Meet the Redback Family

ADRIEN MONET

He used to have long hair, he cleaned that up now. He used to study political science, he cleaned that up too! He collects everything – from key holders to pins, stones, materials and bank notes! His dad hoards everything in the family home so he calls it ‘paying tribute to the dragon king’.

She is a new and proud mum of a sweet boy! Looking after her plants is her obsession and hopes to design and make her own wooden furniture one day!

She’s a pug enthusiast, although this may be an understatement! Her entire room is filled with pug merchandise and she owns her own pug! She was in a dance crew for 2 years and completed a hip-hop dancing championship. She’s a filmmaker and the first film she directed was an absurd comedy that made audiences laugh and cringe at the same time!

GIANNO PUNLA

In year 6 he was named ‘the tongue twister champion’ as no one could beat him at various tongue twisters! His very first job was at a bowling alley as a party host… he dressed as the bowling pin mascot too! Having a name like Gianno Paolo confuses people into thinking he’s Italian… He is actually Filipino… shh!

JEFF PORTER-DENING

He’s travelled across the globe but still thinks that New York is the greatest city in the world. He loves Liverpool FC and will talk about it at any given opportunity, seriously it’s a problem!
