Our School

St Luke's Primary School

St. Luke’s School was opened in 1961 and is situated in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. St. Luke’s School is in a unique situation regarding its status as a Parish School. Its students, and therefore the families it serves, come from a wide geographic area and come from 28 different cultural backgrounds with students with a Language Background other than English being 67.4% of our school population. Curriculum provision needs to be specifically designed to meet the wide variation of needs of our students.

From Our Staff

Journeying together in partnership

We extend a warm welcome to you and your child to St Luke’s Primary School. We are delighted to be a part of your child’s education and we trust that our association will be mutually supportive and fruitful as we journey together in partnership. We realise that the change in environment for your child can be a huge experience. We will make every effort to ensure that the transition will be as smooth and pleasant as possible. Your child will need all our care and attention and we look forward to working closely with you during this time.

Through the St.Luke's School portals, newsletters and curriculum evenings we will keep you informed of current initiatives happening in the school. We have also included some material that you may find helpful if your child is the first in your family to begin school. We invite you to assist the parent bodies and the school staff to provide the best facilities for your child’s education. We hope that our school will be recognised for its commitment to Catholic Education - not only through our Religious Education Program but also through our commitment to families and each other.

We focus on the total development of the child. In doing this we hope to provide a context for each child’s natural creativity to emerge. We value openness and encourage quality relationships between children, teachers and parents as we attempt to establish and maintain structures that encourage, invite and facilitate involvement.

Our aim is to provide the children with the skills to become life-long learners. Hence our curriculum is designed in such a way that students develop an openness to truth, a tolerance of different views and an ability to judge critically and become independent thinkers who accept the responsibility for their own behaviour and learning.

We hope that St Luke’s will be characterised by a sense of compassion, inclusiveness, openness and generosity. We hope our students will go into the world believing that with God’s help they can make a difference and that they leave us with the confidence in their abilities while demonstrating resilience for challenging times.

 

Please feel at home in our school. We look forward to our new beginnings.

Strengthen the love our families share, as we become a sign of your love to others.
