Parent Teacher Interviews - 31 March and 2 April

Parent Teacher Interviews are scheduled as an opportunity for parents to meet with their child’s core teacher to discuss progress to this point in the year. Term 1 Parent Teacher Interviews will be held on Tuesday 31 March and Thursday 2 April, from 3.15pm - 7.30pm.


Bookings for Parent Teacher Interviews can only be made on the Parent Lounge through the Parent Portal. The online booking system will be open from Monday 16 March at 5.00pm and will close on Friday 27 March at 5.00pm. All appointments are 15 minutes duration. Appointments are unable to be made after this date in order to allow teachers to fully prepare for interviews.


Primary Swimming Carnival - 20 March

The Year 3 to 6 Swimming Carnival will be held on Friday 20 March at Fairymead Pool. The carnival begins at 9.00am and will conclude by 1.30pm.


Parents are invited to attend the swimming carnival but will need to bring their own seating. House Tent areas will be fully supervised by teachers. It is requested that parents remain out of the the house tent and marshalling/timekeeping areas, so that staff can organise students for events and maintain the safety of students under their supervision.


A copy of the program for the carnival will be distributed via the School App in the week of the carnival.


Queensland Bulls Masters Cricket Clinic

During a recent visit to Bundaberg from the Queensland Bulls Masters, a number of budding cricket players from Year 4 and 5 were lucky to attend a cricket clinic at St Luke’s. Former Queensland Cricketers shared their knowledge with our students, leading drills and training exercises and working on skills development, before participating in a Question & Answer session and signing autographs.


This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to benefit from the experience of these players and to meet some former stars of the game.







Primary Disco

Our P&F Primary Disco will be held on Friday 13 March at 5:30pm - 7:00pm in the Lohse Centre. Our theme this year is: What Makes You Happy (that will be a bit of glittery bling for me!). $5.00 entry for students includes a sausage sizzle and a drink, with additional drinks and sausages available for purchase. Come along and enjoy the evening with our Rockstar Middle School Leaders leading the dances and Dylan Wick, our resident DJ extraordinaire.

Important Note: Parents of students in Prep to Year 3 will be required to stay and supervise their children during the disco.

Free Dress Day - 19 March

On Thursday 19 March there will be a non-uniform day for all students in Prep to Year 12.

The day is to raise funds to support victims of the recent bushfires, including wildlife. Primary students are invited to come dress in free dress accompanied by a favourite fluffy animal toy if they wish. There will be a $2 donation for wearing free dress on this day. Money will be collected from students at the beginning of their school day.


Judith Locke Parent Seminars

On behalf of the parents who were able to attend the Dr Judith Locke parent sessions on 24th and 25th February, I would like to express our appreciation to the P&F for their work in assisting to bring Judith to St Luke’s. Feedback from both sessions has been exceptional and we hope parents are able to implement some of the practical strategies Judith shared at her seminars.


If you were unable to attend the sessions, Judith’s book “The Bonsai Child” is available to purchase from, or follow Judith’s Facebook page “Confident and Capable” or read her column in The Sunday Mail.


Primary Students Afterschool

As we have many students who have older siblings in the Secondary School (13 years and older), we invite parents to use this LINK, to give permission for your younger students (12 years and younger) to wait together, while awaiting collection after activities such as being in the Learning Hub and/or afterschool sports activities. This must be submitted if you do not wish your child to be delivered to Outside of School Hours Care (OSHC), and wish your older sibling to supervise.
