5 Facts about Seahorses

There are more than 40 known species of seahorses. Seahorses swim in pairs with their tails linked together. They swim upright and avoid predators by mimicking the colour of the underwater plants. Seahorses propel themselves by using a small fin on their back that flutters up to 35 times per second.  They have no teeth and no stomach. Food passes through their digestive systems so quickly that they must eat almost constantly to stay alive.

Exceptional Achievement

At Summerwood Primary School all 700 learners are ... learners. However; our learners are as diverse as the 40 known species of seahorses. Nevertheless; they are one family of Summerwood siblings and should be proud of being recognized as such. This should manifest visibly in how they all wear their Summerwood uniform with pride.

Summerwood Vision

Building the Future

Our vision is to create a programme that engages every single learner. We strive to help learners overcome challenges in this diverse community and exceed their goals in a caring and supportive environment.


One of the most important ways that we enrich our educational experience is by staying involved with Summerwood and broader Nelson Mandela Bay community. Get in touch to learn more about Summerwood Primary School.

Summerwood Learner Leaders of 2022

Summerwood Primary School has returned to the concept of having only four core learner leaders for 2022. 

House captains and monitors will fulfil different roles,


The learner leaders will be expected to be role models to all the learners in the Summerwood family.

These four leaders will be used at functions and special occasions such as welcoming the new learners to the school in 2022.

They will also be used at assemblies.

Each learner leader will be a mentor for a Grade 1-class in 2022.

We trust that all our learner leaders, house captains and monitors will not be impeded by COVID-19 to play an active role in Summerwood School life in 2022.


Summerwood Primary School House Captains

The Summerwood Primary School House Captains for 2022 will lead the Dolphins, Orcas and Stingrays. They will be responsible for organizing House Day assemblies, encouraging participation in their respective houses, designing house posters for the notice boards and driving charity events and fundraising projects, just to mention a few.
