Set amid pockets of natural bushland and native gardens, our modern buildings and facilities offer an attractive and welcoming learning environment for children P-7.
ANZAC DAY -Thank you
A special thanks to Mrs Lorraine Osmond who prepared the three students, Elise, Holly and Michaela who sang beautifully in the Redland Combined Catholic School's Choir on Saturday morning at the dawn service. A good number of over 30 St Luke's students and their families gathered at the Cenotaph on Banana Street, Redland Bay braving the early morning cold, in the dark to pay tribute to our ANZACs who fell 100 years ago in Gallipoli. It was wonderful to see so many of our families in attendance. We were embraced with a chilling oral re-enactment of the morning 25th April 1915 involving gun fire, fireworks and what may have been the last words of Australian men filled the air. It was a poignant way to recognise the bravery and commitment of our soldiers so long ago.
Interviews have begun this week. These meetings are valuable and allow the opportunity to make the learning of students visible to parents and families. Discussion involving the progress of learning and next steps based on evidence leads into the cycle of reporting towards the end of the year. Please contact the office if you have missed out on booking online to receive information regarding times.

PREMIER'S READING CHALLENGE 2015
St Luke's students are invited to join in the 2015 Premier's Reading Challenge. The challenge aims to boost children's literacy skills by encouraging students to read widely for pleasure and learning, to develop their imagination, and to cultivate a passion for literature.
This year, the Premier has challenged all students from Prep to Year 2 to read or experience 20 books, Years 3 and 4 to read 20 books and Years 5 to 9 to read 15 books. Prep to Year 2 students can experience books through shared reading, listening to stories or reading picture books. The aim for the 2015 challenge is to reach a total of two million books read.
Students wishing to take part in this year's challenge can register by talking to their class teacher or Mrs Kerr in the library. Every student who completes the challenge will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier.
