Lumen Christi is a Catholic primary school which endeavours to work with families to educate children in a Christian atmosphere of love, trust and responsibility. We endeavour to inspire by our name, create a welcoming environment which prizes the dignity of the individual, nurture within the Catholic tradition each individual's spiritual journey, foster enjoyment of learning, nourish self expression, embrace our whole community and focus on justice and citizenship.

We view education as a partnership between school and home, and therefore strongly encourage parent participation. Since opening in 1990, Lumen Christi today has a total enrolment of over 330 children, with modern air conditioned classrooms and interactive whiteboards, a purpose built junior learning centre, a fully equipped technology centre, a library, a dedicated art room and beautiful grounds.

We work to create an atmosphere which fosters social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth in a Christian community enlivened by gospel values, encouraging children to reach their full potential. Our school strives to recognise and respond to the dynamic nature of the community it serves.
The school holds the basic tenants of delivering a comprehensive educational program with a strong focus on the teaching of values, wellbeing programs and pastoral care. Our aim is to offer an excellent academic program in modern and comfortable facilities in an open, safe and spacious environment.

Lumen Christi is a Professional Learning Community.

At Lumen Christi our Mission for learning is, 'We are committed to developing lifelong learners empowering all to succeed and to SHINE in the Light of Christ.'

At Lumen Christi our Vision for learning is, 'To work collaboratively and share responsibility for all student learning which is child centred and data driven. We aim to excite and engage students to take ownership of learning where excellence and success are highly valued.'
