MID YEAR MESSAGE FROM REDDAM HOUSE MD SHEENA CRAWFORD-KEMPSTER

06 July 2017


Education has taken tremendous strides in the Digital Age. In many respects, with wide-ranging and readily available information on the World Wide Web, education has become far more interactive and ever-more demanding of our teachers.

Education and information are no longer the preserve of lofty teachers imparting pearls of wisdom to their students; education has become progressively `democratised’. This poses ever-increasing challenges to our amazing Reddam House teachers, to be endlessly inventive, skilled, entertaining and creative in the increasingly subtle `Art of Teaching’. A vital element of good teaching today lies in guidance with integrity and caring custodianship.

To this end, I applaud what Ben Johnson has to say that:

“Great teachers engineer learning experiences that put students in the driver’s seat and then get out of the way.”

Let’s not forget that before you get to drive a vehicle, you need a learner’s license. There is a need to research and learn a great deal of theory which you then apply by putting that theory into practice. By the time the student takes the driver’s seat, he or she needs to have assimilated a great deal of theoretical information as Ben Johnson suggests, based on their own education, experience, skill, wisdom and values as the teacher’s task is that of custodian and guide. They point out potholes, other vehicles, tight turns and cul-de-sacs. They also prompt and assist our students to observe and drive according to the Rules of the Road, proactively anticipating and avoiding accidents so that our students arrive timeously and safely at their ultimate destination, with the teacher as navigator and the student with his or her eyes on the road and both hands on the wheel.

MOMENTS THAT MATTER AT THE REDDAM HOUSE WATERFALL EARLY LEARNING SCHOOL

05 June 2017


The Reddam House Waterfall Early Learning School children took lessons from a fish, The Rainbow Fish, which is no ordinary fish. The fish learnt that in sharing and caring he not only made good friends but that he too, felt good ‘inside’ his heart! Inspired by this tale our children were invited to create meaningful mobiles, which not only encapsulated the essence of the tale but would be displayed in our Piazza for all to share and enjoy. Another exiting event - the first of its kind since the Early Learning School opened its doors – our own real live fish - Stage 5 children went swimming in our very own Learn-to-Swim pool on campus. The children came away smiling and thoroughly enjoyed being taken through the paces of a lesson in the swimming pool.
