Mr. Care a hit at St James
As a school student, it's always good to have your teacher care about you. For the Year Three's at St James Lutheran College, they're receiving an extra measure of care and attention at the moment, with student teacher Mr. Dylan Care joining Mrs. Sharon Bentley in the Year 3 classroom.
“The kids were really excited when I told them that the teacher who’d be coming was named Mr. Care,” said Mrs. Bentley. “They all thought he’d be really caring – and they were right!” she said. “He’s built up an excellent rapport with the kids; not just the Year Three’s, but the children in other grades as well. He gets out onto the oval at lunchtime, and plays soccer with them all. He’s a real hit,” she added.
Dylan Care is in his third year at the University of the Sunshine Coast. He is completing a six-week Prac. at St James, and is set to finish next week.
“He’s teaching a Science Unit at the moment, all about heating solids and liquids. The children are really loving it, and they’re learning so much,” said Mrs. Bentley. “It will be sad to see him go.”

St James Lutheran College is a school of the Lutheran Church of Australia. Our approach to education reflects the teachings of the Lutheran Church and its endeavour to fulfill Christ’s command to go into the world and present the Good News to others, and to give them opportunities to respond to God’s Word.
At St James we seek to help each individual student realise their full potential and develop the talents they have been given. We are committed to providing our students with the opportunity to develop the ‘Lifelong Qualities for Learners’ outlined in Lutheran Education Australia’s Framework for Lutheran Schools:
Attributes and Abilities – individuals who contribute to communities by being self-directed, insightful learners; discerning, resourceful problem solvers and implementers; adept, creative producers and contributors; open, responsive communicators and facilitators; principled, resilient leaders and collaborators; and caring, steadfast supporters and advocates.
To support this mission statement and philosophy, St James Lutheran College aims to:
Affordable, quality schooling can be difficult to find. At St James Lutheran College, we pride ourselves on providing a supportive community atmosphere in which your son or daughter can grow. Students receive the best possible start in life because they are taught to respect each other and to respect themselves. They are also encouraged and shown how to succeed in today’s technological society.
Each child deserves a school that prepares them effectively for their future through offering guidance, support and encouragement. At St James Lutheran College, we work in partnership with parents to provide this environment. Each student is valued as an individual and is encouraged to develop to the best of their potential: academically; spiritually; and in the sporting and cultural arenas. We are in partnership with you and your children; your involvement in your child’s education is vital.
