About Us A Co-educational Christian College for Prep to Year 12 Redeemer Lutheran College (RLC), located on the border of Brisbane and Logan cities, draws its 1,150 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, RLC 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. Most staff are practising Christians, as are many students, although adherents of any belief and culture are welcome subject to their acceptance of the College's policies, practices and traditions. 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 horizontal pastoral care system in the Junior School and a vertical pastoral care system in the Senior Years cater for the needs of students at different ages. Students have a Home Group Teacher who oversees their welfare and development. A chaplaincy and counselling team provides valuable support. As students progress through RLC 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 is a place of energy, activity and exciting opportunities for students. Every day is full of new experiences. 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 Secondary School Middle Years Program provides a smooth transition between primary and secondary schooling. The Middle Years provides a nurturing environment which assists young people to move from childhood to adolescence. Staff enjoy working with young adolescents and help them to develop in such areas as relationships with adults and peers, technological skills, organisational skills, research skills, responsibility for property and behaviour, reaching for higher goals, and realising their potential in all areas. Year 9 students participate in a four week, residential, outdoor education program. The program is designed to foster personal, spiritual, physical and social development. Confidence is gained through the acquisition of skills, skills in co-operation and community living involving independence and interdependence. The Senior School provides students with a range of experiences that enhance their opportunities for successful and meaningful transition from secondary school to post-school pathways. Careers education is provided to assist students as they choose subjects and explore their post-school options. RLC aims to assist students to reach their potential and prepare them to become responsible citizens in a rapidly changing society. RLC is committed to academic excellence with core and elective subjects catering for students' interests and ambitions. Students choose subjects from a curriculum which promotes high standards of learning and strives to help each student develop self-confidence and self-discipline. Over the past 5 years, an average of 4.7% OP eligible students have received OP1. In 2013, 29% of students received OP1-5 and 91% of students received OP1-15. While the majority of school-leavers proceed directly to university studies, alternative vocational pathways are also supported through TAFE studies and traineeships offered in the senior years. The co-curricular program is extensive and is further evidence of RLC'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 (TAS 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. Recently, RLC's music students experienced exceptional regional eisteddfod success with seven first places, three seconds, one third and a highly-commended. 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. RLC 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.
