Supporter Groups

Groups of parents meet regularly to support the activities of students in Music, Sport and Debating . In addition to providing moral and vocal support, they raise funds for extra equipment or services, provide refreshments or meals and enjoy making friends with like-minded parents.

The groups operate under the umbrella of the Parents and Friends Committee. Meeting dates for Supporter Groups are published in the College Calendar and the Newsletter.

Sport Supporter Group

The aim of the Sport Supporter Group is to promote the Redeemer Spirit and engage the Redeemer community closer together, whilst also providing a valuable service with the provision of refreshments at sporting events. In addition, funds raised by the group will go directly back into the various sporting teams through purchase of training equipment and sporting team equipment, as well as providing financial support for sporting carnival registrations.

The Sport Supporter Group is currently chaired by Mrs Sheila Vela, with Mr Grant Garey filling the role of Treasurer. We are very thankful to Sheila and Grant for nominating for these important roles. The success of any supporters group is based on the engagement of the community and, as such, we are looking for parents and caregivers to become involved and join the team supporters. This can be achieved by volunteering time behind a canteen on game days, manning the barbecue, or by volunteering in other fundraising activities.

If you would like to know more about the Redeemer Sport Supporter Group or become involved, please contact either the College Sport Office via, or the College P&F Committee via
