Welcome to the Community of St Anthony's
It is my pleasure to welcome you to St Anthony’s Catholic Primary school uniquely situated in the culturally diverse suburb of Noble Park, Melbourne.
St. Anthony’s Catholic Primary School enhances inclusive learning and teaching through authentic partnerships with families. St. Anthony’s promotes learning in perfect harmony through encouraging the deep questions of life linked to Catholic faith, promoting high expectations and ensuring the full flourishing of every person. A culturally diverse community and infinite variety of life experiences enables us to activate wellbeing in many wonderful and creative ways. From playgroup to the Early Learning Centre operated by the ECMS offering quality early learning 3 year old and 4 year old kinder programs, through to Year 6, and offering many adult education programs, St. Anthony’s creates a learning environment for all.
Learning brings hope. Within St Anthony’s Catholic school that hope is based on the experience of God’s love and care for all. Within this community, learning is seen as a journey of endless possibilities, where students are energised to seek meaning and explore questions about the world around them. In partnership with parents and the broader Church, Catholic schools contribute to a life-foundation for students that is centred in Jesus Christ and grounded in truth, beauty and love.
At the very heart St. Anthony’s is a desire for the full flourishing of each student, across religious, physical, cognitive, emotional and social domains. Here we support students to grow in virtue and to embrace a view of themselves and the world that leads to peace, justice, and the prospering of the whole of creation. It is a journey that is enlightened by faith, animated by love and leading to hope. (from Horizons of Hope 2017- An Education Framework for the Archdiocese of Melbourne )
St Anthony’s connects with the Parish of St. Anthony’s where students are encouraged to be people of action who will go forth and contribute to the world with strong and warm hearts.
We invite you to visit during May at our Open day or please organise a tour appointment and come in and see our community in action.
We honoured the ANZAC's last Tuesday in a beautiful service that the Catholic Social Teaching team planned and created for us. We lay a wreath at our flagpole and observed a minutes silence in honour of the fallen.
Please assist us in supporting your child to be ready for 2018 Naplan by reminding them that their hard work and energy that they have applied to their learning since Prep is the best preparation that they need for Naplan. Being calm and feeling ready during Naplan week is important. Our teachers will ensure that they know the structure of the test and will give them the same care and support that they do every day at school.
SCHOOL CLOSURE DAY
Please note that Friday 1st June will be a school closure day. This means no school for students. After school care will be available if thre are enough numbers to run the the whole day.
JAPANESE CULTURE IN TERM 2
Foundation: It's all about the sounds of the Japanese alphabet the first part of the term. Student are learning how to recognise the Hiragana script and identifying the corresponding sound.
Grade 1 and 2: The students are learning how to follow complex instructions in Japanese and are really enjoying acting them out. (Just check out the photos) this has allowed them to consolidate their learning of body parts, colours and numbers 1-10. The next part of the term we'll be mastering our counting in Japanese to 100.
Grade 3 and 4: Students have been watching a movie and investigating Japanese Manga. They will be starting their narrative stories and developing Manga characters for the next part of the term.
Grade 5 and 6: Students have been developing their own Japanese game shows that will be going live in week 6. We can't wait!
