Welcome to the 2013 school year. I am delighted to have been appointed as Acting Principal at St Anthony's Parish Primary School. As a matter of introduction, I have been Principal at a neighbouring Catholic school for the past 7 years and have been working in our Archdiocesan schools for 27 years. I have been immediately impressed by the school facilities, the sense of community spirit that is evident, the dedication of staff and the programs on offer at the school.
St Anthony's School is located at the centre of Tuggeranong in Canberra's south. The school grounds are spacious and well established. The school prides itself on providing a rich and varied curriculum, with a strong focus on Numeracy and Literacy. The school has contemporary learning environments that foster academic achievements in all students. The school is well resourced in all areas, including learning technologies.
St Anthony's is an inclusive school and we strive to provide the best education for students embracing Catholic faith and values. You may have heard of the ancient proverb that says "...it takes a whole village to raise a child." At St Anthony's we value quality partnerships between families, school staff , our parish and the community. Each and every person works collaboratively to support the education and development of each student at the school. The school provides high levels of pastoral care and has clear and effective behaviour management procedures in place.
Enrolment enquiries are welcome for students from Kindergarten to Year 6 at any time. For more information or a tour of our school please contact the school office. Our school motto is "Tell the Good News" and I would welcome the opportunity to discuss our Catholic school or any aspect of your child's current education with you.
