Good News is founded on the confessions and traditions of the Lutheran Church of Australia.
In 1418, German monk Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenburg church, outlining his perceived discrepancies between the Bible and the church teachings of his time. Luther's main point of contention was the concept of Grace, arguing that the Bible was clear about forgiveness of sins only being achieved through God's work (Jesus' death and resurrection) and not via our own efforts or monetary payment. This eventually led to the Reformation and the start of the protestant movement.
Lutheran schools are centred on this understanding of Grace and we seek to share and live it out in our daily lives.
Luther was also strong in his belief that girls were entitled to the same education as boys, with everyone having equal worth. Therefore, Lutheran schools are co-educational and strive to ensure empowering opportunities are provided for all students.
Since 1984, Good News has been open to all families who seek a Christian education for their children and continues to be a modern and highly respected educational community within the Centenary suburbs. We seek to positively nurture, engage and transform every child academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually through Learning for Life with purpose and passion.
