Redeemer's weekly newsletter
“Redeemer has an amazing sense of community, opportunity and integrity. The school’s teaching methods would surely contribute to the success of my peers and me. Our school has many resources allowing opportunities to be pushed to the boundaries. This is why I like Redeemer.”

Houses

In 1980 two sports houses were set up, initially just Lavarack (red) and Mansfield (green). Some years later, Ramsay (yellow) and Wilson (purple) were added. Each new student is assigned to a House upon commencement at Redeemer. Any student who has or had another member of his or her family attending the school is allocated to the same House.

Redeemer’s Houses are named after Queensland born governors. Details are as follows:
