If a student is completing NAPLAN Online, they have the same amount of time to complete the test as a student completing the paper test. For example, home-schooled students completing NAPLAN Online may attend another school or central location on the test days as a visiting student.
Do students have to sit a selective test prior to entry? The enrolment intake is comprehensive and there is no academic selection test required prior to confirming a place at the School. St Luke's is proud of its academic achievements. The School follows a robust curriculum and aims to implement rigorous strategies to ensure each student is provided opportunities to reach their potential and beyond.
St Luke's offers a Gifted and Talented program for those students requiring further challenge and extension, and a Learning Support program for students who require further support.
Does my child have to be baptised or attend a church? While St Luke's is a Christian School in the Anglican tradition, its intake is open to students of any faith background.
It is not a requirement to be baptised or to attend a church. Each child though, will be required to attend a weekly Christian Studies class and a weekly Chapel Service for the duration of the time they are at the School.
Parents and students are expected to support the Christian ethos of the School.
How far in advance should I send in an Application? Application to Enrol forms are accepted from birth. General advice would be that as soon as you have made the decision that you'd like your child to be considered for enrolment at St Luke's, then it's appropriate to submit an Application to Enrol form at that time, no matter how early.
The majority of Enrolment Interviews occur in Date of Application order, so early submission of Application to Enrol forms is advantageous.
However, please note that Date of Application is only one of several Enrolment Criteria, and when reviewing Applications, sometimes other matters are also taken into account to determine the scheduling of an Enrolment Interview.
When will I know if my child has a place at the School? Enrolment Interviews and Offers of Enrolment usually occur in the time frames listed below. After an Offer of Enrolment is extended, a family usually has 2 to 3 weeks to confirm their Offer of a place, with the payment of the Acceptance Fee.
In some cases, for Year groups where the demand is high, a place may not be able to be confirmed until much closer to the desired date of commencement, due to the Year group being fully subscribed, and the availability of further places being dependent on a confirmed student leaving.

Siblings who are on the Wait List are placed in the 'Sibling Priority' group. For intake Years, Cottage, Kindergarten and Year 7 if a sibling is on the Wait List prior to the conducting of Enrolment Interviews for that Year group, then it is usual that they will be called in for an Enrolment Interview before those on the General Wait List.NAPLAN testing starts this week.
