EDUCATION + LEARNING
Lucas' proposed Education Precinct and Learning Hub design shows the benefits of being part of a master plan.
A network of walking paths and cycling tracks connecting open parkland will make it easy and safe to move around. Lucas’ planned Education Precinct and Learning Hub is just one of the benefits of being part of a master planned community.
Planned within easy reach of all residents and located on the central linear open space reserve will be a choice of both public and private schools featuring shared sporting facilities.
The Education Precinct and Learning Hub currently houses Siena Catholic Primary School (P-6) and in time will also include a state government school (P-6).
The precinct is aimed at providing plenty of space for outdoor activities, designated bus and car-park zones for safe pick-up and drop-off, direct access to major sporting facilities at the Lucas Central Park, and a secure, controlled environment achieved through the placement of school administration buildings at the entrance to the school grounds.
By providing schools, shopping, business opportunities and parks within Lucas there is little reason to jump in the car.

Lucas Siena Catholic Primary School
Our Vision of the Lucas Catholic Primary School attends to the core purpose of the school to foster the growth of students to enable them to be fully functioning members of our society. The Vision will be prefaced on an understanding of what it means for a Catholic school community to be engaged with the world in all its diversity, complexity and plurality while bringing the perspective of the tradition into dialogue with that world.
