About Us

Message from the principal:

Crawford College La Lucia is a unique environment. Being a progressive educational institution, it provides opportunities for students to thrive as individuals. Teachers create a vibrant, stimulating and enjoyable environment where their aim is to teach independent thinking and to encourage habits of work and study which equip each student to succeed.

Students are provided with an education that is globally competitive, culminating in both the local South...

African national matriculation examination through the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) and an international equivalent endorsed by the Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority (VCAA) in Australia. La Lucia College has achieved excellent matric results over the past few years and our students have been recognised as top achievers, provincially and nationally.

Although academics is important, the College follows a holistic approach to education and students are encouraged to participate in the sporting, cultural and outreach programmes on offer. La Lucia College offers a wide variety of sport with specific focus on hockey and swimming.

A key focus is on self-discipline and the development of self-management skills which allow our students to become confident and independent, ready to cope with life’s challenges. Students are given a great deal of individual attention and privileged opportunities, but it is incumbent upon them to develop positive relationships guided by the Code of Conduct and an internally developed values system. In addition values of honesty, empathy, accountability, respect and trust (H.E.A.R.T) are lived by our students and staff.

Our teachers are selected for their outstanding teaching ability, top academic qualifications and mastery of relevant, innovative, educational methodology. The educational ambience in the classroom is one of warmth, excitement, interest and mutual respect.

A further positive aspect of Crawford College La Lucia is the multiform. Students are able to choose their individual combinations each day and are therefore able to attend school in comfortable attire.
Parents, students and the school forms part of a triangular relationship which is important for the development of the child in a Crawford system.
La Lucia College is where the magic happens!

TWINS – Behavioural Genetics
Watching a video of twins clinging to and stroking each other as they were washed after birth re-enforced for me that twins have a bond like no other. Whether they are identical or not, twins have shared their environment for nine months and are used to having each other around. But does this mean that …
