BOOK YOUR PLACE AT OUR OPEN DAY ON 9 MARCH
We look forward to welcoming all Grade 7 students and their parents to our College Open Day on 9 March 2018. Please report to our College reception for refreshments at 13h00.
Please note that all students attending our Open Day will be expected to write a 45 minute English examination and a 45 minute Mathematics examination from 13h30 to 15h00. These tests do not require preparation or study and are based on work covered by the end of Grade 6. All students are expected to attend in their current school uniform.
All students and parents are invited to join us for drinks and snacks in the Functions Room between 17h00 and 18h00 at the conclusion of the Open Day programme.
Please would you register your attendance by completing the form below:
- Academics: IEB vs NSC?
A small and independent assessment body is necessary for the fostering of creative, critical and independent thinking. Chantal Lourens, our Academic Head, will tell you about the diverse subject combinations offered by Reddam House Umhlanga as part of the Grade 10 to 12 curriculum; the benefits of an IEB National Senior Certificate as well as Reddam House’s support teaching programme that is key to academic success.
- Sport, Sports Science and Physical Education
First class sporting facilities, expert coaches, the unique offering of Sports Science as part of the curriculum and a focus on centres of sporting excellence within our Physical Education classes are all designed to help our students reach their sporting potential. Director of College Sport, Ross Veenstra, is ready to tell you more.
A co-educational school is fundamentally different to a monastic school in the values we espouse and encourage. A co-educational environment is designed to ensure that every child feels validated and is raised to respect and work alongside members of the opposite gender. Come and hear more from Debbie Boosey, Deputy Head in charge of Student Affairs.
- Leadership Programme
We, at Reddam House, believe that every student has the ability to lead and should be provided with the opportunities and platforms to demonstrate their leadership skills. Justin Engelbrecht, History teacher and facilitator of the Leadership Programme, will share some unique aspects of the Reddam House leadership model.
Boarding at Reddam House Umhlanga is a round-the-clock educational experience. It promotes holistic development where students are free to explore educational, cultural and sporting activities 7 days a week. Moreover, boarding encourages collaboration, communication, compromise and camaraderie 24 hours a day. Hadyn Skinner, Head of Boarding, will tell you more.
