Our Culture

Christian Life

Students at Redeemer Lutheran College are recognised as unique people created by God. The College seeks to be a Christian community in which students and staff alike give expression to their Christian faith with love and concern. Worship programs are grounded in Lutheran theology and are structured to nurture spiritual and faith formation.

Hope

Redeemer’s College motto is ‘Our Hope is in Christ’. For all people, Christian and non-Christian, hope is an encourager, for with hope comes persistence and endurance and the expectation of something better. Redeemer strives to instil hope in every student.

Our Values

At Redeemer we seek to enable each child to be Curious, Courageous and Christ-led. These values shape our daily actions and interactions and make Redeemer the ideal place to learn and grow. Do you share our values?

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care of students and families is a distinctive feature of the College's ethos. Home Group Teachers and Heads of House have primary responsibility for the daily pastoral care of students and focus on the personal well-being, as well as the academic progress of students. Our chaplains are available to provide additional support of a personal or spiritual nature. Within this positive nurturing community, students are able to develop a sense of belonging, self-worth and trust.

Our People

Redeemer continues to be blessed with committed professionals who support the spiritual, emotional, social and academic growth of our students. Our experienced teachers, counsellors and chaplains all contribute to ensuring each child is afforded the opportunity to reach their potential. We invest in professional development and research to ensure our staff are highly skilled and up to date with current teaching theory and practice.

Our Parents

The partnerships between home and school are fundamental to equip and help students to develop their potential, so that they will take their place as active and contributing members of their community. At Redeemer parents are highly engaged in College activities which provide opportunities for whole of family friendships.

Excellence of Attitude

Students are challenged to be the best that they can be, academically, in co-curricular and personally, and to take responsible risks. By supporting students in a caring and nurturing environment, the high expectations that each student is held to, they create a lifelong attitude of willingness to tackle the challenges of life.

Our Programs

Redeemer's Learning Journey

Our students progress through four Learning Journeys from Prep to Year 12. Each journey is unique to the age and development of the students. Developing in confidence in our Early Years (Prep-Year 2) and exercising choice and independence in our Senior Years (Years 10-12) provides our students the environment to grow into successful young men and women. Features of each Learning Journey include:

21st Century Learning

Redeemer Lutheran College seeks to equip students to be life-long learners, recognising that adaptability and acquiring news skills are essential to long-term success. Learning includes experiences and technologies that enable students to reflect upon and contribute to the world of today. Our teaching methods are grounded in evidence-based research. As a result, Redeemer has adopted the Art and Science of Teaching as the pedagogical framework that shapes the way we teach.

Academic Pathways

Redeemer provides challenging and supportive pathways for all students, from Prep to Year 12. As an inclusive school, striving for excellence, our aim is to assist students to explore all avenues that will aid them to serve society and reach their full potential. Ultimately, Redeemer students are equipped to pursue tertiary, vocational and employment pathways through a variety of programs and a diverse range of elective subjects in their final years of study.

Outdoor Education

The Outdoor Education Program at Redeemer for Years 3 -11 develops self-confident students who have a positive appreciation of their own worth as individuals. The program is more than just a series of camps. Development aspects foster students’ capabilities for service and leadership. Redeemer’s flagship camp is the Outdoor Education Experience, a four-week residential camp in Year 9 where students develop initiative, teamwork, resilience and independence.

Transition Program

Redeemer has a comprehensive Transition Program for students moving from Year 6 in Redeemer’s Junior School to Year 7 in the Middle Years within the Senior School. It focuses on allaying fears and creating a sense of familiarity with the physical surrounds of the Middle Years precinct. As students journey through Years 7, 8 and 9, they are supported by caring staff while they develop more independence in their learning.

Co-curricular Opportunities

Co-curricular activities are an extension of students' educational experiences at Redeemer and provide opportunities for students to develop academically, socially, spiritually, physically and creatively. Students can choose from cultural, music, and sport activities, ensuring the needs and interests of our diverse student population are met. Redeemer is widely recognised for its outstanding reputation in the area of music and performing arts.
