Welcome to our St Luke's Website!

St Luke’s Catholic Parish School caters for children from Prep through to Year 7. In partnership with our families, our Parish, the Catholic Education Centre and wider community, St Luke’s offers a curriculum which supports the growth and development of the whole child: socially, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, physically.

Our staff respects the uniqueness and dignity of each child and base teaching/learning programs on sound educational theory and practise. 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.

Community News


Last week the planning group gathered to continue the process of organizing the upcoming celebration which is now only 6 weeks away. A detailed report and information will be given at the P&F meeting to be held on Monday 15th September and follow up meetings will be held in the first weeks back at school in term 3. An invitation will be forwarded to families in the near future. A very big thank you to the wider group of excellent parents, staff and students who are working hard to make this a celebration to remember. More information to follow.

St Luke's Festival - 18th October


The Brisbane Writer's festival was a great experience for the year 6 and 7 students who went and met three famous writers Morris Gleitzman, Dave Hackett and Pat Flynn.

We saw Morris Gleitzman's play, 'Loyal Creatures', which was very emotional about a man, his son and their horses that went to war. Dave Hackett explored with us how we could keep the story going on with the use of cartooning and that you could write about anything you want because it is your book.

Pat Flynn showed us his new book and how to make sentences more interesting when we are writing. We got the opportunity to get books signed and talk to the authors as well as ask questions. We learnt a lot about writing and how emotion plays a big role in a fantastic story.

The authors were so funny and were really engaged with what they were saying. I would highly recommend this day as it is fun, exciting and makes you want to write no matter who you are. We would like to thank Mrs Kerr and Mrs Burford for taking us to the Brisbane Writer's Festival. A great day!

Last Thursday we celebrated Father's Day with a special liturgy led by Year 1 White. The Year 1 students did a fantastic job and the liturgy was beautiful. On Friday afternoon we were impressed to see so many dads, grandads and uncles at school for our activities afternoon. What fun was had and it was great to see everyone joining in and having fun. Thanks also to the P&F for running the Father's Day stall and providing such great gifts to purchase.

Father's Day Activities

On Friday afternoon (5th September) our school choir lead by Mrs Lorraine Osmond travelled to Iona College to participate in the massed Primary Catholic Schools Choir performance. St Luke's joined a number of schools and combined with them for a wonderful showcase of musical talent. It's always pleasing to see our students have opportunities to 'shine' in a variety of areas in school life. It is also a great way for students to represent the school in positive ways and promote St Luke's. Thanks to Mrs Osmond for organizing our participation in this event and to parents for your ongoing support for events like these.

The annual spooky disco takes place on Friday 12 August and if previous years are any indication the evening will again be a great success. Students and parents are encouraged to dress up and come along and enjoy the evening.

25th Anniversary 1989-2014

Prep 2015 interviews for new families are now finished. Interviews for the siblings of children already enrolled at St Luke’s will begin in Term 3. It is very pleasing to share with the community that demand for enrolment in St Luke’s Prep is very high at the moment and this is a positive reflection on the students, staff and families of St Luke’s. It also speaks positively of our connection with St Luke’s Child Care Centre which has been an education blessing for the community.
