St Anthony’s College offers relevant, dynamic and engaging curriculum for Prep to Year 12
The Defence School Mentor (DSM) program has been made possible through funding by the Defence Family and Member Support (DMFS) to provide ‘hands on’ support within the College for ADF members and their families. The purpose of this role is to support students during their transition into and out of the College or at times when a parent is absent from home due to deployment, training exercises or courses.
