Northcliff High - promoting esports.

Northcliff gamers battling it out for supremacy.
The ability of any club to produce top ranking esports gamers, whether at a private club, at a university club, or at a school club, is based on the club's ability to foster and grow the sport at every level throughout the year.

Northcliff High School is lucky enough to have an educator in charge of their esports club who has the drive, passion and dedication to ensure that the club is successful from year-to-year in the form of Noelene du Toit. However, none of it would be possible without the support of the school's governing body and Principal.

Thus Northcliff High School even has an Annual Esport Interhouse.

The 2018 edition was held on Saturday, 27 January 2018 in which 
50 players from the four 'houses'; Dragoon, Cairn, Pinnacle and Sentinel, participated.

A total of 6 PC titles were played, being; DOTA 2, CS:GO, LOL, STARCRAFT, HEARTSTONE and ROCKET LEAGUE.

The smartphone / Tablet title 'VainGlory' was also played.

Console titles played were: Ultimate Street Fighter on Xbox and Fifa '18 on PlayStation
