Vision Statement

Our Catholic school invites families to journey together with their faith, based on the Catholic story and traditions.

We develop deep understanding of self and others through engaging with the local and global world.

We provide an environment that is safe and secure, values each person and promotes excellence in learning for the 21st century.

As a learning community, opportunities are presented for all to experience success and to be resilient in diversity.

School Philosophy

At St Anthony’s School we believe that:
  • We provide a safe, stimulating and accepting environment for all children
  • Children’s prior knowledge, interests, background, needs and expectations are taken into consideration when planning
  • Each child is capable of successful learning and achieving their personal best
  • Children have individual learning styles and our teaching practice caters for these differences
  • Students learn from each other and need to be given opportunities to do so
  • Children work in classrooms, where risk taking is seen as an important part of learning
  • Children need to receive and give ongoing constructive feedback in relation to their learning
  • Children need to feel confident and be valued members of the class
  • Children need to engage in purposeful, challenging and relevant activities
  • In order for children to be independent learners they need to be given the skills and time to achieve this
