Catholic Education

primaryweb 400Working Together in Mission with the local Catholic Schools

This really is the ‘go to’ statement for the ‘how to’ of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne. You are the ones invited to ‘bring it to life’.

Saint Luke the Evangelist ~ the Local Catholic MACS Primary School

Our next Principal, Mrs Clare Ryan, comes to us as the former Deputy Principal and Leader in Faith across two schools, St Gabriel’s and St Stephen’s Reservoir and Reservoir East respectively. She begins this new appointment on August 8th 2022. “I feel so passionately that as educators, we can help each child meet their own personal potential - academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. It is so important to partner with families to develop the whole child and it is these partnerships that l treasure. My other passion is my family. I am married to Mark and have three adult children - Jack, Cait and Dylan. They inspire me every day. I also love walking and socialising. Life is full. The future is always exciting in education.”

Let’s make Clare welcome when she arrives.

This School strives to cater for individual needs and provides diverse learning opportunities that promote growth, spirituality and learning. This occurs both personally and communally in all our students so they appreciate what it means to be a global citizen, as this is our goal. Children are all unique and as a parent, choosing a school is a hugely important decision. At this School we acknowledge that parents are their child/ren’s prime educators, especially in Christian faith and consider ourselves privileged to work in this partnership with you.

Our students are taught, nurtured and inspired by an outstanding team who are dedicated, passionate and committed educators, role models and mentors. We believe that when teachers, parents and students develop strong relationships built on mutual trust and respect, then our students will become empowered and resilient life-long learners. We strive to contribute to the development of students’ sense of well-being, faith, enthusiasm for learning and optimism for the future.

This School provides a safe, inviting and secure environment with a supportive Parent, Professional and welcoming community. At this School we currently have 165 students who belong to 110 Families, learning, believing and growing. This number of students ensures every child is known to us and each has many opportunities to participate in our engaging and varied programs and activities.

I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to share more about this unique community. When you would like to enrol your child/ren in this Melbourne Archdiocsean Catholic School (MACS) please let me know.
