Our History

​​School Descrip​​tion

St Luke’s Catholic Parish School caters for children from Prep through to Year 6. In partnership with our families, our Parish, the Brisbane Catholic Education Office and wider community, St Luke’s offers a curriculum which supports the growth and development of the whole child: socially, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, physically.

Our staff respects the uniqueness and dignity of each child and bases teaching/learning programs on sound educational theory and practice. Set amid pockets of natural bushland and native gardens, our modern buildings and facilities offer an attractive and welcoming learning environment for children P-6.

A Brief History

St Luke’s Parish began in March 1987 with Mass being celebrated in the Police Youth Club, and later transferred to the presbytery carport. The church was designed as a multi-functional building and officially opened in August.

The commencement of St Luke’s School evolved from the community wanting to nurture the faith life of its children.

Under the leadership of Father Gerry Kalinowski (Parish Priest) St Luke’s Catholic Primary School began its life in 1988.  In that year Sister Lynne Albury was appointed founding principal and, with the support of the catholic community of our local parish and the Brisbane Catholic Education Office, stage one of building began. 

The following year St Luke’s School opened with 11 staff members and an initial intake of 95 students from Preschool to Year 3.
