Schooling is about much more than just teaching – it consists of academic challenges, learning opportunities and personal growth – so it’s important you take all this into account when choosing the right school for your child.
Lucky for you, Prince of Peace Lutheran College covers all of this and more. It’s evident in their guiding principle; Inspire, Learn and Grow.
Boasting two campuses in Everton Hills – one catering for juniors (Kindy-Year 6) and the other for seniors (Year 7-12) – the school is a co-educational Christian community who pride themselves on being welcoming and accepting of all, regardless of faith or origin.
Education-wise, the College delivers a robust 21st century academic platform in a nurturing and enjoyable environment, enabling students to fulfill their potential and enrich their communities.
Head of College, Phillip Hulland believes learning doesn’t always happen in a classroom.
“Sometimes learning is achieved in the classroom; other times it is achieved when you are cooking around a camp fire, trekking through the bush or spurring on your peers at the sports carnival. Sometimes it is found in a collaborative learning environment; sometimes it is interwoven with technology and global learning. Other times it is achieved through sheer dedication and hard work. But, it is always part of a journey,” he says.
Last year, the school saw 100% of OP eligible students (Year 12s) achieve an OP 1 to 18, 26% received an OP 1 to 5 and 9% received an OP 1 to 2.
While Phillip says it was very affirming, Prince of Peace’s mission is not only to equip students for success beyond school but also help them grow as confident, compassionate and caring individuals.
“The most important part of these accomplishments for me, as Head of College, is that 91% of our students received their first or second preference in university offerings. This means that the overwhelming majority of the cohort has achieved what they required to be able to pursue their vocation of choice,” he says.
“It is easy to focus on the end results. They are very tangible. However, education needs to be seen as a journey of many challenges and learning opportunities, each of which address each child’s academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs.”
If you want to check out the school for yourself, Prince of Peace Lutheran College will hold open mornings for both its senior campus on Tuesday 24 May and its junior campus on Thursday 9 June.
During the open mornings parents can participate in a student-led tour and meet the Head of College, as well as the teachers and students.
