WE SHALL GIVE BACK
The Reddam House motto is “We Shall Give Back”. As members of the South African community, Reddam House has the responsibility to work towards a society where all citizens are treated equally and, by working in our community, we aim to improve the lives of those we work with.
Reddam House believes that the purpose of Community Service/Social Leadership is to encourage students to develop an understanding of civic responsibility and the role they can play in supporting and strengthening their communities.
Community involvement increases student awareness of community needs and how they can make a positive difference. Helping others enhances the self-image of students and fosters a greater sense of belonging to the greater whole.
All students at Reddam House are expected to participate in some form of Community Service/Social Leadership or Outreach Projects.
