"Never see a need without doing something about it"
Smaller in size, bigger in opportunities.
"We have attended St Anthony’s for six years with our
three children. We have loved the small class sizes
providing our children with some much support, care
and focus. St Anthony’s offers a fabulous community
of parents and teachers that really care and know how
to get the best out of your children."
"St Anthony’s is the perfect learning environment for our child. It has a lovely community feel with wonderful, experienced teaching staff. As soon as we toured the school we knew it was the perfect fit, as it is a nurturing environment where it feels as though everyone knows each other and the kids are happy."
Welcome to St Anthony’s Primary School Alphington. Our nurturing environment and small class sizes allow us to offer a personalised learning approach. Our experienced and dedicated team respond to the needs, interests and experiences of each student.
We are committed to providing for the educational, social, physical, spiritual and emotional needs of students within a holistic approach to education.
We have a vibrant and welcoming school community where parent support and involvement is encouraged at every stage.
Student voice and leadership is encouraged in our learning, fostered through our Student Representative Council, Vertical Groups Program, Year 5 and 6 leadership programs and house teams.
We believe that fostering a love of learning will assist students to meet the challenges of the future, and allow them to thrive both personally and academically.
We look forward to welcoming you on a tour so that you can see our wonderful school in action.
St Anthony’s Primary School Alphington, was established in 1917 by the Josephite Sisters and has a proud history of supporting the community.
The school opened its doors at 43 Austin Street with Sister Isobel Colvin as its Principal with the latest building development named in her honour. From a humble two classroom building, we now boast 12 classrooms, multi-learning areas and a newly renovated playground in 2021.
The school moved to its present site in 1934. The Josephites lead the school up to 1974 and we are presently lead by members of the Salvoratorian Order.
In 2017 the school celebrated 100 years of Catholic Education.
