From one classroom
Kaige has been working hard on his tennis game, training to enter the tennis pro circuit in Europe next year. Jaret is studying Law at the University of KwaZulu Natal. Mykaila is studying for her degree in Teaching at Varsity College in Durban. Aidan took a gap year during which he followed a Yacht Master Course in Durban and Cape Town and travelled to Denmark, Sweden, Dubai and finally Spain, where he worked on yachts as a deckhand. He is currently working in Durban in his family business, taking over from his father in the management of the company. Michela is studying psychology and philosophy at the University of Cape Town, in the faculty of Social Sciences. And some people never completely left the Reddam House Umhlanga grounds! Calvin and Keenan have been working as sports coaches in the Senior Primary school. They will both leave next year, Calvin to Stellenbosch University and Keenan to the USA.
From their own voice
We asked the Alumni to capture in a few words any thoughts that came to mind during their visit. This is what they had to say:
“I love to still be part of Reddam House Umhlanga as a sports coach. I have learned a lot about myself through working and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds” (Calvin Gardiner)
“I became more responsible since I left school! I miss RHU, teachers and friends” (Jaret Reddy)
“My motto will always be: Never give up!” (Kaige Bertasso)
“I will always be grateful for my experience at RHU because it shaped me into what I am today and because I benefit academically from what I have acquired here” (Mikayla Brown)
“Ms Lourens was right. University is `hectic`. Matric was `hectic-er`” (Michela Rossiter)
“I miss the hours of school because working hours are way too long!” (Aidan Hill)
“School was great, but a long holiday was better! Thanks hey, have a good one!” (Keenan Christy)
On Friday, the 14th of September, Reddam House Umhlanga opened its door to welcome back members of the Matric 2017 Class for their very first reunion. The reception hall was buzzing with excitement as the Alumni reunited with peers, teachers and memories. They were invited to have tea with the headmaster and the College staff and then proceeded to a guided tour of the new College facilities, the Reddam Res and the Creative and Performing Arts centre.
“I always associated the Matric Class 2017 with a special historical moment of our school, as these students were the founders of our high school. This group of old boys and girls continues to make history today as they become the first members of the Alumni of RHU, an association still in its early days, which will naturally grow every year, with them at its starting point." (Adam Rogers)
United in their diverse talents from accomplished artists, inspirational singers, a mesmerising dancer, entertaining actors, able-bodied sportspeople, truly brilliant academics and perhaps even more importantly kind, friendly people. This group has led by example and have truly lived out our College’s “culture of commitment.”
