PREPARATORY

OUR PREPARATORY SCHOOL | GRADES 1 TO 6


Reddam House Waterfall is a co-educational, non-denominational environment designed to recognise, nurture and develop the individuality of each student placed in our care and to extend students to their maximum potential in all aspects of education. Our teachers understand the need not only for the importance of teaching the required curriculum, but also for forming a relationship with your child, a relationship that is built on trust and mutual respect.

All students in our Preparatory School are required to participate in at least two extra-curricular activities per week. One sporting and one cultural. We encourage as much participation and involvement as possible. The extra-curricular time table caters for beginners, as well as, those students who are at a provincial level in their particular activity. The Music @ Reddam programme is a wonderful curriculum offering for all students in Grades 4 – 6. This programme involves an individual instrumental music lesson, as well as, participation in an ensemble. All students are involved in the Reddam Gives Back Programme, whereby each class chooses a project in the wider community and facilitates the needs of their chosen programme during the year.

Should you have any queries, or if you would like to meet with the Head or any other members of staff, please do not hesitate to contact the school in order to make an appointment. We look forward to your positive support as we strive for the best possible education for your child.

MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD


It is my sincere wish that we, the staff, parents and students of Reddam House Waterfall, can collectively work towards building on the success of the school and making it an environment that acknowledges the gift of our diversity, recognising the uniqueness of each individual and harnessing the collective wisdom of all stakeholders towards extending our teaching and learning. Thus we will create a sense of belonging and a true connection between one another as a second family.

Mr Quinton Pascoe

We encourage students to be active members of the School by participating in a variety of extra-curricular activities.  A full programme of the term's cultural and sporting activities will be issued at the end of each term in preparation for the following term. Students are encouraged to select at least two activities per term. (one sporting and one cultural)
Traditional school activities (soccer, tennis, cricket etc.) are included in the tuition fee.  Other specialised activities (yoga, karate, dance, gymnastics etc.) are offered at an additional cost as they are provided by external Service Providers.  We offer you the convenience of these services on our campus but it must be remembered that attendance at school functions and activities will take precedence over these “external” activities. Venues and times for these activities may change from time to time.
