Welcome to St Paul's

Greetings, and thank you for visiting our website.  I hope you have been inspired and motivated by what you have read so far about our College.

St Paul’s is a Christian College in the Lutheran tradition – specialising, and renowned for, its programs in equine, academics, agriculture, and boarding.

We are a unique educational setting, and community, that is committed to the core values of Love, Humility, Justice, Hope, Courage, Compassion, Service, Forgiveness, Appreciation and Quality.

Our staff are committed to ensuring our students are engaged in their learning in all areas of the curriculum.  We are also committed to the well-being of every student so that their experience at St Paul’s is both positive and productive.

To further emphasise our commitment to our students, I wish to share with you an extract from my address to the College community at the 2016 Awards Night.

As teachers, we are commissioned to prepare and empower our students for their respective future pathways.  A big task, but what does this mean?  How do we know what might lay ahead for our students?  I believe the greatest gift we can give our students if the gift of hope (Jeremiah 29:11) “For I know the plans I have for you” says the Lord.  “They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope”.  It is our commitment to instil a sense of optimism about the future; to instil a mindset of always considering possibilities.

Indeed, I believe we owe it to our students to do everything possible to empower them for a life of worth; that is,

  • To be effective communicators with all members of society
  • To be resilient through having the capacity to bounce back from adversity
  • To be problem solvers; to be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem
  • To be willing to use the gifts that God has given them for the service of others
  • To be receptive to change, wherever, whenever and however that might look

Please do not hesitate to contact the College to arrange an enrolment interview and tour.
