Welcome to St Luke's Primary School

WANTIRNA

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the St Luke’s School community, I would like to warmly welcome you to St Luke’s Parish School. 

St Luke’s is a vibrant and diverse community that welcomes all families. For families with students currently at St Luke’s we look forward to continuing to partner with you on your child’s educational journey and for new families considering enrolment at St Luke’s, we would welcome the opportunity to present to you the great educational opportunities that our school has to offer.

 

Our school vision “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full” - John 10:10, encompasses our philosophy and commitment to providing a holistic educational experience for our students and their families. We are proud of our strong links with the Parish community and our Catholic identity. Our students have many opportunities to demonstrate and deepen their faith through participation in a meaningful religious education, social justice activities and in supporting initiatives of our very active Mini Vinnies program. Through Gospel values and our school values of respect, responsibility, resilience, empathy and integrity we strive to enable the full flourishing of each child by attending to their spiritual, physical, cognitive, and emotional and social learning development.

We believe children thrive when they feel safe, secure and happy. Developing the whole child includes developing positive and productive relationships between our students, families, staff members and the community. We offer high quality educational programs that give all our students the foundations for developing the skills to be successful lifelong learners and active citizens. This is made possible by the dedicated, passionate and generous-hearted staff we have here at St Luke’s.

I am very proud to be the Principal of St Luke's and warmly invite you to contact us for the opportunity to experience belonging to this wonderful community.

Enrolment

Thank you for considering St Luke’s Primary School for your child's education. We are very proud of the work we do and the opportunities that we provide for our students. St Luke’s Primary School is an inclusive school where enrolment is open to Catholic, and students from other faith traditions whose families support the values of the Catholic School. 


Enrolments for Prep are taken the year prior to commencing school. We encourage you to book a school tour by contacting our school office on 9801 6917 or by emailing info@slwantirna.catholic.edu.au.

 

Prep enrolments are open to all students who turn 5 years by 30th April of the year they begin school.

Prep Transition at St Luke's

At St Luke's Primary School, we provide a comprehensive transition program for our ‘new’ Prep students. The children engage in fun activities which build their confidence and friendships, with their teachers and bigger buddies. Students become very familiar with our school so that they are ready when their school life begins.

Interview

Parents and prospective students will meet with the Principal or a member of the Leadership Team for a short interview during Term 3.

Kindergarten Visit

Our Prep teachers will visit students at kindergarten for an opportunity to interact with them in an environment in which they feel safe and comfortable.

Transition Afternoons

St Luke’s offers a number of transition afternoons where the children will be involved in ‘get to know you’ sessions with the current Prep teachers or our specialist teachers. At the same time parent information sessions will be held with members of the school Leadership Team to inform parents about the running of the school and the types of curriculum offered.

Orientation with Classs Teacher

The Prep transition session is an afternoon for students in their classroom for 2021, with their teacher.

Parent Information Evening

A parent information evening is held in late November to partner with our parents to ensure their children are ready to begin school the next year.
