About Us

NEW GEN ACADEMY was born out of a need to provide parents in previously disadvantaged communities with an alternative option to State funded Public Schools. We opened our doors in 2014 with only 17 learners.

The Christian Ethos at NGA provides the cornerstone for our vision, mission and academic program. New Gen Academy is a Christian school where Christian values are promoted and respected.

The school is based on its 3 pillars. Academics, Technology, Sports and Culture encouraging all learners to holistically grow and be nurtured. We are an innovative school moving with the times of technology, making it a part of our teaching and learning methodology.

We endeavour to provide sound and qualitative education that develops the learner holistically enabling them to participate in the development of this great nation.


We aim to provide quality education that caters for and enhances the potential of all learners. We instil positive values and norms in our students, and approach education from a holistic view, focusing on all aspects of the child’s development.


Discipline and mutual respect shall be the hallmark of our School.
It is our mission to offer to our learners a safe and secure learning and teaching environment free from harassment, bullying, drug and substance abuse.

Mrs Rhona Paliyandi

Deputy Head Principal

Over 44 years, I have been enjoying my educating journey within many senior positions at various schools. But I am most enjoying NGA as it is a Christian based school where I can live out my calling daily as I am a registered Senior Pastor (Rev). NGA has an open-door policy where transparency and mutual respect is key. When living out your calling its not work.

Mrs Sherall Tasak


I call it a privilege and honour to be a part of the imparting and depositing into our learners lives.

Being a part of the team means I get to live out my passion every day, which I do not take for granted. My job is to nurture and instil the foundation and fundamentals in our learners that will eventually enable them to soar into all the things that life has for them.

HOD Foundation Phase

We teach the learners holistically. While following the CAPS in par with DBE regulations we also follow the Christian Ethos of NGA by encouraging learners to build on their spiritual lives and enhance their morals and values.  We are all different, but we are all equal.

Mrs Margaret Engelbrecht

HOD Intermediate Phase

I love teaching  and am working out my passion. I believe that we as educators make a great positive contribution to society. It has been satisfying to see the learners progress academically, spiritually and all round.

Mrs Micaela Greef


What I love about being a part of the New Gen family is that every day is different and unique.
Being a small school, it feels like one big family including learners and staff members.

Mrs Lotshiwe Ndlovu


I am extremely proud to be part of the NewGen community. What notably stands out about NewGen to me is the appreciation and acknowledgement of culture diversity. To me it has sharpened my ability to deal with a different  range of learners across cultures. NewGen is a school deeply rooted in religion and this helps create a more just, peaceful and cohesive environment which makes teaching and learning  at NewGen pleasant. This is home!
