Lutheran Contemporary and Entrepreneurial Education in Brisbane
What does it mean for a school to provide “contemporary and entrepreneurial education”? One approach is already demonstrating improved outcomes for students at Living Faith Lutheran Primary School in Queensland, Australia. Living Faith provides kindergarten through year 6 schooling. The school was established in 2001, and in the last 5 years has been re-organizing around concepts of contemporary learning spaces and increasing flexibility of student engagement in learning. The new learning spaces have been introduced first at the upper grades. Student outcomes are studied to confirm that the approach is benefiting student learning.
Living Faith’s school motto is “Where every child matters…”. They believe that their approach to education with flexible learning spaces supports this motto and builds a community culture that reinforces this belief.
