Celebrating 175 Years of Lutheran Education in Australia

To celebrate 175 Years of Lutheran Education in Australia, we have worked together with St Paul’s Lutheran Primary School, Caboolture; Living Faith Lutheran Primary School, Murrumba Downs; and Grace Lutheran Primary School, Clontarf to create a video highlighting just some of the extraordinary programs at the primary schools and here at Grace College.

Game On at Grace

Our Extension Music Programme GAME ON (which started in Year 7 this year) has been featured in the national magazine “Australian Teacher’s Magazine” reporting on a recent percussion workshop by our teacher Claire Carvolth with the headline:”Conversation in junk just one part of superb accelerated music program.” Read the article here http://www.educationhq.com.au/magazines/teacher/

 

Grace Master plan

At Grace College, we are pleased to introduce to you the new Master Plans for both our Rothwell and Caboolture campuses and our building programme for 2014/15.

These major building projects are all expected to be completed by the beginning of 2015, subject to final government funding approval.

The Great Outdoors

Year 10 Students at Googa

Our Year 10 students all take a journey of discovery on a four week Outdoor Education Program, Googa.  To celebrate its 25th Year of operation, we have produced a series of videos about Googa.  Here is one to give you a glimpse into all the fun students are having at base camp.  For more information on Googa click here >>

Sharing Community, Thriving on Grace

You may not be aware that the Caboolture region is famous for being one of the largest suppliers of strawberries in Australia. Caboolture is also known for our Caboolture Campus.

The Caboolture Campus is a sharing, close-knit community with students that are thriving on the cultivation of Grace’s care and attention.

This video is about the Stewart family, one of Grace’s many warm and loving families, who work hard on their family farm to produce beautiful and tasty strawberries.

With thanks to Merv Schiffke (Ky’s grandfather and Taste ‘n See owner), and Sam, Ky and Tahlia Stewart (Grace Lutheran College and St Pauls Lutheran Primary School family) for your involvement and filming at the farm.

YEAR 12 STUDENTS CAN WIN 1 OF 3 IPAD AIRS

In order to track their progress towards a QCE (Queensland Certificate of Education), students are registered with the Queensland Studies Authority in Year 10 and receive a LUI (Learner Unique Identifier). This number appears on students’ Identification Cards and is used to link all studies that contribute to the QCE. Outside providers e.g. TAFE and AMEB also report to QSA using this number.

All students (OP and Non-OP) have a QSA Learning Account, which contains details of all their QCE studies and students need to log into the QSA website www.studentconnect.qsa.qld.edu.au using the LUI on their student card and password (ddmm of their date of birth) to check their details.

The QSA magazine “Student Connect” has recently been issued to all Yr 12 students. A guide about how to log in appears in the blue panel on Page 2.

As an incentive for students to log into their Learning Accounts, QSA is giving them the chance to win three iPad Airs. All students in Year 12 who log into their learning accounts between now and 31 August 2014 will go into the draw.

If students or parents have any queries regarding this matter, they should contact Mr Irvine or Mrs Darveniza at Student Reception and remember – you’ve got to be in it to win it!

Grace Lutheran College Video

 

This video provides excerpts from Grace Celebrates 2013, demonstrating how the College has grown over 35 years and providing an educational experience to our students that really is from the grassroots.

 

How to Choose the Right Secondary School for  Your Child

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing the right school for your child.  Grace College has produced a free guide for parents with helpful tips and information.

Have a look at the report written by our very own Principal, Mrs Butler, here http://choosingasecondaryschool.com.au/

The guide provides not only a great starting point for parents entering into the world of secondary education options but gives current Grace College parents the assurance that they have made the right decision for their child’s education.

We think Grace College ticks all the boxes when you are looking for quality secondary education.
