Hoërskool Ferrum

Hoerskool Ferrum, a public school situated in Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal, RSA.

In 2015, the principal, Charmaine Myburgh presented the idea of the school having its own Astro hockey field to the SBL.  After 5 years of planning the Astro is now complete and has been handed over to Hoerksool Ferrum by Sporturf in July 2020.


FieldTurf Gold Pro 18, FIH Approved Global Turf.  A blue surface with the line markings and their school “Falcon” logo has been tufted from the same pile height turf and cut into the surface.  Slagcrete, Newcastle constructed the stabilized base ready for the e-layer and turf to be laid.  Musco Lighting supplied and installed the 250 Lux lighting facility with 4 – 18.3 m galvanized steel poles with steps and safety cables, including 16 – 1500 watt Green Generation Lighting luminaries.

Sporturf has just finished with the building of our Astro. Johan and Claudia have gone out of their way to assist us during the whole process. We are extremely impressed with their professionalism and exemplary work ethic. As a school, we feel very blessed to have had such a reliable partner in the build. We happily endorse the work done by Sporturf and we can recommend the company to any school or institution.
