Learning in Residence
Concordia Lutheran College is pleased to introduce an innovative new concept in boarding for Middle and Senior College students in Toowoomba – Learning in Residence.
Concordia’s boarding students now benefit from a dedicated after-hours study program to enhance their studies and boost academic outcomes.
The College library at our Stephen Street Campus is open until 8pm from Monday to Thursday during term time, providing dedicated support from our experienced Teacher-Librarian and a range of talented and professional educators. Pre-service teachers from the University of Southern Queensland work with the students in the Library Resource Centre until 8pm from Monday to Thursday.
Residential Tutors are available both in the formal academic prep sessions and at times outside of formal study periods to assist students in their studies.
Our goal for the Learning in Residence program is to cultivate a deeply embedded culture of learning and academic growth within our boarding community.
Our female boarders now reside in Giabal House on our Stephen Street Campus. This modern, refreshed facility provides our female boarders with a centrally located residence, so they no longer need to cross South Street, as they have done in the past.
This new location has provided new opportunities for enhanced pastoral care across our girls and boys boarding houses and has provided an additional level of security for all boarders. Our secure residential facilities include external camera surveillance and all boarding staff living onsite.
Pastoral support is provided through specialist House Parents and a dedicated Housemother who works with students, parents, staff and the wider school community to help students enjoy the residential experience.
Our boarders now all reside in the one, dedicated boarding precinct. The girls and boys boarding houses are separate with small, single gender common rooms on both levels of the boarding houses.
The two houses are joined centrally by a coeducational common room area where students can relax and enjoy social time together. On weekends there is usually a barbecue breakfast for the boarding community to enjoy in the beautiful outdoor area located between the two boarding houses.
The implementation of these recent changes and upgrades has created a truly modern, coeducational residential learning community at Concordia Lutheran College.
