Enrolments Increase at Peace Lutheran College
Cairns, QLD, Australia – (News4us.com) January 30, 2012
Middle Schooling is booming at Peace Lutheran College.
According to principal, Rob Fysh, total college numbers are up eight per cent* on last year with most of the extra students enrolled from years 6 to 9; the middle school years.
In addition, prep and year 1 classes are also full.
According to Mr Fysh, the increase in numbers is down to a variety of factors.
“Our parents and students appreciate a well run school environment where students feel safe and are challenged to do their best.”
“The spirit in our college is strongly positive.”
“Each of our year 7 students is being issued with an iPad this year and that may have been an attractive proposition for some people,” he said.
In other developments, boarding numbers have also increased by approximately 25 per cent and the college is completing a large scale refurbishment to accommodate the extra boarding students.
Mr Fysh said he is buoyed by the increase in demand and especially the level of enquiry which he accords is largely the result of good word-of-mouth.
*student numbers increased from 555 to 585 with number of boarders increasing from 87 to 102 in 2012.
