Our Staff

At St Luke's Catholic College, our staff work to foster new ways of teaching and learning


As a Catholic ‘next generation learning community', St Luke's is founded on the collected wisdom and experience of our exceptional educators.

Our teachers are passionate and creative, inspiring a love of learning in students every day. They foster exploration and innovation, drawing on students’ passions, talents and learning styles to create an education that cultivates the whole child -- academically, socially, and emotionally.


The St Luke’s educator:

  • listens to and appreciates each student as an individual
  • guides the development of social-emotional skills through class activities, individual goal setting, and 1:1 coaching
  • plans and assess a well-rounded education using academic milestones
  • creates hands-on learning experiences through projects and community experiences
  • partners with parents to best support their children
  • uses technology to enhance in-person learning, not replace it

Our educators are empowered through:

  • technology and a support team that enables them to spend more time with each student and less time on clerical tasks
  • flexibility to create meaningful experiences for their students
  • mentors and educational leaders who draw on the latest research in learning to guide professional development
  • a rich and varied network from which to draw experiences and share best practices
  • 1:1 partnerships with business and the community to develop educational tools
