The Middle School at Redeemer Lutheran College (for Years 6-8) was established in 1999 to assist students to experience a smoother transition between primary and secondary schooling. The facilities were purpose built for this age group and enable students to engage in a wide range of learning experiences in both independent and group situations.
Mrs Kathy Stock
Head of Middle School
Redeemer’s Middle School, which opened in 1999, has three classes of Year 6, four classes of Year 7, and five classes of Year 8. Each student belongs to a Home Group, under the care of a Home Group teacher who takes particular interest in the welfare and development of that group of young people. The Home Group teacher works closely with the various specialists who teach that class, and with the Teacher Librarian, the Coordinator or Learning Enhancement and the Head of the Middle School. Every disciplinary issue has a pastoral care element, and in managing such issues the teaching staff are supported by the Chaplains and the Student Counsellor. We encourage parents to contact the college if they have any concerns about their children, so that we can work in partnership for the benefit of the young people.
As a Christian school, we aim to provide a safe, happy environment for our students, where gospel values are modelled by the staff and are expected of the students. Every day begins with worship, either in the classrooms, at assembly or in the Chapel. We encourage our students to recognise and appreciate the many ways in which they have been blessed and to share a little of their material wealth with people, especially in developing countries.
