Description

There have been Lutheran schools in Australia for more than 170 years. This book examines the first 80 years of that history through a series of biographies of the patriarchs, those educational leaders who established the rich traditions which still influence the church and its approach to formal schooling in the twentieth century. The eight profiles in this book not only cover the broad sweep of Lutheran educational history from 1839 to 1919, but also explore the personalities of people who were leading players in its development. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Richard Hauser was born in Laidley in Queensland and baptized in the Lutheran church there in 1946. He attended Blenheim and Forest Hill State Schools before undertaking his secondary education as a boarder at Concordia Memorial College in Toowoomba. He is a graduate of Lutheran Teachers College in Adelaide and holds various degrees in Arts and Education from Adelaide and Queensland Universities, including a PhD in history. Between 1970 and 2008 he was employed in six Lutheran colleges in four Australian states, and for the last seventeen years of this work, served as a principal in Queensland, first at Good Shepherd Lutheran College in Noosa, and then at Redeemer Lutheran College in Rochedale. As a secondary teacher his main curriculum expertise has been in English, history, drama and Christian studies. He has served on many committees and boards of the Church, including over ten years as the chair of the Lutheran Church of Australia Queensland District (LCAQD) Schools Council, and on the Board of Lutheran Education Australia. In 1999 he was the keynote speaker on the history of Lutheran schooling at the inaugural Australian Conference on Lutheran Education (ACLE) on the Gold Coast. Richard is retired and lives with his wife Sylvia at Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast where he follows his interests in reading, writing and keeping fit. Richard and Sylvia have four children and five grandchildren.
