Lumen Christi College opened as a Catholic Co-Educational Secondary College in February of 1984 with an initial enrolment of 128 students. This was the culmination of two years’ work by the Steering Committee and Interim Board of Management, who devoted much time and energy into planning the campus layout and to providing sustainable learning facilities. The first cohort of staff, appointed in June 1983, played a major role in developing the curriculum.

From such small beginnings, the College has continued to grow and thrive. In 2005, the College was granted a permanent six-stream entry, and in 2010 it accepted its first cohort of Year 7 students. Today, there are nearly 1000 students from Years 7-12, who enjoy the opportunity to engage and learn within the wonderful specialist facilities that are located within the expansive grounds.

The initial development of Lumen Christi College was characterised by a sense of commitment, a sense of mission and a sense of faith amongst the foundation Staff, Board members, various Administrators and the initial parents and students. Their aim was to form a school community and centre of education that aspired to be of value to its students and of service to the parishes and surrounding communities. The same spirit permeates the College today, as the Lumen Christi community strives for excellence in educational standards and is dedicated to forming students who are leaders and who, informed by Christian values and with a strong sense of justice, are prepared to shape a better society.

Much of our College history has been captured in various school documents, publications and newsletters over the years. Please do not hesitate to contact the College for more information.
