The School's Mission is "Equipping Students to Make a Difference in the World”
The School seeks to develop young men and young women who are marked by kindness, grace, compassion, humility and humility. Opportunities are provided for students to visit local and international communities, to help those less fortunate then themselves. As an Anglican School, students will experience an inclusive community which treats each person as important because they are made in the image of God. The School adopts an intellectual rigor to all subjects and also to the study of the Christian faith. Students are encouraged to bring an open and critical mind and to understand the rich heritage of Christianity.
Learning excellence at St Luke’s is achieved through the School’s focus on learning.
St Luke’s aims to develop students as independent, responsible learners. Students set academic goals, and reflect upon their learning strategies and progress in order to achieve their goals.
LEARNING@STLUKE'S is a framework for teaching and learning which identifies learning as the core focus of the School. The LEARNING@STLUKE’S framework moves beyond the traditional approach to learning to combine the acquisition of content knowledge with the development of character.
Appropriating Guy Claxton’s Learning Powered Approach, the framework draws together research on how students learn and what abilities strengthen their capacity to learn. Within our framework we have identified 5 R’s associated with learning.
Powerful learners display capacities associated with 4 R’s - Resilience, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness and Reciprocity (the capacity to learn with others). The 5th R in the LEARNING@STLUKE'S model is Restoration. While we seek to grow students as learners, more importantly we seek to grow students as human beings, who display the dispositions of kindness, grace, compassion, humility and justice.
