Coralie Amos OAM
Scholarship Appeal

Scholarships are made possible by generous donations from Redlands parents, staff, alumni and friends and provide an education opportunity to a student who may otherwise be unable to attend the School.

We are fortunate at Redlands to have a community with a strong tradition of generously giving back to the School.  Parents and friends of the School proudly support the enrichment of our students’ lives in many ways.

The Difference Scholarships Make

Coralie Amos (nee Hapgood) Redlander 1964 has dedicated her life for Service and helping communities in many different areas. From the Australian national Museum of Education, Meals on Wheels, the local hospital to more than 37 years promoting golf as a healthy sport for women and girls at the club and district level, she has given her time and passion freely without seeking recognition or reward. In 2021 Coralie was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for services to the community.

As a student at Redlands School, she was thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as Sports Captain for McDouall House and as Tennis Captain, winning the Hattersley Cup named after another dedicated Redlander Alison Hattersley Class of 1926 who left a significant legacy for Redlands. Coralie chose teaching as a profession, and received a Commonwealth Scholarship and Teacher College Scholarship.

For these reasons, this year’s Scholarship Appeal celebrates the service and achievements of remarkable Redlander Coralie Amos OAM, a woman who has contributed to the lives of so many. Someone who has truly Let Their Light Shine for others.

The means-tested scholarship will be awarded to a student commencing Year 7 2026 for the duration of their Secondary School education. Your support of this year’s Scholarship Appeal will help make this possible.

Means-tested scholarships help nurture two of our most cherished qualities, diversity and inclusivity. This contributes to Redlands' culture of being a highly respectful place where individuals are valued.

Redlands Foundation Scholarships

An endowment fund for a means-tested Scholarship was launched in 2010 by former Principal Dr Peter Lennox with the vision of providing opportunities for exceptionally talented students who will make a strong contribution to both Redlands and our society, as well as enhancing the diversity of our student body. Our goal is to award one means-tested Redlands Foundation Scholarship annually for the entire six years of a Redlands Secondary School education. 

Due to the generosity of the Redlands community, we currently have the following benefactors: one Year 12, one Year 9 (Belinda Oxley Scholarship) and one Year 8 student (Peter Lennox Scholarship). Two additional students will joining our Redlands learning community in Year 7 2024.

The 2026 Scholarship Appeal will be named after Coralie Amos OAM. The establishment of this prestigious scholarship honours and celebrates her outstanding contribution to service in a wide range of fields.

Scholarships are made possible by generous donations from Redlands parents, staff, alumni and friends and provide a Redlands education opportunity to a student who may otherwise be unable to attend the School. Thank you for your consideration and support.

Belinda Seaton

“I believe means-tested scholarships are important to ensure our vulnerable youth get the opportunity to attend a School that has so much to offer. I was fortunate enough to attend Redlands, it’s great to be able to support a student to have the same opportunity. Some of my best memories from Redlands was a great education with committed and supportive teachers and exposure to more than just an education. A Redlands education has helped in my life journey and career as it was a good grounding, reminder to take opportunities that present themselves.” Belinda Seaton, Alumnae 1974 and Philanthropist

Tracy Mulligan

“I really value the education that I had at Redlands and I would like to feel that I have the opportunity to give other students and future generations, exactly the same opportunity I received at Redlands.” Tracy Mulligan, Alumnae 1975, past parent and staff member of Redlands School.
