Concordia Lutheran College, as a school of the Lutheran Church of Australia, and terms and conditions of employment will be in accordance with the Queensland Lutheran Schools Single Enterprise Agreement 2016.

A copy of the Agreement can be accessed by the following link:

The position includes the provision of:

  • Full board (2 bedroom, 2 level unit and private courtyard, inclusive of utilities and internet) for Boarding Houseparent and family if applicable.
  • A College issued mobile phone and Notebook computer.


Concordia Lutheran College is Concordia is more than a College, it is a community. Not only does it provide a rich learning environment where students are engaged and challenged, it also provides a safe and caring community where they are nurtured, encouraged and cared for.

We are a school of the Lutheran Church of Australia and have been a rich part of the Toowoomba tapestry since 1946. We have three campuses with Prep to Year 6 available at our Warwick Street and Hume Street Campuses. Years 7 to 12 is offered at the Stephen Street Campus.

There are numerous extra-curricular activities on offer so that students can be exposed to a broad range of experiences.

Boarding has been part of the College since its inception and we enjoy providing a quality education to students who come to us locally and internationally.

Concordia is a Christ-centred school that offers students opportunities to recognise their identity as a child of God, while still acknowledging and welcoming students who come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds.

Our values of compassion and care are instilled in students so that they see themselves as people who can make a positive and rich contribution in the lives of others. Numerous service learning opportunities are conducted throughout each year so that students experience the joy of using their heads, hearts and hands to enrich the lives of groups and individuals in need.


With two specialised Junior College campuses - Hume Street Campus and Warwick Street Campus - the focus on every child in our care is to ensure a balanced individual who is ready for the next stage in their school career.

At Concordia Lutheran College’s Junior College, we strive to provide a happy, healthy and safe place for your child during the important early years. Built on rich academic foundations, our dedicated team of teachers and support staff instill in our students, from Prep to Year 6, the importance of being lifelong learners, as well as proactive members of the community.

While our extensive resources allow for challenging academic programs, we also understand the importance of emotional wellbeing; for this, we provide carefully crafted pastoral care.


Students join Concordia’s Middle College from Year 7 to Year 9. These three years provide a critical link between Junior College to the Senior College.

While much of our approach remains the same – enviable resources, dedicated teaching staff, a commitment to lifelong learning – there are some subtle changes that will help prepare students for future academic challenges. These include working closely with a limited number of teachers, building up a truly supportive relationship, as well as the introduction of electives.

At the end of Year 9, our students are fully prepared for the advanced learning they will undertake at the Senior College and beyond. Concordia prides itself on being able to nurture resilient, independent learners; an invaluable skill for school, university, and life outside formal education.

Our Pastoral Care Program, specifically designed by our Middle College Coordinator, ensures that students continue as rounded, healthy individuals equipped with the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in secondary education.


Our Senior College, comprised of Years 10 to 12, is the final stepping stone of education at Concordia.

Our passionate staff work closely with students with a focus on future goals, notably post-secondary career pathways. This comprehensive preparation manifests itself in mature students who value lifelong learning, and leave with strong leadership skills and the ability to flourish in their next steps.

We seek to nurture an atmosphere of respect between teachers, students and families – we believe this has been an integral component of our success. Our pastoral care program includes work experience and life skill seminars suited to each year level. During their time at the Senior College, students can undertake workplace traineeships and school-based certificates to supplement their learning.


The boarding experience at Concordia Lutheran College is one of a warm, family-oriented residential community among friends. We appreciate that being apart from your child for long periods can be daunting; rest assured, we have worked hard to create a happy, caring environment.

Boarding life in Toowoomba teaches young people the importance of independence, respect and tolerance. We house a melting pot of students from a diverse mix of cultures, but each year see lifelong friendships made within our successful boarding community.

Concordia Boarding maintains a healthy balance between achieving academic goals, social relaxation, youth activities and service to others. This is why it’s such a special place for your child.

The majority of boarding staff live within the complex, ensuring supervision and availability at all times. Where we can, we help boarders with their off-campus cocurricular activities, which can include club sports, part-time jobs, school-based traineeships and TAFE courses.

A varied weekend activity program is offered to make sure students take full advantage of their leisure time. Shopping trips to Brisbane, catching the latest blockbuster at the cinema or camping out in some of the Darling Downs’ most beautiful spots take boarders away from the campus. Staying on-campus, activities range from firepit singalongs to mini Olympic Games.

As a coeducational school of the Lutheran Church of Australia, Concordia Lutheran College exists to nurture and empower young people to shape and enrich our world through a life of faith and service. We are a Christian community where God's message of grace is proclaimed, and this guides how we teach, live and work together.

Our Philosophy Statement

At Concordia each individual is valued. Consequently we seek to develop the whole person socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically as well as cognitively, through a broad range of educational opportunities and unique learning environments. Our vision is that students would become life-long learners and proactive citizens of the global community, utilising their God- given gifts and talents for the benefit of others.

Our Purpose

We encourage students to become:

  • Self-directed and insightful
  • Discerning and resourceful
