It is most pleasing to also report that 100% of our students were awarded a Queensland Certificate of Education.
Parents play a crucial role in their child’s school success and we thank you for working collaboratively with us and supporting our endeavours in providing an education that ensures each student reaches their full potential. We also thank and acknowledge our dedicated staff for the incredible part played in these results and for their support of all our Year 12 students throughout the year.
Whilst these are outstanding results, what we are most proud of is this cohort’s persistence, determination, honesty, compassion and community-mindedness and their ability to choose the hard over the easy. It is these traits that give meaning to statistics, and it is these traits that underpin who our students are and who they will become. This is a group of young men and women of whom we are most proud and who deserve nothing but the best in whatever their future holds.
As a Ministry of the Uniting Church, The Lakes College provides a foundation for the development of Christian values, where students can experience the benefits of a supportive Christ-centred community. Our ministry enhances the development of Christian identity and ethos through a program of Spiritual Development, worship, pastoral care and service.
Spiritual Development at The Lakes College is viewed as the nurture, growth, and enhancement of a lived faith. In a Uniting Church school, Spiritual Development encompasses intentional processes where students are guided in ways of living their Christian faith. Spiritual Development includes daily Devotions, which are conducted by the Classroom or Pastoral Care teacher, weekly Chapel Services which are attended by all students, and weekly Spiritual Development lessons which are offered by the College Chaplain or Classroom Teacher in consultation with the Chaplain.
