Nova Pioneer North Riding is expanding

Nova Pioneer Schools for Innovators and Leaders is proud to announce that the Nova Pioneer North Riding campus is expanding for 2018! The 1778 square meter expansion will quadruple the size of the existing campus and will enable the school to serve even more future leaders in the greater Roodepoort and Fourways communities.

Located on the secure and prestigious Jackal Creek Golf Estate on Boundary Road in North Riding, the school opened its doors in January 2017 catering for both Pre-Primary and Primary school students. The school is part of the Nova Pioneer Education Group, a growing network of independent schools across South Africa and Kenya.

“As an organization that prides itself on helping shape young innovators and leaders, we are excited to have the opportunity to serve and engage even more families in the greater Roodepoort community, just as we are doing across our schools in Midrand, Ormonde, and Paulshof,” said Chinezi Chijioke, CEO of the Nova Pioneer Education Group.

The Nova Pioneer academic model is based on a foundation of rigorous enquiry-based learning, which empowers students to drive their learning experiences in a collaborative way and not simply be on the receiving end of pre-packaged content. “It’s all about creating an environment and providing the support that enables young minds to develop their natural sense of innovation, to be curious about the world around them, and to think critically about how they can help shape the future,” continued Chijioke.

Like all other Nova Pioneer schools in their South African network, Nova Pioneer North Riding will teach the Cambridge curriculum. This approach, together with the added advantage that Nova Pioneer operates schools in both East and South Africa, serves to open up global opportunities for students.

“Much like the Nova Pioneer team who come from various parts of the world, we teach our students that as much as they are part of the community in which they live, they are also part of a highly-connected global community,” added Samantha McMillan, Dean of Instruction at Nova Pioneer North Riding.

To experience the Nova Pioneer model first-hand and engage directly with Nova Pioneer leadership, attend Nova Pioneer North Riding’s Open Day on Saturday, 29 July 2017. For more information, email Carina Sloane at [email protected]
