SUSTAINABILITY

This is just a reminder that Mondays will be plastic free/waste free lunches ie. please do not add in anything to your child’s lunch box that needs to go in the bin (besides food waste). This includes cling wrap, yoghurt containers, chip packets… Let’s see if we can reduce what is going into landfill.

KEEPING SAFE RESOURCE

Catholic parents are being encouraged to make use of a new guide on how to protect their child’s personal, physical and emotional well-being, in accordance with Church teachings.

Protecting God’s Children- A Catholic Parent’s Guide to Keeping Their Kids Safe aims to build strong parent-child communication, develop a language of safety, cultivate optimism, and educate children as young as four years old on how to identify and respond to unsafe situations.

To obtain a copy of Protecting God’s Children – A Catholic Parent’s Guide to Keeping Their Kids Safe please contact the Archdiocesan Safeguarding Office on 9221 7763 or email safeguarding@perthcatholic.org.au

THANK YOU

Our school would like to sincerely thank the Coutts family for their generous donation and delivery of a number of cable drums that our teachers have been able to use in their classrooms. Your generosity is greatly appreciated !!!

SHINE PROGRAM 

At St Luke’s we have commenced an Enrichment Program, called SHINE, which provides an opportunity for students to work in a smaller group with like-minded students from Yr 4,5 & 6. They meet once a week and are given the opportunity to work on activities that are challenging, more in depth and open ended, while incorporating their interests. Last term the students were introduced to some sessions on Philosophy which exposed the students to thinking about thinking. They have also spent time on researching their “Passion Project” and learning about robotics during a Scitech incursion.
