Curriculum

The College follows curriculum guidelines set out by the Victorian Directorate of School Education, and guidelines used in other Lutheran schools.

The College curriculum is based on the Australian Curriculum, along with AusVELS in curriculum areas where the national curriculum has not yet been finalised. Teachers are involved in curriculum development on a regular basis.

Support programs for disadvantaged students are a feature of Lutheran Schools and are provided when the need arises. Open–ended, investigative tasks cater for students of all abilities.

International Baccalaureate

This year the College has committed to the adoption of a set of international programmes - the International Baccalaureate. Good News Lutheran College believes that the International Baccalaureate aligns incredibly well with its educational philosophies and values, as well as helping better support its amazing multicultural, international community.

Mrs Maria Denholm will head the Primary Years Programme (PYP), to teach children aged 5-12 in our College to be an inquirer both within and outside the classroom environment.

The Middle Years Programme (MYP), which will be overseen by Mrs Erin Bagot, is a five-year programme for students aged 11-16, encouraging them to make practical connections between their education and the real world.  

IB programmes aim to provide a series of rigorous, challenging and unique curriculums to authorised schools, focusing on developing students to be internationally-minded individuals and promote students' participation in a global society.
