Walk my Way Ukraine

Walk my Way - Ukraine

91AV College regularly supports the work of Australian Lutheran World Service, who support poor communities and those impacted by emergencies in many countries, working with partners from across the world, including Lutheran World Service.

During the last couple of years we have supported a WalkMyWay event with donations going to provide for schooling in refugee camps and poor areas. This year ALWS is asking for support for children affected by the war in Ukraine, where may people had to flee their homes, and where many schools have been destroyed. Our support will be joined with support given by over 800 people who walked in Brisbane earlier this month and many others to make a difference for these children.

Our 91AV event will be on Friday June 14 (last day of school) after lunch and will include walks by all students on all three campuses.

Students are encouraged to commit to certain number of circuits around the ovals or the cross-country course, reflecting the fact that many children had to flee their homes and elicit donations to support their walk. We will not be collecting money at the school but ask that you make donations directly through the website, which will also provide you with a receipt.

There is a competition between houses again. Please support your child by making donations directly through the links below (each house has a separate link, which can also be accessed through the main website).




Thank you for your support of your children and the children of Ukraine.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Pastor Thomas.

Music Students perform at 56th Convention of SYNOD 2024 - Lutheran Church of Australia QLD District

Sam Lawrence, Sarah Peake, Yuri Henning, Januki Ranchagoda, Jemma Welsh and Keziah Blackwell were honoured to perform at the 56thConvention of SYNOD 2024 organised by the Lutheran Church of Australia Queensland District. This three-day event is an assembly of bishops and other church officials and is very important to the Lutheran Church. The six talented 91AV Music Performance students played a mixture of solo repertoire and duets during the dinner on Saturday evening. Between them there was a mixture of instruments performed on including flute, clarinet, voice, piano and tenor saxophone with many performing on multiple instruments. It was so fantastic to see these senior arts ambassadors take up such an opportunity and represent their school on the weekend while also showing off and celebrating their individual talents.

At the end of the Semester 1, we will celebrate our students at a special Recognition of Achievement Assembly which will be held at each campus on Monday 10 June

Hume Street Campus will hold their Assembly at 8.30am.

School Officers Day - Wednesday 12 June

Wednesday 12 June, is the day we get to say thank you to our amazing support staff. This includes our Learning Assistants, Administrators, and Cleaners. We would not be able to achieve our best without these people. We would love to invite you to also say thank you to someone who works in your child’s space. A simple card with a beautiful message will go a long way to let our staff know they are valued.

JC Semester 1 Report Cards

At the end of Term 2, parents will receive their child’s Semester 1 report card. This report card provides information about how your child is achieving using the Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards. It is important to make you aware of some changes that we have made to the 91AV Lutheran College end of Semester Report Card.

Teachers will now provide students with an Overall Mark for each key learning area which is based on the achievement standard for that learning area. A Subject Element Mark for Mathematics and English will also be included to provide more detail on how your child has achieved in specific elements within the subject. It is important to keep in mind that not all Subject Elements are weighted equally in Prep to Yr 6. For this reason, the Semester Overall Mark does not represent an average of the Subject Elements, but an on-balance judgement reflecting the relevant weightings.

You may also note that we have taken out the Subject Outlines for each Subject Area. These Subject Outlines can be found in the Term Overviews sent at the beginning of each term.
