Prep Year

'Hello' from Sarah Rowan, Head of Junior School

"At Peace we believe every child is exceptional and each will develop differently - not necessarily in the same way or at the same rate as another.

And for this reason we see each child's progress as a unique journey, with their efforts being encouraged and even the smallest achievements being celebrated."


A child who is surrounded by nurture, respected for their individual learning and made to feel important, known and valued, will have solid foundations for future success.

It is this respect and individual attention that sets Peace Lutheran College apart - a school with a big focus on making sure everybody is somebody special.

Mrs Sarah Rowan
Head of Junior School

I honestly could not have hoped or dreamed of an easier start for our son. He is happy, confident and comfortable in his classroom. I think this was due to the induction which made for an easy transition. I just know that we've made the right decision in choosing Peace.

Learning in Prep

An academically significant year with the foundations for all subject areas being established, particularly Literacy and Numeracy. From the start of the year Prep students will:

  • Read
  • Write
  • Learn phonics
  • Learn the early stages of mathematical concepts

Learning in Prep takes place through appropriate, hands-on experiences with the intention of creating investigators of the future.

Students are encouraged to explore the endless possibilities of their learning potential, whilst being supported to think for themselves.

Learning is kept relevant and fun, as well as challenging, shaping students to be active contributors and participators in their community and the professional world in which they will enter.
