Beyond the Classroom
Young people face increasing demands as part of an ever-changing and fast-growing global society. Adequate preparation for life after school is vital, and exposure to an enriched extracurricular programme outside the classroom is becoming increasingly significant.
At Reddam House Helderfontein, our students have access to various physical, creative and academic pursuits that appeal to them. They may choose from an extensive range of additional activities to discover an interest that will enable them to develop. Access to extracurricular clubs and tuition fosters positive personal qualities, a resilient attitude and key skills, which complement and strengthen academic success.
Inter-house activities are held annually and offer participation in all seasonal sports. During house activities, tutors and school staff emphasise the importance of active involvement and teamwork. Sports teams, and other groups or individual students, may be entered into leagues to compete against independent schools in the region and those overseas.
Our enriched extra-curricular activities programme currently includes basketball, gymnastics*, hiking, horse riding*, mountain biking, swimming, touch rugby, water polo, athletics, cricket, golf*, hockey, netball, soccer, tennis, debating, choir, eisteddfod*, music workshops, public speaking, chess, dance, and drama. Clubs and activities are subject to demand.
