Welcome to St Paul's Lutheran Primary School and Kindergarten.

Our school was established to provide a high quality education within a safe and caring Christian environment. It has been my privilege to be part of this wonderful learning community for the past 8 years.

At St Paul's, there is a feeling that we are all part of an extended family. Our teachers, parents and students work together to make that feeling of belonging a reality. We hope that you, through your personal interest, involvement and cooperation with us, will come to feel very much part of our school community.

Each student is treated as an individual and all are encouraged to grow spiritually, emotionally, academically, socially, and physically in a caring and supportive environment. This only comes about when we all join together as a community with positive aims and purposes in mind.

St Paul's is a dynamic, innovative and future-focused school where students are supported by highly dedicated staff within a positive and safe learning environment. We provide a very contemporary learning environment where our aim is not to teach, but to encourage students' to learn.

At St Paul's, we welcome prospective parents and families to visit us and take a free, no obligation tour of our facilities.  Please do not hesitate to call us on (07) 5495 5899 to arrange your tour alternatively, you can email us on reception@stpaulslps.qld.edu.au.

Agile Learning Labs have been set up throughout the school to suit developmental needs and skill development. Families are invited to arrange a visit to see first hand how the students are thriving in this exciting environment.

There are a variety of extra-curricular activities offered by the school. Some are weekly and others occur according to the school season. The most commonly occurring extra-curricular activities include the following:

St Paul's offers both Learning Support and Learning Extension. 

Learning Support assists students and teachers, where there are learning difficulties or disabilities (BOOST Program)
Learning Extension addresses the needs of Gifted and Talented students (RISE Program).

Learning Enrichment meets our students’ diverse needs through a wide range of exciting learning opportunities.

St Paul’s strives to make all newcomers welcome. New students in class are appointed “buddies” to assist them to adjust to their new school. A strong Pastoral Care program is extended to the students through its values program. This along with the Life Long Qualities of Learners is embedded into the curriculum. In addition to this, teachers endeavour to impart the importance of caring about others not just at school but around the world. Students actively support a sponsor child overseas and other charitable fundraising initiatives. The school’s Christian Studies course aims to inculcate a love for others and for God. Students attend weekly chapel and have daily class devotions. The services of the School Pastor (Chaplain) are available for students and their families wanting someone to share their burdens. Teachers conduct their lessons in an environment that is calm, happy and caring. Students are encouraged to respect other people, places and themselves in a disciplined way. Teachers guide their students socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually as well as educationally. Positive reinforcement is employed to encourage students to make good choices. Warnings are issued before sanctions are applied.

St Paul’s is a Christian school which strives to operate within a Christian values framework. This is evident in the caring way staff meet the educational needs of students and at times, reach out and support families in need. We have embedded into our teaching program a Whole School Values Plan. This Plan focuses cyclically through the year on the following values:

Love
Forgiveness
Compassion
Justice
Humility
Appreciation
Service
Hope
Courage
Quality
Christ is the model on whom our values are based and we take comfort in knowing that when we fall short, He forgives us. This free forgiveness is referred to as God’s Grace and is a key doctrine of the Lutheran Church and its schools.
At St Paul's we have set up an environment that offers the best conditions for learners moving in and beyond the 21st century. We offer flexible inquiry-based classrooms which are well resourced and technology - right to provide a strong academic program that both meets and exceeds the requirements of the Australian Curriculum and Reporting Authority (ACARA).

St Paul's is courageous in providing distinctive curriculum offerings for upskilling our students for the future. We provide flexible learning environments along with inquiry pedagogy to develop 21st Century skills of collaboration, critical thinking and creativity alongside the Australian Curriculum. Christian Studies, from Lutheran Education Australia [LEA], is an inquiry curriculum which also enhances these skills.
St Paul's Lutheran Primary School equips our community of learners with a Christian world view for living through sharing the love of Jesus. Our inclusive community provides a quality future-focused education in an ever-changing world, encourages and inspires a love of active lifelong learning.

Lutheran Schools have operated in Australia since 1839. All Lutheran Schools and Early childhood centres belong to a well organised system with support structures at national and regional levels.

Each Lutheran school embraces high standards of teaching and learning and strives to provide an education of excellence by recruiting well qualified, professional teachers. Incorporated into the learning program are the curriculum requirements and guidelines set in place by the State and Australian Governments with additional Christian learning that provides a culture and ethos permeated by the core values of love, justice, compassion, forgiveness, service humility, courage, hope, quality and appreciation.

In a Lutheran school, each student is seen as unique with their own personal talents and needs, with the potential to live useful and fulfilled lives in the world. While there is a major focus on teaching and learning, each school strives to offer far more than that. When a family joins a Lutheran school, they become a part of a community that provides a secure place that offers warm, caring relationships and a safe environment.

At St Paul’s, every day is an open day. Please phone us or complete the contact form below for your personal no-obligation tour of our school today.
