New Arrivals

The New Arrivals and Recent Arrivals program supports students and their families whose first language is not English, who have Refugee or Migrant status and who are eligible for funding from the Australian Government via the Catholic Education Office.

 

We currently have a number of students whose first language is not English. These students are supported in the classroom via our EAL teacher and Learning Support Officers. One of our Learning Support Officers speaks fluent Mandarin and is able to communicate with our Mandarin speaking students and their families.

 

Currently, we have students who speak Mandarin, Indonesian and Arabic.

Prep Transition

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 'actual' turn begins.

 

Letters of Offer for Prep will be posted at the beginning of June.

 

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 afternoon with Class 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.
