Immanuel Lutheran College, Buderim Queensland

At Immanuel Lutheran College, children are taught that anything is possible. Striving for personal best, whether it be in an academic, sporting or cultural pursuit, is the message communicated to all students. “Immanuel offers a seamless education from Pre-Prep to Year 12 and creates confident, well-rounded learners who are creative, competent and capable of making a positive contribution to their community,” said Principal Colin Minke. 'Graduates performed above the state average with 22% achieving an OP 1-5 and 85% achieving an OP 1-15; 97% then received their first or second university preferences,' he said.

Part of Immanuel’s ‘education for life’ philosophy is realised through the College’s acclaimed Mt Binga Outdoor Education Centre which offers a four-week residential program which all students embark on in Year 10. The lessons taught at Binga build resilience, teamwork and relationships. But Mt Binga is only one part of Immanuel’s learning program.

“From Pre-Prep to Year 12, we are a connected and engaged community. Academically, students are engaged through activities that are relevant, authentic and life related. Our Innovation@Immanuel strategy provides students with ready access to flexible learning spaces with iPads, Surface Pros and other devices in a blended learning environment. In the classroom, students attend lessons but also engage virtually with their teachers when gaining feedback and completing online workbooks. Our learning management ecosystem provides teachers with information about each student’s academic, social and emotional progress that allows staff and families to work together to promote positive outcomes for each student,” he said.

So too is the physical space being transformed, with more than $15 million in capital infrastructure upgrades over the past five years including a new Environmental Centre, learn to swim pool and new Years 1-3 classrooms and outdoor covered spaces, that are multi-disciplinary and communal allowing students to work together in new and creative ways.

Immanuel has a six strand Arts program and offers Drama; Visual Art; Film, Television & New Media; Dance; Music and Music Extension.

The College follows the Australian Curriculum with learning enrichment opportunities in the Primary and Secondary Schools.

From Years 3 to 6, students use iPads. From Years 7 to 12, students use Surface Pro and Surface Book devices as part of the College’s integrated technology program. Teachers are trained to use this technology to develop 21st century learning skills.

The program taught at Immanuel’s second campus, the Mt Binga Outdoor Education Centre, is firmly embedded in the Year 10 curriculum which students attend for four weeks in Term 1.

Pastoral care forms a significant part of Immanuel’s curriculum and is embedded in the College’s Wellbeing@Immanuel Framework.
