The Vineyard Difference

A commitment to fostering
inquiry-based learning

Vineyard Lutheran School is committed to empowering children to become creative and independent thinkers.  We aim to provide them with the skills to be successful in a world where the jobs of the future have not even been invented yet!  Our new classroom spaces provide for inquiry teaching (hands on and collaborative learning), break out spaces for small groups and individuals and a strong connection between outdoor and indoor learning. The rooms allow opportunity for nature play with agile furnishings configured according to student purpose and preferences.

A caring Christian environment

Vineyard Lutheran School offers children the opportunity to gain their education in a caring and supportive Christian environment.  We value diversity and respect other’s beliefs and cultures. Our school offers strong pastoral support and care. 
At Vineyard we acknowledge that the education of a child is a partnership between home and school, therefore we encourage parent involvement during class times.   
We are a family orientated community with an active Parents and Friends group whose focus is building community. 

A commitment to smaller class sizes

For children to achieve success, educators must be able to discover the individual talents of each child and tailor experiences such that THEY want to learn and discover their true passions. Our smaller class sizes afford such opportunities! 
A commitment to embracing new technologies, Vineyard Lutheran School is committed to utilising iPad technology in the classroom. We have 1:1 iPad usage, embracing new technology and creating a first class learning experience for our students.    
Our staff under-go regular professional development courses on the use of this technology in the classroom. 

A small but committed teaching group

The advantage of having a small staff is that we work well as a team.  We have the opportunity to communicate, plan and assist each other to create enriching learning experiences for your child.   
As part of our teachers programming we use open ended tasks, engaging students who need either extension or extra support.  We acknowledge that each student is different and aim to meet their individual learning styles and strengths.   
We provide Specialist lessons of German, Music/Drama and Sport, as well as providing our students opportunities to work in the school’s garden during lunch times.  Food from the garden is cooked in the cottage kitchen by the students throughout the year.
Our specialist Sport lessons incorporate our ‘state of the art’ Sports Stadium. We promote healthy eating and lifestyle and we are a member of the ‘Eat Well, Be Active’ initiative.
