College Council

Our College Council provides the governance for the School and is appointed by and responsible to the Lutheran Church of Australia.


In consultation with the Principal, the College Council provides leadership and guidance in areas associated with the School’s Strategic Vision, Master Plan, Building Programs, and Financial and Risk Management.

The eight members of the College Council volunteer their time and experience to ensure that Grace College continues to provide quality secondary education at Caboolture and Rothwell and endeavors to develop the school for the future.

Their own professional career interests span secondary and tertiary education, law, finance, business, engineering and church leadership.
