The last four years have seen many changes to the NGHS brand, in terms of the overall look and feel and portrayal of the school to the local and greater Durban community.
The Marketing Department has refined its monthly publication, NGHS news, by going digital and further develops relationships with sponsors and newspapers and growing its Facebook page ‘likes’ and reach.
The school’s presence in local media has increased dramatically with the strategic release of school stories throughout the year. This ensures that NGHS is certainly being talked about favourably in the community. None of this would have been possible without the constant ‘feed’ of stories from the Marketing Executives, staff and parents who keep in touch during the course of the year.
The Marketing Department profiles all activities at the school including academics, sport, arts and culture, leadership, our staff, outreach projects and the environment.

Our indigenised gardens are looking better than ever with exotics being removed and indigenous items planted. Not a day goes by when our school is not being painted, cleaned or repaired in some way.
Our cleaning staff work hard to ensure a spotless environment and we congratulate the team on being a finalist in the Kimberley Clark Cleanest School’ Awards.
