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.
UNDER 8'S DAY
What a fantastic day was had by all. Congratulations to Brigid and all of our Early Years' teachers and school officers for the preparation and running of the day. This is what community building is all about. Thank you to Allison Draycott and her fabulous team of students from Carmel College.
PEER MEDIATION - YEAR 6 LEADERSHIP
Yesterday at assembly four of our Year 6 students were presented with Red Caps. This is part of a leadership initiative involving peer mediation and the Red Caps distinguish these students in the playground as 'Peacemakers.' Our four leaders have spent three of their own lunch breaks being trained in helping students in the playground, modelling positive behaviour and enabling students with language to problem solve. We thank Mrs Burford for this wonderful initiative and look forward to other Year 6 students being part of this excellent leadership program.
WELLNESS WEEK FUN!
This week the staff and students of St Luke's focus on the importance of taking care of ourselves and each other. Current research outlines five dimensions which are pillars to overall wellness. In the busyness of everyday life it is important that we take the time to nurture each of these dimensions. The Five Dimensions of Wellness are;
Emotional = Recognizing, accepting and taking responsibility for your feelings
Social = Developing and maintaining satisfying relationships
Spiritual = Seeking meaning & purpose in your life
Physical = Health and activity for endurance, flexibility and strength
Intellectual=Mental stimulation, creativity and career exploration
