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.
YEAR 6 THANKSGIVING MASS
On Thursday evening 26th November the families of year 6 students gather to celebrate a 7 year learning journey at St Luke's. We celebrate mass and then follow with supper and presentations. I thank all those who will contribute to this excellent celebration of the students, their families and our school. I also acknowledge a group of dedicated staff and parent supporters who will make this occasion one to remember.
FAMILY CHRISTMAS CAROLS CELEBRATION
Our Christmas Carols night will be held in the Emmaus Centre on Wednesday 2nd December beginning at 6.30pm. Children may come dressed in Christmas clothes or as a Christmas character e.g. shepherd. They will be sitting in their class groups and will need to be here at 6.20pm so that we can start on time. All children are singing and are expected to attend. We respectfully ask that younger siblings stay seated with their parents during the carols.
END OF YEAR LITURGY
We will be celebrating our end of the year liturgy on Friday, 4th December at 10.45am in the Church. This is a great opportunity to thank God for all the blessings we have received during the year and to farewell staff and children who are leaving. Children will return to their classrooms after this and will be dismissed from there at 12 noon.
INQUIRY BASED LEARNING
Year 6 White - Maths Investigations
This term year six students got the chance to choose and solve an investigation that they were interested in. We chose Investigation 3 – "Educational Entrepreneur". In this investigation we were given details, by the publisher of an educational games company, to design a board game which would appeal to year 6 students. The game involved adding and subtracting fractions, finding equivalent fractions and renaming fractions as a percentage. The game also had to be challenging, fair, exciting and had to incorporate the element of chance. We designed a 3D board game called "Let's Climb", that included dice and maths equations on game cards. The winner of the game is determined by how many fraction equations players answered correct.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL ANNUAL CHRISTMAS APPEAL
Thank you to the many families who have already contributed to our St Vincent de Paul Annual Christmas Appeal. Our boxes are beginning to fill. We are continuing to collect items until the last day of school. Alan Casperson will visit St Luke's on Monday 30th November at our School Assembly when we will then present our Term 3 Big Breakfast school community's donations to our St Vincent de Paul chapter.
St Luke's School is excited to announce the upcoming launch of a new web portal for our parent community. Access will be restricted to parents of students at our school and a logon will be required. Notifications of these details will be sent home in the near future.
The Parent Portal will enable easier access to information about happenings in the school, forms that need to be returned, names and contact details for staff, policy information and much more. In future, Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) will also look to introduce an area to provide more direct information about your child or children's learning. We will be making increasing use of the Parent Portal to provide a range of information to parents in the future. Watch this space!
