Our Vision

The school of choice for our community, one of the best schools in Western Australia, and a driving force in the development of the dynamic Pilbara region.

We take pride in the all-round achievement of our students and strive to instil high personal goals through various academic and sporting initiatives and extra curricula programmes.

Pastoral Care

We provide outstanding pastoral care which ensures the holistic development of each student by catering for their emotional, social, psychological and spiritual growth.

The strong pastoral approach and structures that pervade our school emphasise the development and differences in each individual and their particular gifts and talents.

House Structure

The House system is an integral part of the pastoral care structure in a Catholic school – based upon the presumption that all individuals are made in the image and likeness of God. Each individual in our College is in possession of specific gifts, gifted by the Holy Spirit and our pastoral system aims to awaken these gifts as students grow and develop.

The Role of the House Coordinator is to ensure the welfare and academic progress of each student in the faction.

The House Coordinator works closely with the Vice-Principal and the Pastoral Care Group teachers to ensure the total care of each individual student.

The College has four Houses named after the local rivers in the region: Fortescue, Harding, Maitland and Nickol.

House Name Motto House Coordinator
Fortescue 'Strength Through Unity' Mrs Carly Kinch
Harding 'Striving to Achieve' Mr Aaron Pedlar
Nickol 'Charging to Victory' Mr Wayne Sharpe
Maitland 'Seek Excellence' Mrs Jackie Nicholls

Student Welfare

With the assistance of the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program

St Luke’s College prides itself on the Pastoral Care provided to each student in the College. In line with the Mission of the College which is to be a “Catholic Learning community developing young people to be the best they can be, make a positive difference in the world and actively live their faith”, St Luke’s undertakes the task of holistic education in a very positive manner.

The College values the emotional, spiritual and psychological elements of young people’s growth in the same way as it values the academic and physical development and acknowledges the support from the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program.

The College has a very strong and supportive Pastoral Care system which becomes essential to the operations and welfare of the students. It is their daily contact with supportive staff.

Much of the nurturing is achieved through the Religious Education and Health Programs where students are provided with opportunities to engage with topics relating to their personal growth and wellbeing.

In addition to the Curriculum aspects, the students engage in sharing their talents with others through the Christian Service Program. This motivates the students to be aware of the needs of others and to help where possible.

Furthermore, the students engage in Motivational Workshops to provide them with strategies of achieving to the best of their ability.

On staff, we have one member who administers the Rainbow program and also the Positive Schools Program to ensure that the students view life from a positive point of view.

The College Counsellor is also available for the students to assist them in dealing with their problems and issues no matter how big or small.

The College acknowledges the support of the Australian Government through its financing the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program.
