I want to say that I’ve noticed such a change since Luc joined the school. He often comes home singing a new song he has learnt at school and for the most part, likes to go to school everyday. The teachers he has had – Mrs Button and Mrs Swanepoel have been amazing for him. He loves them. It all means the world to me and I thought I should just write to all of you and thank you. It was a good move and I appreciate it.
When Newton House opened 5 years ago, my boys (then in grade 5) were part of the first intake. Since then, I can only say “we have never looked back”. Our boys have absolutely thrived. From being two years behind their peers, through dedicated teaching, focused learning and smaller classes, our boys have now caught up and exceeded all of our expectations. They have a solid academic grounding, a healthy sporting attitude, confidence with life skills, and, perhaps most importantly, independence. Newton House has made a tremendous difference and the boys are proud of their school and their achievements.
In the few short weeks of this year, not only is Gregory happy about learning new words but he is wanting to read….
This is a completely different child to the child we enrolled, so a huge thank you to Mrs Daniel. This was a huge concern for us and I see that I can put this concern to bed now. I have told Mrs Daniel the same, but I feel you need to know as well.
Thank you to all involved in making Gregory a happy, confident and reading child !!!
Thank you once again for everything you have done for Cam and the enormous difference you have personally made in his life.
We could not have made a better choice even if we wished, Newton house has been the best thing we have done for my child.
Dear Newton House, including teachers, principal and support staff,
Thank you for making such a large, positive contribution to Taine’s life ,
I greatly appreciate it.
Absolutely fantastic school that our son has been attending since the beginning of this year. I would strongly recommend to anyone who has a child with learning difficulties.
The nurturing and loving environment instills confidence thereby allowing them to focus on the foundation of their education.
I would like to express my gratitude for all the understanding, effort and passion that Mrs Mason, Mrs Daniel and Lisa give to Luke and Matthew. You have wonderful teachers, who really care.
Lisa is amazing – such a blessing.
We are so happy at Newton.
Newton House has been an absolute blessing to Michael and we have noted how he has blossomed, grown in confidence and made great strides in his self-discipline. Michael has articulated how he is committed to his learning and in particular his concentration in class and for us this was a key focus area in his development.
We believe that he is ready to revert to the larger class rooms within the mainstream schooling environment and in turn Michael has also expressed a desire to progress to Trinity House.
Dr Staples we are ever grateful to you and the staff at Newton House for the huge impact you had on Michael during a critical phase in his life and schooling. The Newton House philosophy along with its nurturing and traditional value system has been an absolute privilege to be a part of.
When I first approached Newton House I was in dire need of educational aid for my son. Dr Staples paid close attention to my sons issues and requirements – with a concerned heart he opened the Newton House doors and welcomed him into his family.
When my son Ayden started at Newton House in 2013 he was 20 months behind his grade level. Over the past two years that he has been at Newton House the growth and development I have experienced with my son has been phenomenal. Through dedication, time and a tremendous amount of effort from all the staff members involved with Ayden’s education my son has grown from strength to strength.
He is passing all his subjects well, he has blossomed as a child, he is confident in all he does and he is finding it easier to make friends. I cannot thank Dr. Staples and his fine Newton House family enough for the care and effort they have put into my child. The results that they have achieved with him have been out of this world and for that I am eternally grateful.
Ayden and I will miss you all dearly and we wish you all the best for the future. Thank you all so much!!!
The last few years have been rather emotional. Trying to help our little boy find a space where he could, can and will belong.
He is a very complicated little soul, with a few extra difficulties on this journey. We know he can be brilliant in his own way. However trying to find a special teacher, or person that takes the time to understand him, has been one of our hardest challenges.
This year he was put in Mrs Daniel’s Grade 1 class.
My husband and I often speak about the positive change we see in him, in many ways. I would just like to say that we could not be more grateful. She has been the person to make the difference. He finally feels happy going to school and often says “I love my teacher”.
She understands him so well, and has been the brightest shining star who has brought warmth, love, safety, reassurance, positivity and mainly acceptance in his learning world. She is so special, caring, and totally magnificent!
Thank you for having the vision to build a school suitable for our wonderful children, and thank you for finding the right teachers who find the energy to nurture them everyday.
We have thanked Mrs Daniel, but we don’t think she realises the magic she gives from within.
Thank you for the great school you are running. Grant is happy and is making good progress.
