This document contains the Mandate, Mandate Letter, Terms of Reference and Membership of the Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia. It supersedes the 1981, 1993 and 2001 documents.

Dispute and Complaint Policy
Catholic schools can serve as models for all within Western Australia who seek to create genuine communities. Such communities are always founded upon shared commitment to the common good (Mandate, para 6).
Evangelisation Plan 2018 – 2021
The purpose of St Luke’s Evangelisation Plan is to bring into focus primary objective of our College community:
The provision of a Catholic education at St Luke’s College recognises that there are a series of constraints imposed by financial considerations. A key factor is the commitment that parents are asked to undertake to support the college by payment of fees. The Fees Policy will apply to all families without exception.
Information and Communication Technology Policy
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) provides schools with the opportunity to promote educational excellence by facilitating communication, innovation and sharing of resources. ICT provides significant educational value but can pose a risk of exposure to inappropriate and offensive material as well as personal safety.
School Retreat Policy
School retreats are an integral part of the life-long faith formation of young people. They promote systematic, intentional catechesis as part of the comprehensive evangelisation of students.
Student Assessment Policy
Assessment assists teachers and schools in:
- monitoring the progress of students and diagnosing learning difficulties;
- adjusting programs to ensure all students have the opportunity to achieve the intended outcomes;
- developing subsequent learning programs;
- reporting student achievement to parents; and
- whole-school and system planning, reporting and accountability procedures.
Assessment procedures must therefore be fair, valid and reliable.
Workplace Learning Policy
Workplace Learning and Training Programs and Work Experience Programs provide a valuable pathway for students to explore their transition from school to post-school opportunities and the world of work in a safe and supported environment.
Dealing with Visitors Policy
Duty of Care is central to St Luke’s College. The College endeavors to provide a safe and secure environment for all members of the community at all times. One such area is the procedures for visitors. It is imperative that all visitors are known to be on the premises and so they should all be requested to sign in at the Front Office on arrival.
The uniform at St Luke’s College is a symbol of the College community and it assists students to develop a sense of unity and belonging. Wearing a uniform encourages a sense of pride in appearance.
