Parents | Students | Staff ... building community together!

Everyone enjoyed the 2019 Fete!


IMG3974Parent engagement with the College is facilitated through Community@Redlands. This structure involves the dual elements of a Principal’s Discussion Forum once per term and an annual Calendar of Events which identifies and enables opportunities for parents to be engaged in College events.

The aim of Community@Redlands is to:

  • Maximise cooperation and communication between the College and parents
  • Facilitate parent involvement in College events and activities
  • Provide a forum for discussion on College initiatives, strategies, and community engagement
  • Identify parent gifts, talents, abilities and services which may support and enhance the learning journey for students at Redlands College
  • Facilitate parent participation in both fundraising and friendraising for College initiatives.
