Redeemer Lutheran College: Christian Private School Brisbane
A Co-educational Christian College for Prep to Year 12
Redeemer Lutheran College, located on the border of Brisbane and Logan cities, draws its 1,100 students from a wide area including Redlands, Brisbane and south to Beenleigh. A co-educational P-12 school of the Lutheran Church of Australia, Queensland District, Redeemer offers a holistic education with clear expression of the Christian faith in which all College relationships and practices are shaped and informed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pastoral care of students and families is a distinctive feature of the College’s ethos and many parents refer to RLC as “the caring school”.
A chaplaincy and counselling team provides valuable support. As students progress through Redeemer they are encouraged to be actively involved in the worship life of the school. They are also given opportunities to be involved in service activities and to develop their social conscience.
The Junior School caters for students in Prep to Year 6 and is a place of energy, activity and exciting opportunities for students. Not only do teachers provide learning that is fun and engaging in the classroom, students also enjoy many educational experiences outside the classroom. The campus is designed to offer each child a happy, secure, caring, creative and nurturing environment where students will have the opportunity to grow and develop holistically.
The Senior School caters for students in Years 7 to 12 with two distinct programs: the Middle Years from Years 7 to 9 and the Senior Years from Years 10 to 12. The Senior School is a vibrant learning environment which prepares students for life in all of its shapes. House Leaders and Home Group teachers oversee the spiritual, academic, emotional and social development of students. The House system also is the basis of much friendly rivalry. Houses compete for the House Cup awarded annually to the House which has been the most successful in a range of events including sporting and other events.
The Middle Years program (Years 7 to 9) provides a pathway for students from the primary years to the senior secondary years which recognises the need for age-relevant, academic, and pastoral care learning opportunities that allow pre and early teens to progress with confidence, knowing that they are safe and understood. The Middle Years Program has a distinct identity in terms of sub-school culture and a clearly identifiable sub-school space. A highlight of the Middle Years program is the four week outdoor education program for Year 9 students. This program is designed to foster skills and personal growth not able to be achieved in a classroom.
The Senior Years (Years 10 to 12) provides students with various paths to further study and careers and aims to equip students for lifelong learning. Redeemer is committed to academic excellence with core and elective subjects catering for students’ interests and ambitions. Students may embark on a rigorous academic program which prepares them for higher education learning or they may access an alternative pathway which includes school-based apprenticeships and traineeships combined with Certificate courses offered by TAFE and other outside providers. Extension opportunities are also available through studying University subjects in Year 12. Careers education is provided to assist students as they choose subjects and explore their post-school options.
The co-curricular program is extensive and is further evidence of Redeemer’s holistic approach providing opportunities for students to develop academically, socially, spiritually, physically and creatively. Students are encouraged to compete in a range of team sports (GBC interschool competition) and carnivals. Students with an interest in music have a choice of medal-winning ensembles as part of the co-curricular music program and a chance to continue Redeemer’s fine history of regional eisteddfod successes. Students may also choose to participate in the biennial college musical. QDU and QDU Round Robin debating appeals to many students and clubs such as drama, chess, photography, amnesty, art and Christian dance provide opportunities for students to develop their creative interests. In the Senior School, student committees including Christian Life, Cultural, Community Service, Academic, Environmental, School Spirit, Sporting and Student Council provide opportunities for young people to develop their leadership skills.
Redeemer works in partnership with parents to equip young people and to help them to develop to their potential, so that they will take their place as active members of their community, serving God and their fellow beings in all that they do.
