THE ORIGINS OF OUR NAME

TUTUM TE REBORE REDDAM

The REDDAM motto has its origins in Scottish history with the first Monarch of Crawford who saved King David the First of Scotland from certain death by a stag during a hunting expedition. The Monarch of Crawford adopted the motto “TUTUM TE REBORE REDDAM” which means “I will keep you safe by my strength”, and his Coat-of-Arms included the stag’s head as a symbol of the Monarch’s bravery. On marrying his wife, the monarch included the fleur-de-lis in his Coat-of-Arms. Since then, the Coat of Arms of the Crawford clan has always incorporated the stag and fleur-de-lis.

In 1999, Mrs Crawford-Kempster, Director of Reddam House, worked with Mr Burnell, the State Herold at the Bureau of Heraldry in Pretoria and using the elements of the stag and the fleur-de-lis, created a Coat-of-Arms for Reddam House.

Our school’s name is taken from the Latin for “give back”, and our school motto “We shall give back” is a fitting sentiment in the new South Africa, and one which serves as a reminder to our students of the importance of contributing to the community.
