Community

The students and staff of St Luke's School are well supported by both our Parish Priest, Fr Joseph Amal and the parent community.

Parent Partnerships

Our school recognises the important role that parents play in the education of their children, where we believe that parents are the primary educators of their own children.  At St Luke's our aim is to create inclusive Family-School partnerships and welcome opportunities to further develop the relationships between our school and the parent community. Research shows that when parents and schools work together,  students outcomes increase.  

There are many opportunities to become involved in the life of our school.

Family-School Partnership Opportunities:

  • Parents and Friends Committee - ongoing

  • Banking Mums - weekly
