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”
