last year’s winners, Crawford College Sandton, Trinity House High School and Fourways High School in the gala held at Ellis Park swimming pool.

Northcliff has won the A league trophy 15 times, more than any other school.

Northcliff’s cheerleaders also took first place for best dance and second place for team spirit.

“We are immensely proud of our students who worked and trained hard for the gala,” said marketing manager, Jacqui Todaro. She also thanked the teachers, staff and parents for their tireless contribution to the event.
