HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY MIND
Reddam House Helderfontein is a Boarding school. Therefore, we are able to cater a hot Lunch for all students from Grade 1 – 12 at midday. Although this is an additional compulsory cost, it is a wonderful benefit to the school day. Students are able to sit down for a nutritious, balanced meal. This gives them the energy requirements for the final two hours of academic lessons and then into their co-curricular activities in the afternoon. Students enjoy the time where they are able to socialise with their friends over a meal. Healthy debate is encouraged because cell phones are discouraged in our dining hall, affectionately known as "The Grange".
The catering and canteen is outsourced. However, meals and items sold are carefully monitored to include only heathy snacks. No carbonated, sweetened drinks are served and unhealthy food is not on offer.
