Acknowledgement of Country

St Anthony’s School acknowledges Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the traditional custodians of lands, waterways and skies across Australia.

We thank you for sharing and caring for the land we learn and play on.

We pay our respects to Elders, and we share our friendship and kindness.

Our Vision Statement

St Anthony's School community works collaboratively to teach and live the values of Christ. While respecting tradition, and to meet the demands of a rapidly changing society, it strives to educate our children to their full potential.

3+ Semester 2

We are currently seeking interest in enrolments for our 3+ program, Semester 2. Our aim is to run a second 3+ day on a Thursday in Semester 2, depending on enrolment number. This is a full day program and runs from 9:00am – 2:30pm. If your child is turning 3 from the start of July 2022 or is already 3 and you are interested in more details, please contact Gill in the front office on 9303 7500.


Our primary focus for the 3+ Program is creating a smooth transition from home to the school environment and ensuring your child feels safe and happy in our care.

Our program is based on The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and aims to encourage children to form new friendships and develop their emotional, social, physical and cognitive skills in preparation for kindergarten.

Activities include singing and dancing, stories and a range of sensory, play based and craft activities. Outdoor play and snack time provide opportunities for socialisation and belonging. The children are encouraged to make their own choices, foster independence and express their creativity as much as possible.


Many congratulations to the following families on the safe arrival of their precious babies:

Teddy, a little brother for Lyla Jenner

Charlie, a little brother for Alessandra, Eva-Sofia and William Hay

Harrison, a little brother for Emilia and Isabella Porcaro

Quin, a little sister for Madeleine Aitkins

Faith in Action

Value of the Week: Faith in Action and Being United

Jesus believed in his disciples and the people he met. He encouraged them to work together. As students from St Anthony's, this is the St Anthony's Way. We use our faith in Jesus to work with each other to create a school environment where we work together in peace and harmony.

Medical News

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to remind you all again to keep any child home that is unwell. This is standard practise.

We have been sending home a large number of children that have either a runny nose, headache, sore throat, persistent cough or an upset stomach. While the child may not have COVID these are all symptoms of the virus, and I would strongly urge you have your child tested, with either a PCR test or a RATs test at home. If positive, then your child needs to isolate for 7 days.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Warmest wishes,

Aleisha Raby

School Nurse

Pre-Primary News

Wow, what an amazing year we are having in Pre-Primary. We are learning to read and write words and have even written a sentence! We have read some great books and love to make artwork about them. We really enjoyed reading “A Surprise for Dingo” and have made our own dingo in the Great Sandy Desert.

We have also learnt about feelings. Some feelings are comfortable, like happiness and excitement, while others are uncomfortable, like embarrassment and sadness. Understanding how we feel keeps us safe.

We can’t wait to see what else this year has in store for us.
