Grace Lutheran College has one belief and two campuses at Rothwell and Caboolture, on Brisbane’s northside. Our Middle School program has been tried and trusted since 2008 and our Senior School challenges and encourages our young men and women to prepare their pathway at Grace and into the future.
Our school lives embraces and promotes our Mission Statement so that it is a fundamental part of our everyday College life: “Grace Lutheran College is by the grace of God a Christian community. It aims to continue the preparation of young people for a life of faith and service, so that God will be glorified in the world.”
Grace Lutheran College values our ‘Christian Community’, as part of God’s family. As a family, we encourage working together to build on the foundation laid by God, through parents and others, in the life-long process of Christian education. Within this family, teachers, parents and students come together to realise God’s plan for their lives. We aim to nurture each other into whole people; to assist each other in our work, leisure and service in the community in the pursuit of wisdom and the expression of love which reflects Jesus Christ’s life of service to us and God’s plan for the world.
Each of us is, as the Bible says, uniquely significant, and we exist to reveal and develop our God-given gifts, by example and guidance. We aim to draw on the insights of the past and the resources of the present to equip ourselves to reason, create, reflect, grow in faith and integrity; to be people of Christian conviction with the courage to witness to Christ in society. Our school family also exists to build and strengthen its communal life by exercising the self-discipline, concern for others, love and ultimately the selflessness that Christ asks of all who would follow Him.
The Lutheran school is an agency of the Lutheran Church of Australia through which the Church seeks to carry out its ministry and mission to the people of Australia.The specific ministry and mission of the Lutheran school is to provide quality formal education in which the Word of God informs all learning, teaching and activities and where forgiveness and grace govern the relationships of the members of the school community. In order to fulfill this ministry and mission, the teacher in the Lutheran school, as well as being a qualified and competent educator, will be one who is committed to the Christian faith as confessed by the Lutheran Church, is willing to identify with, uphold and promote the Lutheran ethos of the school and who will exemplify and model the Christian lifestyle in and beyond the school.
All students and staff at Grace participate in the Worship life of the College, particularly the Year Level Chapels each week and special sub-school or whole school services. These services are conducted by our Chaplains and Youth Workers, other staff and students.
Christian Studies is a core subject in all Year Levels and is taught by staff who receive training to qualify them to teach CS in a Lutheran School. Students, staff and families have many opportunities to be involved in service-learning through Grace on a local, national and international level, for example through Interact, Make Poverty History, World Vision, Australian Lutheran World Service, Watoto, Shave for a Cure.
The Middle School at Grace comprises students from Years 7-9 and is designed to be a place where students feel safe and valued while learning in a stimulating environment. A designated Middle School precinct, supportive teachers and ancillary staff, an inter-year buddy system and varied social activities allow students to make friends quickly and have a sense of belonging to a community. Core teachers in Years 7 and 8 provide stability and a continued strong foundation in literacy, numeracy, Science, Christian Studies and the humanities, while specialist teachers provide expert tuition in a range of areas: Health and Physical Education, Languages, the Arts (Performing and Visual) and Technologies (ICT, Lifestyle, Industrial). All students are encouraged to participate in the wide range of co-curricular opportunities available. Students, particularly in Year 9, have considerable scope for leadership.
Students in Years 10-12 form the Senior School at Grace and develop greater independence and responsibility during these years. The extended Outdoor Education programme at Googa in Year 10, Work Experience in Year 11, Year 12 retreat, comprehensive Careers Advice and Senior Leadership opportunities assist with this growth. There is a strong culture at Grace of Senior students acting as mentors to younger ones in academics, sport, performing arts and service activities. Students are able to choose academic or vocational pathways through a wide range of subject offerings, school-based traineeships and university courses.
Grace recognises that all students have special gifts and often need stimulating and challenging experiences to help them use them to the fullest. Our Academic Enrichment Department assists by identifying students with special gifts, devising relevant programmes, liaising with parents and teachers and establishing mentoring arrangements. A range of extension subjects are available for students at all levels along with university courses for suitable students.
Grace offers a range of services to support all students who need specialised assistance with their learning and welfare.
