Reddam House Helderfontein was excited to welcome one of Inspired’s ambassadors, Tendai ‘The Beast’ Mtawarira, to view the school’s new High- Performance Centre (HPC). The centre adds another world-class feature to this already modern and technologically advanced school campus and will cater for both the serious athlete and general community as the school strives for and promotes a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Tendai was enthusiastic about the new developments on campus: “When I was a youngster, I used to dream of having facilities like this and I think it's incredible what the school has achieved as a relatively new school in the Fourways area. Opening this High-Performance Centre is a great initiative that will really benefit the kids. Fitness is vitally important for the mental health of young people, because when you're active, and your body is in good shape, that's when your mind also works at its optimum level. So, I'd encourage young people to get into the gym.”
Executive Head, Graham Bennetts, is confident that this new addition aligns perfectly with the vision of the school. “We have just built a cycle track and golf driving range as a part of our ‘embrace the outdoors’ philosophy and this facility will not only provide training programmes for our full range of students but will also assist with the rehabilitation of injuries.” With a smile he added, “You will notice that there are no treadmills and other cardio machines in the HPC. We want that to happen in the fresh air under the sun!”
