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
A Festival 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. A meeting takes place this Thursday 18th September at 3pm.
CELEBRATING A VIBRANT AND PROGRESSIVE LEARNING COMMUNITY!
As the term draws to a close it’s an important opportunity to reflect on the contribution of individuals and groups in the school that make a positive difference to the community. The Spooky disco held last Friday was organized by our P & F for the purpose of providing a fun event for the children. Thank you to Adam Gould and his team of supporters for putting the night together for the children. Prep and year 2 attended separate excursions last week and from all reports they were outstanding in participation, good manners and behaviour. Thanks to all our excellent teachers, staff and parents for providing these educational opportunities. Later this week our term concludes with two traditional celebrations which have become a focus for our school. The Big Breakfast in aid of our local St Vincent de Paul chapter takes place Friday morning and we encourage full participation in this event. On Thursday at our final term liturgy we gather to pray and give thanks and also acknowledge outstanding achievement in our students through the Principal’s awards which celebrate achievement in academic, sporting, behaviour, social, cultural, artistic and religious areas of development. Finally we invite parents to a morning tea gathering in the Emmaus Centre on Friday after Big Breakfast hosted by Leanne Baker our Board chairperson and parent support coordinator. I acknowledge that a great community does not happen by mere accident but by the intentional and focused efforts of good people entering into partnership and facing difficulties and challenges together! Best wishes for the holiday break!
This Friday morning our Year 6 boys will serve our community at the Big Breakfast. Students and their families are welcome to join the staff at the Big Breakfast from 7:45am and indulge in a sausage on bread, hash browns, muffins, warm milo, tea/coffee or orange juice. All items will cost $1. The money raised will be donated to our St Vincent de Paul chapter. Please come along and enjoy the warm food and good company.
Congratulations to students who recently participated in the University of New South Wales English assessment and competition. A number of our students received awards in terms of distinctions, credits and merits. In particular Francesca and Talia achieved distinction to come within the top 4% of students in Australia. Congratulations to these and all our participants. Thanks to our Gifted and Talented committee for providing these and many other opportunities for our students.
PREP ENROLMENT 2015
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.
FROM OUR P & F
The P&F would like to thank everyone involved in organising the Father’s Day stall. The stall was a big success and raised $1,488.
