The Lutheran Church of Australia has a rich history in education. Since the first Lutheran school opened in 1839, Lutheran schools have grown considerably and reflect the church’s commitment to serving its members and the broader Australian community.
Today, more than 38,000 students receive their education in over 85 Lutheran schools and 51 early childhood centres throughout Australia.
Enrolments in Australian Lutheran schools have grown by ten per cent over the past three years and are part of a global network of Lutheran education covering Northern Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia.
Lutheran schools offer quality teaching and learning experiences for each child to reflect his or her uniqueness. They are also a community where caring and respectful relationships are developed and become the essential element binding the school community together to live out the school’s ethos and values.
As part of the Lutheran school system, Prince of Peace is making a difference by respecting the past, operating in the present and looking boldly to the future.
