Sydney Church of England
Co-educational Grammar School, Redlands was originally established
in 1884 and merged in 1946 Church of England Girls' Grammar School.
SCECGS Redlands continued until 1976 when it came under the management
of SCECGS Redlands Limited, represented by the Council comprising
businessmen, parents of students of the school and other friends of
the school. At this time the school became coeducational.
The school is located on two campuses 200 metres apart. School facilities
include the following: three well-equipped libraries with on-line
inquiry screens, CD-ROM terminals and audio-visual facilities; modern
gymnasium with facilities for a wide range of indoor sports; networked
computer classrooms; modern school bus fleet. There are seventy-eight
classrooms and specialist teaching areas; eleven laboratories; and
a school auditorium including all facilities for staging musical and
theatrical performances. From Kindergarten to the International Baccalaureate
Section of the school there is a tri-partite approach: curriculum;
co-curriculum and sport. The curriculum provides mainstream subjects,
reflecting both the requirements of statutory authorities in New South
Wales and the requirements of internationally-recognized education
models. The co-curriculum provides a practical adjunct to and reinforcement
of the curriculum. Vocational and personal skills develop in students
through weekly activities. Outdoor education, curriculum camps, field
study, travel abroad, the Duke of Edinburgh and Challenge programmes
draw on the curriculum and co-curriculum for content, planning and
procedure. A wide choice of sports forms part of every student's training
and education. From this element of the school's teaching come concepts
of team spirit, individual challenge, self-discipline, courage, physical
skill and self-confidence.
