Boarding Community

An active and vibrant group of students and dedicated staff

The Peace Boarding community serves boarding students ranging in grade from Year 7 - Year 12.

The number of students accepted into Boarding from each school year level is capped. This ensures our Boarding has a healthy balance of age groups and gender. This balance is essential for forming meaningful friendships, as well as the emotional growth and maturity of each of our boarding students and it also helps to keep the student make-up of our boarding houses as close as possible to a real home environment, with siblings.

A multicultural community environment

Peace Boarding has students from around Queensland and other states of Australia, Cape York and the Torres Strait, PNG, Indonesia, Africa and India, to name but a few areas.

I came to Peace Lutheran College as a Boarding student from grade 7 and boarded until I graduated in grade 12. I have had a great time and have made some great friendships. I found Boarding creates more friends and stronger relationships between students. Another student in my Boarding House has become one of my closest friends. Boarders participate in really good weekend activities – I enjoyed paintball, going to the cinema and watching the Cairns Taipans play. I also got involved in Club Basketball, playing alongside other Peace students who were also Boarders. And I also played Touch Football – we had two teams completely made up of Peace Boarding students! The thing I really like is that it has a really diverse culture with people from all around the world. The teachers also provide great help when preparing for exams and assignments. And Boarding provided a lot of study time which really helped me stay on top of my studies. The College has provided me with a great education which will help me with further study. I plan to study Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at University of Queensland (UQ).

Sport and being social

Along with academics, Peace Boarding provides a number of sporting and social opportunities through club sports, as well as school based teams, including rugby league and rugby union, touch football, netball, basketball and AFL; with social activities scheduled each school term, including tenpin bowling, roller skating, laser tag and trips to the beach and Tablelands communities and attractions in the Hinterland region.
