Principal Elisabeth Fenske

EFenskePeace Lutheran College stands out as a quality Christian co-educational Prep-Year 12 school in North Queensland. It stands out because we treat each other, students, staff and parents, with care and respect. We allow individuals to learn and develop in ways appropriate to them, and we take our mission seriously.

We try hard to do what we say we do – to provide an authentic quality schooling experience where God’s love for every person is evident and informs all that we do. We are a community inclusive of many backgrounds and cultures, Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, local and overseas, who work and play alongside each other. Our boarding facility allows us to serve a wide area of North Queensland, Torres Strait and other South East Asian nations. Service is our way through a Christ-centred education with excellence our goal and people our priority.

I encourage you to visit us in person and to see for yourself who we are and how we operate. I would be delighted to meet you and to show you around.
