The supportive culture of the school is exemplified in the collegial approach to professional development of staff members and the involvement of parents in the extensive Information and Training Programs.

St Luke’s Primary School is part of the Southern Region of the Sydney Archdiocese. Most students are drawn from the local parish community and the immediate local areas. The school was founded in May 1950 by the Sisters of St Joseph.  Our school motto is Peace and as a Catholic School we commit ourselves to Celebrating being Catholic; Ensuring quality teaching and learning; and Fostering peace, justice and love.  The school is proud of its safe, happy and welcoming learning environment. Religious Education and the integration of gospel values is the centre of teaching and learning at St. Luke’s. The liturgical, sacramental and prayer life of the school is strongly supported by the Parish Priest, Father Geoffrey Plant and the school is noted for its community service and social justice outreach initiatives.  A major refurbishment and building program was completed in 2005 when twenty-one classrooms were refurbished and a new administration area and library built. The construction of the new school/parish hall is expected to be completed during 2010.  A great strength of our school is the community spirit that exists with the Parish Priest, staff, students, parents and parishioners of St Luke’s. We work together to provide children with every possible opportunity to grow spiritually, academically and emotionally, in an environment in which they feel safe, loved and supported.

Revesby High Schools:

 

 

Sir Joseph Banks High School
Turvey St, Revesby NSW 2212
ph: (02) 9773 6054

Our school was established in the spirit of Mary MacKillop, an Australian woman who, in the last century, was able to share her tremendous love for God and people through educating the young.

In her zeal for Catholic education, Mary began an order of Sisters who eventually set up schools throughout Australia and New Zealand. Her life was devoted to education, a task in which her love was alive: a love which brought warmth and a sense of reverence for persons, spoke of compassion and forgiveness, and showed that faith could provide purpose for the journey of life.  At Mount St Joseph that spirit of Mary MacKillop finds expression in the education of girls of all abilities from families who live in our region and seek a Christian education. Our students are at the stage of rapid intellectual, physical and emotional development of adolescence.  Within the controlled and disciplined environment of school they will be guided in their growth and development by teachers who are committed to the Christian vision for living.
