Sport is an essential part of every student’s education at St Luke’s, and students participate in a variety of sporting endeavours from Kindergarten right through to Year 12. Physical Education classes are led by experienced teachers with a passion for guiding students toward excellence in their chosen sport.
Primary students play inter-school sports every Friday afternoon. Middle and senior students have the option to sign on for Wednesday after-school sport at various times throughout the school year.

We value the contribution that Outdoor Education provides toward our students' education. Outdoor education offers a diverse range of challenges, experiences, responsibility, skills and an opportunity to test their abilities in a safe, well supervised natural environment.

Senior students are invited to participate in a number of extended school excursions and study tours throughout years 10, 11 and 12. St Luke’s also coordinates cultural exchanges to Japan and Germany.

Cultural Immersion and Student Exchange Tour to Germany
Since 1997 St Luke's initiated a sister school relationship with a school in Bavaria, and since then, 350 students and more than a dozen staff have immersed themselves in the rich German culture and language for a month. In kind, St Luke’s has welcomed an equal number of students from Germany to stay with us. This year we will oversee the 9th round of our exchange program that is open for all students from Years 9 to 12.
In more recent years, St Luke’s has begun to offer a long-term individual student exchange program to a school in southern Germany. These students are given the experience of living and studying in Germany for the entire Term 2 in Gaienhofen, a small town on the banks of Lake Constance. In kind, a few select St Luke's families will welcome a German student into their homes for the entire Term 3.
Japanese Cultural Exchange Program
St Luke’s offer their students an exchange trip to Japan during the September holidays every two years. This inspirational life-affirming experience is open to Years 10 to 12 students and not exclusively to students of Japanese. The tour provides St Luke’s students first-hand experience of Japanese life with families from our sister city in Settsu Osaka. Students live with a host family and attend lessons at Settsu High school with their host student. The tour program also includes an extensive tour of this beautiful and historically significant country, taking in Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto and Hiroshima.
