School Hours

Redeemer’s school day has been designed to maximise learning opportunities for our students.

It is recommended that students arrive at the College from 8:25am to prepare for the day.

The Administration Office is open from 8am. Playground Supervision begins at 8:15am. Primary Students coming to school earlier than this are required to sit and wait in the eating area until released by the teacher on duty. Similarly, Secondary Students wait in the Secondary School Courtyard.
