Community Engagement

 

St Luke’s Grammar School has an active and dynamic school community and warmly welcomes the involvement of parents and carers in a wide range of community activities and programs.  

 

Twice a year all parents and carers are invited to meet in a forum with the Principal and School Executive to discuss a range of topics in the public arena. Invitations and dates for the 2017 Principals Fora will be published in Grammar News.

Volunteering

 

St Luke's welcomes parent and carer volunteers to help with various activities including working in the Canteen, Uniform Shop or Library, reading programs in the Junior School, managing or coaching sports teams, or assisting with musicals, drama performances, joining the St Luke’s Community Choir and other events.

 

It is the policy of the Anglican Schools Corporation that all volunteers must provide a current Working with Children Check and all volunteers must complete the online check and submit their details to St Luke’s for verification. For further information see www.newcheck.kids.nsw.gov.au. 

 

To volunteer please complete and return the Dee Why Volunteer Form.

 

For further questions, please feel free to contact Ms Kai Romot, Director of Development, Communications & Communities: kromot@stlukes.nsw.edu.au

Class & Year Parents

 

Being a Class Parent or a Year Group Parents at St Luke’s is a valued and important role. 

 

We thank our Parent volunteers for their tireless endeavours to support the children and the School.

 

The role of Class and Year Group Parents is to:

  • Be an advocate for the School
  • Be a point of contact for fellow year group parents on social events (such as morning teas, dinners, picnics, Easter Egg hunts etc)
  • Be a supporter of School Events and School Values
  • Be an encourager of others to get involved in the School Community
  • Disseminate information about and encourage participation in School Community Events (such as Trivia Night and the mid-winter Family Movie Night.)
  • Liaise with the Director of Development, Communications & Communities

 

Class Parents are responsible for 'friend raising' within the community and any parent or carer can volunteer. Class Parents work within their year group to organise class or year group social events for families, for example, parent dinners, morning teas, welcome events, weekend picnics, Easter egg hunts etc.

 

Bayview P&F

 

The Bayview Campus has a formal Parents & Friends (P&F) Association. The Bayview P&F is involved with friend-raising throughout the year. Year Representatives are sought from each year to welcome new families, organise class or year group social events and to support from their child’s year. 

 

Class Representatives: Every class is represented by one parent who is a member of the P&F. The representative may organise social events for the class, class tables at functions and is actively involved in other areas of P&F work.

 

The Bayview P&F meets once a month during term time and new members are always welcome.

 

Community Building Community

St Luke's believes in the value of building community.

We'd like to be able to identify and support local businesses that are owned/operated by our School families. We'd also like to encourage other members of our School Community, when looking for particular services (swimming schools, nurseries, coffee places, restaurants, etc) to perhaps consider supporting our St Luke's families too, so that in turn, we can really become a community that builds community.

Following are some local businesses that are owned and/or operated by our own St Luke's families. Please support them where you can.

If you are a parent at St Luke's, and also own and/or operate a local business (particularly those that provide services for families), please contact grammarnews@stlukes.nsw.edu.au if you'd also like to have your business featured.


We encourage you to support our St Luke's families below:

Disclaimer: The School does not endorse these businesses, nor can the School attest to the quality of the product/service delivered. The acknowledgement of these businesses purely is to build community, and to encourage families to support fellow St Luke's families who are in the business of providing products/services to the local community.
Note: There is no cost for this acknowledgement in our weekly Newsletter. All the School seeks in return, (in an effort to build mutual relationships with our Community) is the opportunity to place a St Luke's small brochure stand/display in the business' foyer, with details about the School and upcoming Tours and events.
