Redeemer's weekly newsletter

“My favourite thing about Redeemer is the music program. The music program is not limited to lessons, but includes choirs, bands and talented ensembles. Each of the ensembles strive to maintain a high standard throughout the year through weekly practises, competing in challenging competitions and performing at college events which all lead towards the ability to extend the musicians to achieve their best. These ensembles are not all work though, they are great places for students to interact with students across grades, and staff with the opportunity to create new friendships. Redeemer’s music program is not only ensembles though, every two years Redeemer puts on a first class musical that a high proportion of the school becomes involved in, across the multitude of areas including creating the props, music, acting or being a part of the chorus. Everyone has an opportunity to be involved. The music program could never be at this level without the devotion of the very talented staff that conduct each band and ensemble, teaching classes, or tutoring the students in across the vast number of instrumental lessons on offer. It is this variety of different factors that help to make Redeemer the school it is and keep it at this remarkable standard.<br”

RLC Foundation

The Redeemer Lutheran College Foundation was established in 1986 to assist the College Council in encouraging the interest and financial support of members of the college community in improving and developing the standards and services of the College.

The Board of Directors of the Foundation manages all funds donated to the Building, Library and Endowment Funds.

Enquiries about the Foundation may be addressed to the Principal on 07 3340 8888 or email foundation@redeemer.com.au.

As part of the Christian education offered at Redeemer, we aim to provide students with the opportunity to grow and develop academically, physically, socially and spiritually. The college enjoys wonderful facilities and a splendid environment to support the growth and development of our students. However, there are always many projects that we would like to undertake to further enhance the learning environment at Redeemer.

A tax deductible gift to the Building Fund managed by the Redeemer Lutheran College Foundation is a great way to ensure that the building program at Redeemer continues to provide first rate facilities that meet the diverse needs of students and staff.

You may prefer to direct your gift to the Library Fund to supply library resources or to fund visiting author programs.

The Endowment Fund provides yet another avenue for donating. Donations to this fund are not tax-deductible, but they are gifts which go on working indefinitely, since only the interest earned by the funds is used each year for scholarships, bursaries and awards.

Should you wish to assist the college financially but not make a donation, then this can be achieved by opening an LLL (Lutheran Laypeople’s League) Savings Account, requesting that your account be nominated as a Matching Deposit for the college to borrow against. The LLL offers an attractive interest rate (check www.lll.org.au for the current rate) with funds at call. For further information, please contact the Business Office.

Gifts of any size would be most welcome. Donors of gifts over $1,000 are eligible to apply for membership of the Redeemer Lutheran College Foundation and we ask that you seriously consider Foundation membership. Please support Annual Giving and help us to build an even better Redeemer Lutheran College.
