Values Education


The St Luke’s school values are:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience
  • Empathy 
  • Integrity




St Luke’s school values are Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Empathy and Integrity. These are directly aligned with the ‘Australian Values’ and reflect our school vision, ‘I have come that you may have life and have it to the full’.

As a whole staff and with consultation with the school community, we collaboratively decided on our school values. Our five chosen values are reflective of the ‘Australian Values’. Three of our values; Integrity, Respect and Responsibility were explicitly extracted from the ‘Australian Values’. Our decision to include Empathy incorporates the ‘Australian Values’ Care and Compassion, Freedom and Understanding, Tolerance and Inclusion.  Resilience includes, Doing your Best and Fair Go. Honesty and Trustworthiness is emphasised in our values of Empathy and Integrity.

Students participate in multi age 'Friendship groups' biweekly which focus on social, cultural and contemporary events as well as a focus on the school and Catholic values.  Topics covered include, Refugee Week, National Sorry Day, Harmony Day, 100 acts of Kindness.
