ONLINE OR ON CAMPUS - LET'S KEEP LEARNING!

As we prepare for the reopening of our schools, Reddam House students' well-being is of the utmost importance to us. We are committed to protecting the health and safety of each of our students, through our strict protocols that include screening, deep cleaning, and social distancing regulations.

 

Read COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures

 

Careful consideration has been given to students who cannot return to campus. Our online learning programmes will continue to assist them, ensuring no one misses out on a moment of learning.

Bottom slanted line

The Reddam House Ballito Virtual School experience retains two core elements that we believe make us an outstanding school. Firstly, the live student-teacher interaction, which is fundamental to all students making progress and achieving their full potential. Students gain so much from the direct interaction with their classmates and passionate teachers. The second core element is the desire to maintain our personalised learning approach that treats every student as an individual and supports them pastorally and academically at all times.

We believe that the digital environment will develop independent learning and 21st Century skills in all students.

Education is certainly changing and everyone at Reddam House Ballito is keen to be changing with it. We’re all open for learning.

HOW IT WORKS

At Reddam House Ballito, the Virtual School programme will mirror the actual school day as closely as possible, including school timings.

  • Class teachers will greet children each day each morning on Google Meet for their morning ring.
  • Specialist teachers have prepared activities for children to do and send through on the day that the specialist subject takes place.
  • The class teacher will post videos in which she will highlight aspects such as learning objectives and learning activities.
  • The day will follow the normal school day, with the regular break and lunch times, as much as is possible.

FOR SENIOR PREPARATORY SCHOOL (GRADE 4 - 7)


The intended outcome is that the curriculum is at the forefront of the work and, as far as possible, student progress should not be negatively impacted.

  • Work will be shared via Google Classroom and will involve online lessons via Google Meet conferencing. Students will be invited to join the virtual classroom by their subject teachers. This will take place live at the time of the usual lesson slot.

Homework during remote learning will complement the lesson, just as with normal school.
