Our Community

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.

Advisory Boards

The School Advisory Board are an elected representative parent group who assist the Parish Priest and Principal. The Board 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 School Board may be involved in reviewing School Policies and procedures, and assisting in the development of the School Improvement plans.

The Board consist of the Chairperson, Deputy Chair and Secretary as well as 3 other parent representatives, the Principal, a Staff representative and the Parish Priest. This group meet approximately twice each term. The Board are organised into working parties and are responsible for the following areas: Working Bees Annual Parent development evening (eg: Cybersafety, Creating resilient children) Newsletter Coordinator The School Board also hosts an annual family picnic (in February) and various information gathering events such as a Parent Forum. Over the years, the School Board have also 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.

Parents & Friends Association

Together with the Parent Association, the School Board 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, Secretary and Treasurer. 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 produce a regular newsletter to keep the School community informed and invite all families to attend the meetings on a Wednesday at 7:30 pm 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.

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. Our Art Show has two exhibitions, one for parental viewing and one at St Luke’s Feast Day. 

School Production

The school production is held biannually at the Besen Centre in Burwood. This year’s school production is called The Grunch. It is a school musical where all students have a chance to sing and dance like no one is watching. It is an opportunity for our students to take main roles in the performance and shine. As with all activities at St Luke’s we encourage parental involvement and use this as an opportunity to further build our community.
