Principal Welcome

Hello and welcome to the St Anthony’s Catholic College community. I hope you spend some time exploring our website as it gives a good insight into what we are about. 

Many schools set out to provide their students with a full rounded education including physical, academic, spiritual, emotional and social elements. I believe St Anthony’s is extremely good at this. We come from the rich Catholic, Franciscan faith that highly values every living creature. We are a welcoming community embracing all the wonders of learning.

Our College Motto is “Let Your Light Shine”. As children of God we are called to let our light shine.

“No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.”
Luke 8:16

 This means we want all of our community to SHINE. We all have talents and it is our God given right to develop these to the best of our abilities. This is what St. Anthony’s Catholic College endeavours to do. It is a shared approach with the parents and carers being both valued and necessary in the process if our children are to reach their true potential.

The College is on two vast campuses. Padua (Primary) set on 5.5 hectares and Assisi (Secondary) set on 12.7 hectares. Padua has recently undergone a face-lift with new buildings catering for the ever growing needs of a contemporary and comprehensive primary education. Assisi is only ten years old and boasts great resources, delivering a varied curriculum.

Our greatest asset at the College though, is our dedicated and very professional staff. They are a vital part of this learning environment and continue to look for ways to better meet the needs of the community.

The College has an active Parents and Friends' Association (P&F) and College Board who meet regularly, providing a voice for our parents and carers.

St. Anthony’s is a learning community; a faith community and importantly, a community built on love.
