St Peters Lutheran College – 2021 Report
Tim Kotzur, Head of College

As Head of College it is again a great pleasure and a privilege to contribute to AIEF’s Annual Reporting, and I do so for the fifth time. This had led to me reflect on the College’s partnership with AIEF and the real ‘human’ outcomes achieved in the past five years. The positive impact from our AIEF Scholarship Students over this period of time has been considerable and this has been further demonstrated by the excellent outcomes achieved by AIEF supported graduates.

In 2021 as a College, we had just under 40 Indigenous boarders with us in another COVID impacted year. The resilience, determination and dedication shown by our Indigenous boarders, who have on many occasions travelled considerable distances to be in Brisbane, has been once again admirable and I applaud them all. The challenges and disruptions introduced into the education sector by the COVID crisis should not be underestimated and both the AIEF and the Indigenous families associated should be commended for their pragmatism in 2021.

It has been again very pleasing to see our Indigenous boarders play positive roles within a variety of the College’s programs in 2021. These included students attending the College’s outdoor education centre ‘Ironbark’ for a five-week period in addition to sporting and cultural pursuits from all students. Special reference must go to Jirra from Cairns for being selected in the QLD Under 16 Rugby team and Thalia from Cairns for completing her first year of the academically challenging International Baccalaureate.

In 2021 we had two Year 12 students graduating. Kianga and Clayton who have both been with us since Year 7. It has been a pleasure to watch both these young people grow in maturity and confidence over the years and they are excellent examples of the ever growing AIEF Alumni spread across Australia. It was also very pleasing to see Kianga elected as a Head of House in girls boarding and she fulfilled her leadership responsibilities admirably.

AIEF are making real and positive contributions to educational outcomes for Indigenous students with their partner schools and I hope to continue this partnership into the future because it is vitally important for Australian society.
