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.

HAPPY AND SAFE HOLIDAYS
We would like to wish every member of the St Luke's community a safe and happy end of term break. Term 2 has certainly been very busy and everyone has well and truly earned a break. We look forward to Term 3 as it promises to be another great term at St Luke's.
NAIDOC WEEK preparation – WEEK 11 "Storyline"
We celebrate NAIDOC week with our Aboriginal families. Students and staff will be engaging in the following whole school activities over the week: Shared Reading with Buddy Classes, Storyline – 'St Luke's Story on Canvas' and Thursday Prayer Assembly.
We celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities.
NAIDOC originally stood for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself. Find out more about the origins and history of NAIDOC Week.
We would like to thank Tara Shaw for her very generous donation of reading resources to support indigenous education. These books will be used throughout the school to help us celebrate NAIDOC Week. Also, a big thank you to Conor Graham for giving up his time to help all of our classes with their artwork. A special thanks to our Aboriginal families for their ongoing contribution to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
All families are invited to our Thursday Prayer assembly which will be led by Year 4 White and our Aboriginal students. This will also be a chance for the students to farewell Tim Lomas.
