We Represent 42 Co-Educational Schools Across 3 States

Lutheran schools and early years centres provide a Christ centered quality education for young Australians. The gospel of Jesus Christ informs all learning, teaching and human relationships. We aim to set up and maintain a framework of Christian attitudes and relationships, with each child knowing they are a special child of God. We also aim to grow Christian attitudes and relationships which permeate and integrate through a child’s entire life and work, thereby helping them grow as a caring community of lifelong learners. We seek to inspire young people to learn and serve, as we prepare them for their life beyond school.
