About Peace

A Message from the Principal - Mrs Elisabeth Fenske

Peace Lutheran College is a quality Christian co-educational Kindy-Year 12 school in Cairns. We offer a quality schooling experience where God's love for every person is evident and informs all that we do. We cater for a diverse range of students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Our boarding facilities allow us to serve students from a wide area of North Queensland, Torres Strait, South East Asia as well as families from further afield.

We are committed to encouraging wellbeing and the pursuit of success; academic or otherwise, and to develop young men and women of character in a Christian community. Developing the whole person is at the heart of what we do at Peace Lutheran College, ensuring that Peace is a place where everyone feels valued; a place where everybody is somebody.

I encourage you to visit our College to discover for yourself why we are constantly acknowledged for our school's peaceful, friendly and welcoming culture. I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you.
