40 Years


Established in 1980, Redeemer Lutheran College is celebrating 40 years in 2020. Across this coming year, a range of events will be taking place to celebrate this special milestone in the life of the College as we honour the past and look to the future.

Premiere Launch of Redeemer’s History Video Series

‘Honouring the Past, Looking to the Future’

We’re excited to announce the premiere launch of a special video series that has been produced, acknowledging Redeemer’s 40th Anniversary year.  The 3-part video series looks at the different eras of Redeemer, and interviews with each of our Principals over the past 40 years: Mr Robin Kleinschmidt (1980-2001), Dr Richard Hauser (2002-2008), Mr David Radke (2009-2016), and Mrs Tanya Crooks (2017-present). 

Each video will be premiered live on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/RedeemerLutheranCollege/live and on Redeemer’s YouTube Channel at: www.youtube.com/RedeemerLuthCollege
