Electives

St Luke’s College understands that learning is personal and acknowledges the importance of every child achieving success. The small nature of our classes enables our staff to know each student intimately and enables us to individualise learning to best cater for each student’s needs. Our curriculum and approach to teaching is focussed around ensuring that all students are engaged in challenging and meaningful educational experiences.  This means connecting to the needs and skills of the contemporary world, developing essential skills such as creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, technological proficiency and global awareness.  Students are encouraged to strive for personal excellence and are assured that at St Luke’s College their best is always good enough.

All students will study seven core subjects for the whole year consisting of:

  • Religious Education
  • English
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Physical Education
  • Health Education

In addition to these core subjects, students will be able to participate in electives in a variety of areas to cater for different interests and aspirations.

Year 7 and 8 students are given the opportunity to rotate through all electives to get a taste of each area so they can best decide where they would like to specialise in future years.  They will participate in:
