Abstract

Lutheran schools have a long heritage in Australia of offering Christian education within the theology of the Lutheran church. Early Queensland Lutheran schools developed as schools for children of Lutherans, while schools opened in the last twenty five years have been developed to offer Lutheran education to the wider community. Lutheran church and school literature suggest that Lutheran schools are characterised by a distinctive culture which pervades the school. This thesis presents research which explored the culture of Queensland Lutheran schools, comparing the research results with the rhetoric of the Lutheran church and schools.
