St Luke’s Anglican School is successfully preparing Bundaberg students for bright futures. But don’t just take my word for it.
According to a state-wide survey by the Queensland Government, about 95 per cent of St Luke’s Year 12 graduates are engaged in further tertiary education, training or employment in 2019. This result is well above the Queensland average.
Some 65 per cent are enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree at university, 13 per cent perusing VET pathways and a further 18 per cent of our students transitioned directly into paid employment.
We are proud of the achievements of our graduating students. Not only have they performed strongly in their studies, but they have also shown strength of heart, mind and character; ready and willing to take their place in a globalised community.
It’s the quality of the future of our students that we are most excited about as a school. We’re committed to developing the whole child, and it’s a real reward when we see a St Luke’s Anglican School education giving our students a head-start in life.
Students surveyed described St Luke’s teachers as “extremely supportive” and pointed to the opportunities they were given to pursue their sporting and humanitarian interests.
St Luke’s Anglican School leavers reported studying a broad range of degrees from medicine to IT, international relations, psychology, social work, tourism and secondary education. Others attained jobs in fields such as hospitality, logistics, dental hygiene and sport.
The Next Step Post-School Destination Survey of all government, religious and independent school leavers shows that St Luke’s graduates have bright futures ahead of them.
