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.
Thanks to our parents and staff for supporting the P and F meeting last night as they continue to plan for a number of up coming activities and events. Parents please be advised that the P and F are proposing a levy increase in a non-festival year. Please find further details attached in this week's newsletter. A motion will be put forward at the P and F AGM to be discussed and then voted on. It's important that families read and review this material to be well informed as we lead up to the AGM meeting.
A big thank you to a small and dedicated group of families and staff who turned out on Sunday morning to participate in the working bee to clean up gardens at the front of the school. Good progress was made in a number of areas and we thank Jan McDairmid our hard working prep aide for leading this activity. Great to see some new and old faces among the dedicated supporters. Families who worked at the working bee on Saturday need to record their hours on the Levy Rebate Cards located in the office.
ONE TO ONE PARENT INFORMATION
Information is being prepared for current year 3 and 6 students in relation to the One to One computer program. Year 6 families will receive information letting them know more about the options and final steps for the program. Year 3 families will receive a date claimer for a One to One parent evening for early term 4 and Question and Answer booklet explaining the program in detail and answering all the major questions that usually come up with the program. Mrs Kerr is finalizing items with finances and admin and then information will be passed onto families. I would like to thank the team of staff who support contemporary learning within our school community. More information to follow.
FIRST EUCHARIST AND CONFIRMATION
Congratulations to all our students and their families who made their First Eucharist and Confirmation over the weekend. St Luke's school is part of a wider parish community founded on Catholic traditions and values and the sacraments of initiation are a key part of the faith and spiritual development of our students. We thank families for supporting their children and providing the role modelling that our young people need to take this journey of development.

FOCUS ON LEARNING: YEAR 1 BLUE
In Year 1 Religion we have been learning about Noah's Ark. We wrote that God was unhappy with the world and he sent a flood. He let two of each animal onto the ark. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights. At the end of the flood, God put a rainbow in the sky as a promise that he would never flood the world again (Regan, Ryley and Azaria).
In maths we have been learning and practicing addition and takeaways with three digit numbers! We also learnt about graphs and we had to graph a box of smarties! In our morning rotations we do a lot of maths games and activities, we love it (Maddie and Dakota)
In English we learnt about narratives and fairy tales. We have read lots of books like: little red riding hood, The three little pigs, The three billy goats gruff and Jack and the beanstalk. With lots of practice we became good at writing stories! (Luke, Tom and Traig)
