Radford Reaches IN

Radford Reaches IN is a community-based initiative formed by our three community groups: Radford Foundation, Collegians and Parents & Friends Association. The aim of the initiative is to provide support to families within the Radford College community that are suffering from loss of job, family separation, medical illness or injury.

The Radford Reaches IN logo. Why wattle?

Wattle is a symbol of unity across the three community groups.

On National Wattle Day 2020, Governor-General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) said: “"[Wattle] is the national symbol of unity and resilience, and don't we need that at the moment. We are going through a difficult period at the moment and unity and resilience - it's like a sum, it's going bigger than the two elements and it gives us national strength."
