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.
WALKATHON - FRIDAY, 21ST MARCH 11AM – 1.30 PM
In 2013 our major fundraising event for Project Compassion was the Market Day. This year we are moving away from this and instead, we are holding a Walkathon. This is a great way to raise funds for a worthy cause and for our students to be doing something healthy and active.
Students from years 3-7 will walk to Capalaba Regional Park, a distance of approximately 4 kilometres. They will have some fun activities in the park, a short prayer liturgy for Harmony Day/Anti-Bullying Day, and then walk back to school.
Students from P-2 will walk laps of the oval, engage in some fun activities and have a short prayer liturgy for Harmony Day/Anti-Bullying Day.
Full details about the Walkathon are included in the latest newsletter. Parents are most welcome to do the walk to the park or do laps on the oval. I encourage you to get behind this worthwhile activity to support Caritas Australia and the work that they do.
PREP ENROLMENT 2015
If 2014 is any indication, numbers for Prep in 2015 will again be healthy and we urge families to download (or collect from the office) an Application for Enrolment form as soon as possible to secure a place on our lists. Forms are due back by Monday 31 March. Parents are also encouraged to spread the word about our excellent prep program. The future of our school depends on our outreach to new families who are looking for a suitable educational setting for their children.
25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS
The celebration of the 25th anniversary of the school is a special opportunity for our community to celebrate its past, present and future. To help support the organisation of celebrations this year an interested and keen group of staff and parents (drawn from our School Board, Parish and P&F) are going to be gathering on regular occasions to continue the process of planning and organization.
The first major decision is that the school is holding a weekend of celebrations to coincide with the Feast day of St Luke on 18 and 19 October. (Please mark this weekend in your calendar / diary). More information will be shared with the community in the coming weeks and we shall make the 25th Celebrations a routine item on our P&F and School Board agendas. We welcome support from the community and look forward to sharing the developing story of our 25th year celebrations.
A reminder to Board members that the next monthly meeting takes place Thursday, 6 March at 7.00pm in St Luke’s staffroom.
P &F DISCO
All families are invited to the P & F School Disco on Friday evening 14th March. The theme is ‘Rock star’ and we look forward to an entertaining and fun community gathering. Our school Discos are always a big hit with children and families and we thank all those hard workers on the P &F who make these evenings a great success.
CLASS PARENT REPRESENTATIVES
Each year the School and P&F call for volunteer parent representatives from each class group. Please find attached a brief description of class parent representative duties and a nomination form. Parent representatives form an important link in communication for the school community. Interested parents please fill in the form attached to the current newsletter and return to the office via the classroom red satchel. Thank you.
P&F WORKING BEE -

A reminder to families that the first working bee takes place on Sunday 9th March and all families are encouraged to come along and weed and mulch the gardens.
