About the LSA
Lutheran schools, kindergartens and child care centres in South Australia, Northern Territory and Western Australia are members of the Lutheran Schools Association of SA, NT and WA Incorporated [LSA].
Northern Territory 3 schools 1 child care centre
Western Australia 2 schools
These 46 education facilities are educating over 15,000 students and employing over 2000 staff.
The oldest continuing Lutheran school was established in 1839 and had its beginning in the nineteenth century. The number of Lutheran schools continues to grow and 14 have commenced in the last 20 years.
All schools are systemic. System schools receive Commonwealth recurrent funding through the Lutheran Schools Association and accept the association as the authority in dealing with the Commonwealth Government.
LSA member schools elect a council to provide support for and general oversight of schools, while committees in the areas of education, Indigenous education, industrial, finance and OHSW support the work of the council. The council reports to the Lutheran Schools Association, the Lutheran Church of Australia, South Australia/Northern Territory District and the Lutheran Church of Australia, West Australia District.
