‘Led by God, St Paul’s provides a quality education, developing an individual’s
potential and encouraging all to reflect Christ’s love in care and service to others’.

CHRIST CENTRED EDUCATION

St Paul’s was established in 1930 by the St Paul’s Lutheran Church, Henty. A group of dedicated people within the congregation saw the need for a Primary School that would provide a Christian Education for their children and just as importantly for children of families in the wider community. Visionary leadership and a highly committed staff have seen St Paul’s develop high quality education programs delivered within modern facilities.

OUR HISTORY

Our Biblical VALUES define who we are...

Love We daily reflect God’s love for us in our interactions with others.
Forgiveness We forgive others as God forgives us and in doing so, we recognise the wrong, seek reconciliation and begin anew.
Integrity We display a moral character based on honesty, truthfulness and faithfulness.
Patience We display patience through perseverance and self-control.
Respect We are considerate of others, honour their role and recognise their worth as individuals.
Justice We interact with others in a fair and equitable manner.
Cooperation We work together harmoniously, and in doing so, acknowledge differences but remain focused on achieving common goals. Service We give selflessly of our time and talents for others.

Hope We face the future with confidence, in anticipation of the possibilities God holds for us. Compassion We care for, and have empathy with, the situations of others as we walk alongside them. Excellence We encourage all to aim for excellence through realising their potential.

Lutheran schools have been a part of Australia’s educational 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, death and resurrection of Jesus. The promotion of Christian growth and development in our students is a reflection on what Jesus has done for us. There are 83 Lutheran schools throughout Australia which consist of Early Childhood centres, Primary Schools and Secondary Colleges.

Lutheran schools offer quality teaching and learning experiences for each child to reflect their individual uniqueness. Lutheran schools are communities where caring and respectful relationships are developed. These strong relationships form the binding element that allows St Paul’s to actively share its ethos and values. As a learning community, St Paul’s proclaims hope for the future grounded in the Lutheran tradition.

St Paul’s provides an easy transition for students to St Paul’s College in Walla Walla offering students a 20% discount off tuition fees when transitioning from our primary to secondary school.

We celebrate the word of God through…
Regular Worship and Chapel, Christian Studies Program, Service Learning.

With Christ at our core, as our strength and our inspiration, with children as our focus, we strive to provide quality education and develop skills for lifelong learning.
