Updated: Nov 15, 2021
The Inspired Education Group of schools has welcomed well-known radio show anchor on 947’s drive show and mom, Anele Mdoda as their second ambassador who will represent Reddam House and Reddford House schools in South Africa.
As a much-loved and respected South African personality and author, Anele joins the Inspired group of schools not only as an ambassador who will work with the premium education group to create relatable conversations around the Inspired Education Group’s education journey; but as a parent of a young son who has just started his education journey at Reddam House Helderfontein’s Early Learning School (ELS). On his first day she commented: “We are so excited to share our experience of the school authentically – I am confident that my son will thrive here. When I found out about the Reggio Emilio approach on my first visit for a tour of Reddam House Helderfontein, it made so much sense to me. It’s progressive and the atmosphere at the school assured me that my child will learn in a loving and creative environment. What more could I wish for as a parent?”
The ELS phase of the Reddam House and Reddford House schools have their roots in the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education which views young children as individuals who are curious about their world and have the powerful potential to learn from all that surrounds them. The Reggio Emilia model of learning incorporates the child as the centre of the learning experience. It encourages investigation, collaboration and active participation. As founder Loris Malaguzzi explains: “Children are not empty vessels that need to be filled with facts.”
The Inspired Education Group is a co-educational, non-denominational, independent school group, with eight Reddam House schools located in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape, and three Reddford House schools in Gauteng. Ravi Nadasen, CEO of Inspired South Africa, says that at the heart of the school’s philosophy is a commitment to deliver a consistently fresh and progressive approach to education in an exciting and nurturing academic environment.
The group’s ethos focuses on four key pillars – academics, sport, culture, and giving back to inspire youngsters from age one to 18 to achieve their maximum potential through a premium and multi-faceted education. Nadasen elaborated: “Anele is one of the most compelling media personalities in South Africa. Her values as a young Mom and her dedication to projects which empower and uplift mirror the group’s pillars and drew Inspired to partner with her as ambassador.”
Anele is a society enthusiast who uses her Anele and the Club on 947 show to impact the community, but she also loves challenges and was one of the contestants of the fifth season of Strictly Come Dancing and more recently, host on Celebrity Game Night. This award-winner with a passion for the betterment of children believes that the kind of people you choose to surround yourself with is of great importance. Inspired Education Group could not agree more!
