"The first thing I’d like you to know about Reddam House Waterfall Estate’s College is that we give our students permission to dream big things. Our Mission is to nurture individual potential. We believe in cultivating intelligence and talent. Rather than being fixed and finite, intelligence and talent will expand and grow, given the right encouragement. So we aim to keep students’ dreams and aspirations alive.
We are doing all we can to ensure that when students eventually leave school, they will do so as confident, caring young people, who are creative, collaborative, and committed to their learning. Our students are happy and enjoy their learning experience at our school. They have a huge number of opportunities in sports and creative pursuits. They enjoy being in a co-ed environment, where the girls tone down the aggressive nature of boys, and the boys tone down the competitive nature of girls. They complement each other. Their work and discussions are enriched because they often see the world through different eyes.
One of the things said universally by our school community is that there are strong relationships between staff and students in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
We are committed to nurturing each student’s potential. We are committed to excellence of educational delivery. We are committed to assisting students to exercise genuine respect for others, nurturing them to develop healthy relationships and to become responsible citizens."
MRS LISETTE NOONAN
The rigorous college curriculum has ensured that our students achieve to their highest potential as they prepare for the college and careers to which they aspire after high school. The faculty and staff work diligently to make sure we are preparing students to be successful, contributing members of our society. Our dedication to tradition, community and innovation along with forming a strong partnership with an engaged educational community have contributed to making Reddam House Waterfall one of South Africa's premier high schools.
Our chief focus is to provide our students with a world-class education where students develop and practice a self-awareness, a global competency, the skills to communicate effectively and the ability to collaborate with peers around the world. Our teachers endeavour to develop higher order and critical thinking skills, and infuse those skills into every aspect of a lesson. We strive to challenge every student at a level that matches his or her ability.
Our students participate in a technologically rich environment whereby they are provided with the necessary skills and tools to become technologically literate and achieve to their highest potential. Through extensive research, writing, collaboration and dialogue, students learn to become curious and resilient risk-takers. These engaged students take ownership of their own learning and, in turn, demonstrate passion for knowledge and solving problems.
