To provide quality Christian education for our children we:

  • strive to be a means of support to parents who seek to raise their children as Christians living in the wider community.
  • give opportunities for students to explore God’s love for them in Jesus Christ and His relevance for their own lives.
  • provide students with an education in a caring, Christian environment.
  • maintain a high standard of education which caters for the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social needs of each student.
  • provide students with a foundation for their future education and personal growth.

We will fulfill these aims by providing:

  • instruction in the Christian Faith as taught by the Lutheran Church of Australia, in a genuine and open learning environment where views are shared, discussed and respected.
  • opportunities to participate in worship and prayer through class devotions and chapel services in a way that is relevant and meaningful to them.
  • the employment of staff members who are committed to the aims of the college.
  • instruction in all curriculum areas, as required by the Education Department of Western Australia for a well-rounded education.
  • the establishment of appropriate channels which enable open communication between staff and parents.
  • the adoption of an effective code of discipline which places an emphasis on self discipline and positive reinforcement of good behaviour, while recognising that all students have a right to learn in a well-ordered, well-disciplined environment.
