Principal's welcome

Andrew Johnson

Thank you for considering a partnership with Redlands College in the education of your son or daughter.  We invite you to explore this website, visit the College campus and speak with staff and students to understand the unique characteristics of our learning community.

Redlands College has been intentionally building a Christ centred community of excellence for 30 years, focussing on developing a supportive, innovative and challenging educational environment in which all students can learn and be provided with opportunities to embrace their gifts and talents.

I am delighted to be joining Redlands College as Principal in 2017. My wife Danielle and I have three children educated at Redlands College. As a family we have valued the school’s collaborative approach to faith based education and appreciate the broad suite of opportunities provided by passionate staff that invite students to grow in knowledge and character.

My professional journey has involved teaching in both State and Christian schooling, followed by administration and Principal roles in a P-12 Christian school. For seven years I was the Queensland State Executive Officer for Christian Schools Australia, working with Christian schools across the state. This role included professional support for principals, governing bodies and leadership staff, political advocacy for issues impacting Christian schools and assisting in the accreditation review of schools.

I have been involved in a range of international Christian education programs and have recently completed doctoral research exploring the unique contribution that faith based schools make to the academic, social, emotional and spiritual formation of each student.

Redlands College is a stimulating learning community, with a strong academic focus and a passionate embrace of the arts and sport. I encourage you to consider the full range of opportunities at Redlands College for your child and I look forward to being involved in their learning journey.
