Extracurricular Programme

Various sports and extracurricular activities take place throughout the week as we utilise the incredible space and beauty of the Lourensford estate. We have huge open fields, picturesque farm dams, immaculate lawns and forest trails right on our doorstep.

Our Extracurricular programme after school includes fitness, nature awareness, netball, soccer, trail-running, art, drama and more.  We also, in conjunction with parent volunteers and external service providers, offer mountain-biking, yoga, music, Ruggakidz, surfing, MiniChess, Playball, amongst other things.

In maintaining the Montessori methodology where we ‘Follow the Child’, we have created a programme that is designed around the learners themselves, and what they are interested in – this programme supports the concept of “Learner-Driven Activities”.

Newberry House competes with other similar-sized schools in the area in the more traditional sports such as soccer and netball.

Students are encouraged to participate in lifestyle sports off campus and to share their successes and experiences with the school.

Newberry House holds an Annual Athletics/Sports Day for all learners from 18 months to 18 years, and all parents and staff are very involved in the fun and games.
