CANBERRA TOUR 2015
A Canberra tour meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 26th November to begin preparations for the 2015 tour! The tour takes place every 2nd year and next year will be our 3rd tour at St Luke's. Due to popularity our most recent tour reached the maximum number of seats. Next year the tour will be open to year 5 and 6 students and we encourage families to come along and learn more about this excellent educational tour. The school works with Pam Walsh and EDUCA tours and they are a high quality educational tour provider with many years' experience. The tour takes place in the first week of the September holidays. More information to follow.
PREP 2015 INFORMATION EVENING
Thanks to all those current and new families who were able to support the Prep information night that took place last week. The process continues with a transition day on Wednesday 12th November and we look forward to welcoming the children and their parents on that day.
DAY FOR DANIEL
This Friday 31 October is the 10th annual Day of Daniel. The Day for Daniel is a National Day of Action to raise awareness of child safety, protection and harm prevention. It is about educating children and adults about keeping kids safe through child safety and protection initiatives. It aims to help empower our children to 'Recognise, React and Report' if they feel something is not right.
To recognise the importance of personal safety and highlight the importance of 'Recognise, React and Report, St Luke's students and their families are encouraged to wear something red e.g. red socks, hat or ribbons. (Please be aware that this is not a coloured clothes day but an opportunity for the children to wear a splash of red with their uniform.)
It is very pleasing to report to the community that a number of our sporting teams were successful last week in their interschool sports competitions. The Senior Oz Tag and Volleyball teams won their division Pennants and were undefeated. There were also a number of outstanding performances in European handball, Volleyball and Oz Tag in other age divisions. It's great to report that our students conducted themselves in the appropriate way and we should be proud of these achievements. A big thank you to all those staff that supported the day and provided this important experience for our students.
