From one classroom to so many different paths since they left school! Here is what some of the  Matric 2017 have been up to:

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)

Events

Alumni Day 2018



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)


Ms Boosey was delighted to receive the Matric 2017 in her new sparkling lab. Here she is with the boys – vivacious as ever!

“Having the Matric 2017 back at school today, was like being reunited with my  ‘old family’. I was reminded of how comfortable my relationship was with that special class, the first Matric class of our school. I miss my babies!” (Debbie Boosey)


“It was so heartwarming to have some of our matrics of 2017 come back home to Reddam House Umhlanga. I got a lump in my throat hearing all their stories and seeing how they have matured! I can’t wait to see them again next year and hear all their news! (Tammy Lailvaux)


Keenan put a smile on all the teachers’ faces!


The boys had a flashback when they saw their beloved foosball in the slick new Matric Room! They just couldn’t resist.


And Kaige just had to try that Headmaster’s sofa!

Valedictory Ceremony 2018



Remember last year? You were in their shoes! The 2018 Matric class had their Valedictory Ceremony on Friday, 12 October. They are now busy writing their exams – something we are sure you don’t miss!


“Our memorable and moving Valedictory Ceremony took place on Friday, 12 October where we bade a fond and formal farewell to the Class of 2018 - our second ever group of Matric students.


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.” 

Adam Rogers

College Headmaster 


Our heartwarming Grade 1s who sang for the Matric students like they did for you last year. Very emotional!

Last Day of School 2018

Soon our second Matric group will join you as fellow Alumni. We wish them all the best for their Examinations!



To mark the uniqueness of their last day of school and kick off their exam season, the Matric class of 2018 made sure to leave their mark in the college building.
