Message from the Principal
It is a privilege to be the principal of such a wonderful learning community.
Lakeside College is Prep – Year 12 Christian College in the Lutheran traditional that welcomes students and families from all backgrounds. As a Lutheran school, we are part of a national system of over 86 Lutheran Schools in Australia, representing around 40,000 students. Our College shares a tradition of 170 years of academic excellence and an extensive global education network.
At Lakeside College, we seek to support parents to educate their children. The father of the Lutheran Church, Martin Luther, wrote “if we want capable and qualified people…we really must spare no effort, time and expense in teaching and educating our children to serve God and the world.” There is no greater task for the adults in our communities than to ensure our children receive a quality education that supports the values of their families.
Our learning community views students holistically and as such seek to support them to develop academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. We have a strong learning culture, which is supported by excellent pastoral care, wider arts and sporting activities, excursions and camps. Our focus is on every student being supported to reach beyond their personal best.
School staff in all areas of the College are committed to continually developing their practice to meet the individual and ever changing needs of the learners in our community. The College also provides parent support programs for parents which assist them to be heavily involved with their child’s education.
We are a growing school at an exciting stage in our history. At our largest, we will be a learning community of 676 students, which allows each our sub schools to maintain close, meaningful and supportive relationships.
I look forward to meeting you and discussing how Lakeside College can support your child’s learning journey.
Mr Thomas Brennen
