Lutheran schooling has been part of this country’s history since 1839 and currently there is a total of 85 Lutheran Schools in Australia.
All Lutheran schools are based on some solid understandings about people and life.
Lutheran educators believe that all positive knowledge and learning is a great gift for the growth and welfare to all and each school considers it important to develop a spirit of service in its students so that in their lives, studies, relationships, ambitions, values and attitudes they reflect a commitment to living useful lives for the good of others.
A Lutheran school provides a caring environment and while the major focus is on teaching and learning, each school strives to offer far more than that. When a family joins a Lutheran school they become part of a community which strives to be a secure place offering warm, caring relationships and a safe environment for all.
A Lutheran School embraces high standards of teaching and learning.
Each school strives to provide excellence in education. It caters for a wide range of abilities, including gifted and talented as well as those with learning difficulties. The teaching program emphasises key competencies, stimulates thinking and integrates technology.
A Lutheran school is also committed to a wide range of co-curricular activities such as sports, music and the arts.
A Lutheran school promotes Christian growth and development. Each school integrates Christian understandings into all its teaching, intentionally employing educators who are able and active in supporting students in a Christian approach to life.
A Lutheran school provides regular worship and there is a commitment to encourage and nurture the Christian faith in each individual student.
A Lutheran school works as a team with parents.
A Lutheran school holds itself accountable to parents for the progress and welfare of students and it encourages parents to get involved in their children’s schooling and to participate in school life in the variety of ways that are available.
