"Peace Boarding is a place where our students can feel safe; where they are free to pursue their studies and gain life-long friendships."

Peace Boarding... a home-away-from-home

My name is Hope and I have boarded at Peace Lutheran College for five years, since I was a Year 8 student. My Boarding House is like my second home. I have always felt safe and supported and boarding students receive great care from everyone - not just the House Parents - we all care for one another like one big family. I really enjoy all the outside activities that are available. I have been involved in helping on the Rosie's food van that goes out into the community; I've competed in eisteddfods with my singing; and also played in netball tournaments. People tell me I have matured so much during my time at Peace Boarding and I'm sure this is because of the encouragement of the House Parents. Boarding at Peace has been a great experience for me and I would recommend it to anyone.

Peace Lutheran College offers co-educational boarding facilities across four boarding houses.

  • 'Heiwa' Girls House
  • 'Milyn' Girls House
  • 'Frieden' Boys House
  • 'Mari Mari' Boys House

We have boarding places for 110 students - 60 girls and 50 boys.

Our Boarding staff are dedicated individuals who bring a strong commitment to their boarding houses. As well as dedicated house parents, we also have a school nurse (Registered Nurse) and Student Welfare Officer on campus.

Secondary education success

Students come to Peace Boarding, first and foremost with the intention of leaving having successfully completed their secondary education.

Boarding students have a set routine to help them get the most from their academic studies

  • A certain amount of study must be undertaken each week
  • Dedicated study is supervised in classrooms
  • Boarding house parents liaise with teaching staff to ensure students are working to achieve their best

Working in partnership with parents and care providers

This vital partnership helps students grow to their full potential in their academic, sporting and cultural areas, allowing students, parents/care providers and staff to feel included.

This partnership is an important aspect of our community as it allows students, parents/care providers, and staff to feel included and to take ownership of what is occurring within our community.

Opportunities to grow in faith

Boarding students attend Trinity Lutheran Church fortnightly and have evening devotions and youth group on alternate weeks. The College Pastor and Congregational Pastor are also actively involved with our Boarding community.

If you are in the area, we invite you to book a tour of our school. Come and see why our students and their parents think Peace is such a great place to be for a boarding student.
