Why a Lutheran School?

Lutheran schools have been a part of Australia’s education landscape since 1839 and now extend into every state and territory of Australia except the ACT. Lutheran schools have experienced significant growth which has led to system support at regional and national levels. Lutheran schools are schools of the Lutheran Church of Australia and as such, are based on the central message of the gospel, namely the good news in that our acceptance by God does not depend on our own worth or achievements, but on his unconditional commitment (love) for us, evidenced through the life and death of Jesus.

The promotion of Christian growth and development in our students is a reflection on what Jesus has done for us.

Lutheran schools offer quality teaching and learning experiences for each child to reflect their individual uniqueness. They are also seen as a community where caring and respectful relationships are developed and become the essential element binding the school community together to live out the school’s ethos and values.

As part of the Lutheran school system, St Mark’s is making a difference as it respects the past, operates in the present and looks boldly to the future.
