Principal's Welcome

​​Redlynch State College has a proud history of academic success, sporting prowess, community support and parent involvement. The school was first opened on the original school site in 1932, after 5 years of lobbying by the local community. The school opened with an enrolment of 80 students. This strong community link has been a recurrent feature of our school community.

The College’s vision 'Learning in our Valley, Thinking beyond the Hills' is supported by our school-wide pedagogy of Relationships, Success, Connections, Equity and Quality (RSCEQ). These pedagogies underpin the learning activities that we as a College provide across all phases of learning, i.e. Early, Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary. We aim to ensure that every student from Prep to Year 12 experience a curriculum that focuses on their future and prepares them to succeed in their field of choice. The College curriculum aligns with the Australian curriculum.

Redlynch SC continues to focus on High Yield teaching and learning to support a more explicit model of teaching. Teachers have a deep understanding of student data and use this effectively to differentiate the learning to meet all student’s needs. The College places a high importance on effective behaviour strategies and all staff operate within the Colleges “Positive Behaviour for Learning” philosophy.

The Redlynch area has a high socio-economic status with the majority of students coming from professional and small business backgrounds. The College has recently enacted an enrolment management plan to help manage the growth of the school to remain within its 2,150 student capacity.

The College has a range of pastoral care programs to support students, staff and parents. We have an established Guidance Officer service with 2 officers servicing both campuses, a Chaplain, a school based Health Nurse, a Well-being Officer supporting students and parents, Student Support Committees, an integrated Positive Behaviour for Learning Program, a P-6 ‘Kids Matter’ program, a ‘You Can Do It’ Program plus a range of other short course programs run on and off campus for students who require specialised support. School Opinion Surveys report high levels of morale for staff and high levels of students’ acceptance for their school.

At the College, the education of every student is seen as a 3 way partnership. We aim to support this partnership with the student, teacher and parent at all times. Three way parent/student and teacher conferences are held twice yearly, parent-teacher information nights, written Semester Reports, interim reports for Years 7-12, Open Nights, Information Sessions and weekly newsletters all help to keep parents informed. I encourage all parents and carers to become involved in the school to help ensure a successful transition through schooling and beyond.

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our College, you can take a 3D tour of our college facilities online, and I encourage you to view our website and Facebook page.
