Teaching and learning

A Lutheran school embraces high standards of teaching and learning. Each school strives to provide an education of excellence

A vision for learners and learning

A vision for learners and learning in Lutheran schools provides a framework for decision-making in Lutheran schools and Lifelong Qualities for Learners (LQL) articulates both core values for Lutheran schools and also aspirational attributes and abilities for learners



LEA service learning 

The LEA vision is that service learning is central to Lutheran schools.  The mission of the Lutheran school demands that service becomes an integral part of the school and its practices.  Service learning brings service to the forefront by embedding the concept into teaching and learning programs across all levels of the school community.




CS Curriculum Framework 

The Christian Studies Curriculum Framework is part of Lutheran Education Australia's (LEA) ongoing provision of resources for the teaching of Christian Studies in Lutheran schools which began with the Australian curriculum LIFE, launched in 1998. 



Indigenous education

The LCA has had a long history of involvement in Indigenous education. From 1839, when the first Lutheran missionaries taught Indigenous children in their own Kaurna language on the banks of the River Torrens in South Australia, and provided lessons for the Indigenous children at the Zion's Hill Lutheran mission in Queensland, through to today, Indigenous education has been an important feature of Lutheran Education Australia.
