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, Brisbane Catholic Education and wider community, St Luke's Catholic Parish School 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, on Quandamooka Country, local flora and fauna are visible around the school grounds. St Luke's provides the perfect blend of the small school community with the resourcing of a large school.  The welcoming environment ensures that all students feel safe and happy, leading to a joyful education.


St Luke's  Catholic Parish School evolved from the parish community wanting to provide a quality Catholic education and to nurture the faith life of their children.  Under the leadership of Father Gerard Kalinowski (Parish Priest), St Luke's School began its development in 1988.  In that same year, Sister Lynn Albury of the Presentation Order was appointed founding Principal.  With the support of the Catholic community and Brisbane Catholic Education, stage one of the building process commenced.  In January 1989, St Luke's Catholic Parish School opened with 12 staff members and an initial intake of 98 students from Preschool to Year 3.
