Planning For The Future
Strategic & Annual Improvement Plans
St Luke’s is proud to be an Anglican school with ambition to afford young men and women the best educational opportunity in the region. During 2014, the 2015 to 2019 strategic plan was developed in consultation with stakeholders and rolled out at the school council meeting on Tuesday 28 October 2014. The strategic plan defines strategies for future directions and resource allocation over the coming five years. It also forms the basis around which the annual school improvement plan is set.
The 2020 to 2024 Strategic Plan will be developed during the course of 2019 to be implemented in the beginning of 2020. The 2016 Annual School Improvement Plan was developed in accordance to the 2015 to 2019 Strategic Plan.
The development of the School Improvement Plan provides the school community with a clear direction and understanding of what the school wishes to address in 2016.
The 2016 Annual School Improvement Plan is linked directly to the School’s Strategic Plan. Outcomes that were set for 2016 will be reviewed towards the end of the year and a new Annual School Improvement Plan will be created for 2017. Once finalized, the plan will be published and shared with our school community.
The St Luke's master plan is set to be revised and updated in 2017 providing us with a fresh, long-term direction for the school. The underlying motivation for creating a master plan is our pursuit of refinement in the school environment as well as our ambition to offer the best possible teaching and learning facilities to our students.
Four major building projects have dramatically changed the appearance of the School and improved the capacity for staff to deliver lessons in modern, state-of-the-art learning spaces.
The Middle School Building opened this year providing students with a unique, state-of-the-art learning environment that embraces collaborative learning styles and outdoor learning space.
The recently constructed Performing Arts Centre brought all the performance subjects together in one place and proudly offers purpose-built spaces for classroom music lessons, small performance practice, drama and dance. The jewel in the Performing Arts Center’s crown is a multi-purpose performance space that can seat 154 people in tiered seating.
The new Library and Resource Centre has become the envy of many schools. Coming in just shy of 1 100 m², this building is now the hub of learning for all students across campus. The Library and Resource Center offers four classrooms, including a primary computer lab and lower primary reading room specially equipped for children in kindergarten to year 2. It boasts a lecture theatre that can seat more than 180 students as well as a multimedia production room.
Two purpose-built state-of-the-art senior secondary science classrooms have now opened, increasing the number of labs on campus to five.
Catering has become a commanding subject since the opening of a modern all-stainless steel hospitality room that compares easily to commercial kitchens in fine hotels and restaurants across the country.
The Early Learning Centre continues to flourish since the introduction of our second Pre-preparatory Classroom. To accommodate this additional classroom, St Luke’s built an entirely new Kindergarten.
The primary oval was redeveloped at the end of 2012 though laser levelling, and additional new turf was laid down improving the play space.
The amphitheatre area outside of the Hollingworth building also underwent a remodel at the same time, and this has provided a much improved lunch time eating area along with an outdoor teaching space for teachers and students.
The Preparatory and Year 1 playground has also been redeveloped.
