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.
25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS
As a new school week begins I give thanks for St Luke's School community. The 25th Anniversary celebrations were very successful and well supported. It was a wonderful opportunity for past and present families and staff to catch up and enjoy the atmosphere of the occasion. For my part I wish to acknowledge and thank a group of P &F members and staff who lead the organization of various events that combined to make the weekend a gala event. From year 6 and 7 school leaders greeting visitors, to students performing and displaying their art, to mums and dads volunteering their time for the school and staff pitching in to make the event special, we thank you one and all. For a smaller to medium size school it was significant to observe just how important the school is to the lives of many people both within and outside our community. The Festival, Art display, Art show, Mass celebration and lunch aimed to bring us together and showcase our community and celebrate a significant milestone in the history of the school and they did this in an excellent way. Once again thanks to all those individuals and groups that made the weekend a great success. May God continue to bless abundantly our 'Little school with the big Heart'!
PREP 2015 INFORMATION EVENING
The Prep 2015 information evening is taking place tomorrow night Wednesday 22 October, 2014 at 7pm. This is an important opportunity for new and continuing parents to find out about St Luke's Prep program.
This meeting will be followed by a transition day for new students to be held on Wednesday 12 November, 2014. Students will be involved in various activities to help them make a smooth transition into fulltime schooling. A letter has been sent to all parents regarding this day. Thanks to the Prep teachers for their direction and organization of these events.
INTER-SCHOOL SPORTS CARNIVAL
Today students from years 5, 6 and 7 are participating in a local cluster sporting competition and play other schools in various team sports. St Luke's is hosting volleyball / newcombeball as it traditionally does and we look forward to a fun day of friendly sporting competition. We look forward to reporting our successes in next week's newsletter. Thanks to our staff for organizing and supporting our participation in these important sporting activities
FROM OUR P & F
I want to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful families out there who have donated their time, their talent and their ingredients to help make our P & F Sweet Stall a success yet again. The many ingredients and containers that were so generously donated by the greater school body of families helped some fantastic ladies create some fabulous goodies. These and all of the donated sweets were lovingly packaged, sorted and priced by a few excellent helpers last Friday, before being sold by a bunch of enthusiastic Year 4 parent helpers at the Sweet Stall on Saturday.
Special mention to the hall helpers Laura, Leanne and Regina – your slicing and packaging skills are amazing! Another mention to the following families/ladies who used their talents to cook – Rhonda, Kirsty, Clare, Rachael, Colleen, Anna, Angela, Anne, Bernadette, Jody, but particularly Amanda, Bianca, Sara, Kate, Anne, Leanne and Regina who put together extraordinarily large quantities of sweets for me. And lastly, thanks to Di, Alfina and Suzanne who fielded all ingredients, sweets and enquiries at the office!
If I haven't mentioned your name, it is merely due to a lapse of memory, not a lack of appreciation. Thank you again for the tireless efforts of everyone involved in the Sweet Stall. Figures will be published when finalised, but rest assured that your contribution has helped to make some money for our school!
