Development Opportunities

St Luke’s Anglican School offers a range of activities and challenges throughout the year to engage students outside the classroom. Recently the following opportunities were offered to students.


Opti-Minds - Is a problem-solving event with amazing challenges in Language and Literature, Science and Engineering, and Social Sciences. Students will engage in critical and creative thinking, sustainable thinking, cooperative problem-solving, time and budget management, communication skills and responsibility. Available to students in Years 4 - 9.






“It takes a Spark” EDU Conference - Is an enrichment experience for female students and teachers interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The conference is hosted in Brisbane and requires an overnight stay. Available to female students in Years 6 - 10.






It isn’t too late for students to be involved. If your child is interested in either of the above, please contact Mrs Christa Stone (christa-stone@stlukes.qld.edu.au).

Learning Analytics - Continuous Report

It has come to the School’s attention that some parents were not able to access the continuous report in Learning Analytics. The issue causing this has now been addressed and parents of Middle and Senior students should now have access to the full range of reporting for all subjects. If parents are having trouble using Learning Analytics please contact me (matthew-hughes@stlukes.qld.edu.au) or give our IT support team a call on 4132 7522.

Accessing Learning Analytics will require parents to use the Parent Portal, available at our.stlukes.qld.edu.au.

Information about the Parent Portal and instructions on how to use it are available on the School website at www.stlukes.qld.edu.au/community/online-portals.
