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
On Thursday afternoon staff and parent representatives are meeting to continue preparations for the weekend of celebrations to be held on October 18 and 19. An exciting list of activities and events is planned and we encourage everyone to come on board with the celebrations. A great mix of celebrations to suit children, families, past and present students, parents and staff is on the menu for the weekend. We are only 7 weeks away from the gathering and need the support of our current families, students and staff to make the event a weekend to remember! More information to follow.
CATHOLIC ZONE ATHLETICS SUCCESS
Congratulations to our Athletics team who gained 2nd place at the Redlands Catholic Schools Carnival yesterday. A mighty effort for a little school among some larger communities. A very big thank you to our HPE teacher Mrs Milligan and Year 7 teacher Mrs Prentice for organizing and supporting the children. We also acknowledge the efforts of a number of support staff who took part in the day. A large number of parents were also able to take part in the enjoyment of the day and we along with the children, appreciate this support. It's great to see the two blues among the front runners but more importantly it's a positive opportunity for a larger number of our students to be involved in a friendly competition. We also acknowledge our fellow Catholic Schools in the Redlands for providing a high level of community spirit that includes as many children as possible in competitions. We now look forward to the Swimming Carnival to be held in 4th term.
FATHER'S DAY ACTIVITY AFTERNOON AND FATHER'S DAY STALL
This week we honour the important contribution Dads make to family life and here at St Luke's the students will be able to bring a small amount of money along and purchase a gift for their dad. We also have a liturgy on Thursday and an afternoon of activities on Friday that focus on Dads. The activity afternoon is a traditionally very well supported and encourage dads to come along and be included in the celebration of father's day!
FATHER'S DAY LITURGY
Next Thursday 4th September we will be celebrating Father's Day with a special liturgy led by Year 1 White. We would like to invite all our St Luke's Fathers and Father figures along to celebrate with us. The liturgy will be held in the Church and will begin at 2pm.
IONA COLLEGE AND COMBINED CATHOLIC SCHOOLS MUSIC GALA
On Friday 5th September members of our school choir will travel over to Iona College to participate in a combined schools choir performance. The evening is a great opportunity for our young singers to be trained by an expert composer connected to the college and then perform for their families. We thank Mrs Osmond for her preparation of the children and look forward to an evening of high quality entertainment.
The annual spooky disco takes place on Friday 12 August and if previous years are any indication the evening will again be a great success. Students and parents are encouraged to dress up and come along and enjoy the evening.
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
Last night the P & F gathered for its monthly meeting to discuss and plan for a wide range of activities. The Festival, Spooky Disco, upcoming working bees, 25th Celebrations plus the usual reports and ongoing projects were tabled for discussion and further planning. A big thank you to the dedicated group of parents and families who support these activities and who are therefore building an even stronger St Luke's learning community.
