St John’s Lutheran School is a school community that is committed to providing quality education while endeavouring to prepare children for the future in a caring, supportive Christian environment. We strive to provide a positive approach to education that will equip children for the future and lay a foundation for lifelong learning.
We offer Primary classes from Prep to Year 6, and a Junior Secondary program with Years 7, 8 and 9 and have been approved to expand to Year 10 in 2022 and then in the following years into Senior Schooling of Year 11 in 2023 and our foundation Seniors will be on campus in 2024.
Our academic guidelines are based on the Australian National Curriculum documents provided by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority, while the Bible and the Lutheran Confessions provide the theological foundation for our worship and devotional program. A blend of traditional and current educational practices provide a balanced framework for instruction and learning. The Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Educational Declaration underpins the educational program at St John’s.
Our Restorative Practices approach to relationships acknowledges that healthy relationships are vital for our lives, our learning, and our school community. Our aim is for students to develop a sense of responsibility for their own behaviour and an understanding of how the way in which they treat others has consequences that can either enhance or harm relationships.
