St Luke’s is an exciting and thriving preschool to post school learning community which is designing a new normal for learners aged 3 to 18 years of age.
In a place where “Learning = Infinite Possibilities”, staff and parents work as partners to nurture faith filled curious children to become creative contributors and innovative problem solvers for a changing world.
Underpinned by Catholic faith, our Long Day Care Early Learning Centre commences a 15 year learning journey for 3 year olds where we value play because it is through play that children learn. At the age of 5, children take one small step next door to primary school where teachers ensure the foundations of reading, writing and mathematics are a part of their learning each and every day.
When students enter secondary school we introduce life coaches and teacher mentors who work with students to consider post school pathways. As a part of this real world approach to learning, students are challenged to reflect on who they are, what they can do and what problems they want to solve in this rapidly changing world.
We also ensure students stop and reflect on their development of capabilities required for a changing world; they being their ability to:
- Witness in the way of Christ
- Manage themselves
- Relate with others
- Inquire thoroughly
- Think critically
- Create solutions to help the less fortunate.
Throughout the learning journey the staff of St Luke’s increasingly provide students with choice and autonomy to make decisions about their learning. All this happens within an extended school day, 6:30am-6:00pm, Monday to Friday where we bring together the five educational services of early learning, out of hours school care, primary school, secondary school and a High Needs School (2020).
Although young in our development as a Catholic Learning Community, I know students will graduate from St Luke’s as confident and resilient young adults who will know their place in the world and how they can live a lifestyle of fulfilment and contentment.
