    VISION STATEMENT

    This is a place of courage where everyone can give voice to their aspirations and concerns. Our relationships are marked by

    empathy and trust. The adults here are strong and conscious role models. In this place power is always at the service of the

    people. We take risks and so sometimes we make mistakes. We learn their lessons and move on stronger. Laughter is heard

    here often and we celebrate our success. People here are passionate in their advocacy of depth in learning

    and in the pursuit of a more just world. We know that the dignity of our work is that we touch the future through

    and for our children and that tomorrow is being built today.

    PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

    Dear Parents and Children,

    We celebrated a whole school mass this morning to

    mark the beginning of this term. The focus of our

    learning was on “Attentiveness to God‟s presence”

    and to pray for God‟s guidance and influence as we

    try to develop our gifts in the service of others.

    We wish our Cross-country student representatives

    all the best at Mawson Park on Friday as they

    compete in the interschool championships. All

    children competing have been notified by Mr

    Noseda and will be transported by bus to and from

    the venue on the day. Race fixtures commence at

    10.00am.

    Friday week (8th August), parents and students

    should be aware that St Luke‟s has a Pupil Free

    Day scheduled. Staff will be working through the

    National Quality Standards (NQS) framework for

    early childhood education.

    After the Docker shocker a fortnight ago, we get our

    chance to redeem ourselves against the Blues at the

    unusual day and time of tomorrow night. I am

    hoping we have woken from the slumber of last

    match and can resume our charge to the finals.

    Be happy and enjoy the coming week

    David Hunter

    PRINCIPAL

    CALLED TO HOLINESS

    Lord, you call us by name, and you call us to holiness

    as you did St Luke. We ask you to fill us with your Spirit

    so that we, too, may reflect the life of your Son

    in our thoughts and attitude and in our words and actions. Lead us to grow more aware of your presence in our lives,

    and empower us to bring the good news of your love and salvation

    to all those you have entrusted to us. Amen.

    PARKING

    Thanks to the many parents who ensure they

    follow the parking guidelines set by the council

    and those of the school. Could I ask that parents

    do not park on the paved area adjacent to the

    Basketball/Netball courts or on the footpath.

    Nationally Consistent Collection Data

    (NCCD)- Permission Returns

    Some parents were notified before the holidays

    about the NCCD and that their children had been

    identified by teachers as meeting the criteria for

    inclusion. In order that that they be included in

    the data collection, parent permission must be

    given. The data will be submitted this Monday,

    so if it is your intention to provide permission

    please return the slip by the end of this week.

    Information of the NCCD collection is available

    on our website at

    www.stlukeswoodvale.wa.edu.au Go to the tab

    Policies and guidelines.

    EatPlayThrive Free Workshop Dear Parents

    Last term Ngala provided a taster session for the EatPlayThrive workshops. Parents who

    attended this session said it was very informative and worthwhile. Because of the very favourable

    feedback we booked a full workshop with Ngala commencing next week. If you are interested in

    attending this workshop which will be held at St

    Luke's can you please register ASAP. A creche facility is available free of charge. For further information

    please see attachment.

    At this stage we do not have enough people to run

    the workshop so unless this changes by the end of this week I will have to cancel our booking.

    BITS AND PIECES REQUEST FROM

    OUR COMMUNITY

    Pre Primary are on the hunt for bits & pieces and

    odds and ends that are too good to throw away

    and could be „creatively‟ given another life.

    Items such as old Barbie dolls, cars, dress ups

    (no superhero‟s please), PVC piping with

    elbows, pots and pans, baskets, old bike spokes

    and anything else interesting.

    Items for the collage table such as buttons,

    ribbon, wool, lace, zips, string/twine and

    anything else along those lines.

    If you have any furniture eg old coffee tables,

    story chairs please come and see us with a photo

    of the item before bringing it in, so we can see if

    it is suitable.

    Get creative, we‟d love to upcycle things from

    our community and give them another life.

    Please bring the bits and pieces and odds and

    ends to the Pre Primary classrooms.

    Anything we receive that we can‟t use we‟ll

    check with the other classes or donate it to

    St Vinnies.

    Thanks for your help and support.
