We seek to uphold the values of the Christian faith in all we do as a School, at the same time recognising and celebrating the diversity that is within our School community and the needs of individuals. We invited our students to live a life in response to Jesus Christ while students of all faiths and none are welcomed and respected.
Our beautiful School Chapel is regarded as being at the heart of our School and has a prominent location at the entrance to the Senior Campus. Students from Prep to Grade 12 participate in weekly Chapel services and the year commences with services in the Chapel for staff and Senior Campus Houses where we reflect on the year ahead and pray for every aspect of School life.
Christian Studies classes from Prep to Grade 10 provide students with an opportunity to reflect on their own beliefs and outlook, gain a familiarity with the Bible, the life of Jesus, a Christian worldview and world religions. Students have access to chaplaincy services with the School Chaplains and benefit from a well-established pastoral care programme.
Since the School’s earliest days, there has been a close association between Launceston Grammar and St John’s Anglican Church. The School continues to meet each year at St John’s for the Senior Campus Founder’s Day Service and some members of the School community are involved in their Sunday services and Friday evening youth programme.
Students who are looking to go deeper in their faith or to explore questions about faith and life or the Bible have opportunities to do so in lunch time groups, camps, a retreat program and numerous Christian service activities. Members of the School community, particularly parents, meet each fortnight at the Junior Campus to pray for the School.
The Launceston Grammar Virtues, which we seek to nurture in the hearts of students, come from the Bible and the School’s Christian faith. The School’s virtues are:
Students are actively encouraged to help people in need within the School community, the local community, through Anglicare as well as other partner organisations, and our global community.
