We are a community of Faith, Learning and Partnership. We are characterised by a safe environment with a supportive parent and parish community. We value each individual within our school community and commit ourselves to assist and challenge them to realise their spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical potential. We strive to contribute to the development of students’ sense of self-worth, enthusiasm for learning and optimism for the future.
St Luke the Evangelist Catholic Parish is host to St Luke’s Primary School. We work together to bring about the kingdom of God, in our part of the world.
We are a community of learners who draw on our faith and the strong partnerships we form with families, our parish and the local community to be the best learners we can be. Research shows that when schools partner with families and their communities, outcomes grow and children thrive.
School Advisory Council
The School Advisory Council (SAC) are a nominated representative parent group who assist the Principal and Parish Priest. The SAC operates in an advisory role in offering a parent perspective into school matters. They also act in an advocacy role among the parent community and local community for the school and it's initiatives. The SAC may be involved in reviewing School Policies and procedures, and assisting in the development of the School Improvement plans.
The SAC consist of the Chairperson, Deputy Chair and Secretary as well as three other parent representatives, the Principal, a Staff representative and the Parish Priest. This group meet approximately twice each term. Over recent years, the SAC has been responsible for implementing our new school uniform, school signage and working with local council to ensure traffic safety around the school car park and in Orchard Grove.
Together with the Parent Association, the School Advisory Council work hard to build the community spirit that exists within St Luke’s School and Parish. The Parent Association are a group of volunteer parents who support the school through a variety of fund-raising and social activities. A Committee oversees the yearly events and is coordinated by a Chairperson, Deputy Chair and Secretary . A general Committee is responsible for organising and managing specific events throughout the year. In this way we believe that all members of community have a connection and belong to the community. The Parent Association invite all families to attend the meetings on a Tuesday at 7.00pm as advertised. Each year through the generosity of families and local businesses, the Parent Association provides extra funds to the school and provides much needed resources for our children. We are very grateful for all the support we receive from families in all our school activities.
At St Luke’s we have many diverse range of activities that our students can participate in. Below is a list of extracurricular activities:
Prep and Year 6 Buddy Program
The Art Show is held biannually. It is a visual representation of the Arts curriculum. Here at St Luke’s we see every student as an artist. Student contribute the art show and art pieces are coordinated according to a theme. The Art Show is an opportunity for our students to demonstrate their artistic talents using various media and to share this with their families.
In 2021, due to Pandemic Restrictions, we held a whole school Dance Expo which was filmed and shared with families.
